colourQ 140

Tuesday, June 5, 2012

Tuesday brings another fabulous color challenge from Arielle and colourQ for you to try.  For me it was a chance to re-purpose some winter DSP for a non-winter theme.



The real red DSP is from Ski Slope which I paired with a very simple whisper white layer embossed with my favorite PTI embossing plate.  And in a nod to Marisa I've crimped my butterfly before adding a button as embellishment.  She makes the most lovely butterflies.  The first time I saw her crimped butterfly I loved the look and filed it away for future use - and my friends, the future is now!  I think it looks fantastic in these colors.  My layout is from the latest Sketchbook Saturday sketch which I kept fairly simple.


Now head on over to check out all the design team cards at colourQ, then don't forget to link up!

Fun bright colors this week! I hope I can find time to play along. Love the crimped butterfly. I would have never guessed that was winter DSP!

Your lovely cards are always a great reason to stop in for a visit, but I do like to drop by on colourQ days for a little peek at Ryan too. :)
