colourQ 156

Tuesday, September 25, 2012

It's so fun to see color challenges make the transition from summer to fall, and this week Arielle's colourQ challenge has got some wonderful colors for fall.  For this challenge, I jumped at the opportunity to ink up some stamps from French Foliage.


I did a little rocking and rolling on my leaves using all of the colors from the challenge and I added a little Designers Natural Button for some 3D interest.  I also based my layout on the sketch challenge at Unscripted Sketches, although I'll be the first to admit that it doesn't look like it.


I scored some vertical lines on my card so that it would fit the sketch, but those lines proved very difficult to show up in my photos.  I tried a bunch of things before I realized that I needed to get the card out of the direct line of my light source.  So I experimented some more and took this photo.


Voila!  Lines!  Good thing I don't have to make a living as a photographer!

Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to head on over to colourQ and see what the super-amazing and oh-so-talented design team has created for your viewing pleasure.  You won't be disapppointed!

This is fabulous, Jen!! Love the leaves and how you used the colours. Was beginning to wonder if the lines were there (wink, wink) until you had the second photo. Way to work them in for the sketch!

Love what you did with your leaves, Jen and the lines are fabulous. I know what you mean about not being able to photograph the lines on white, this picture really shows them well. Have a wonderful Wednesday!
