I never know quite what colors I'm going to use when I sit down to make my FMS card, so for this one I checked out some past colourQ challenges and found that the colors for cQc98 were pretty awesome: Soft Suede, Island Indigo, Bermuda Bay, Lucky Limeade and Whisper White. (Although in the interest of full disclosure, I used Very Vanilla instead of Whisper White)!
Every time I use Island Indigo I fall in love with the color all over again. I don't know why I don't use it more often. I guess there's so many other colors to use that it gets lost in the shuffle! But I managed to use it here for my circular/scallopy border as well as the scallop circle. I inked up the tree from Forest Friends in Lucky Limeade and Soft Suede by coloring directly onto the stamp with my markers. And the sentiment is from the soon-to-be-retired For All You Do. I surprised myself by using the Island Indigo baker's twine which I not-so-neatly "tied" together with an Island Indigo Brad. I have had that twine forever, but this is the first time I've used it. Shame on me!
Now, head on over to Freshly Made Sketches and check out the wonderful inspiration from the design team. This is our last week with our guest designers Kathy and Lisa so be sure to stop on by and show them some stamping love! It's been a real treat having them along for our wonderful journey this month!
