colourQ 184

Tuesday, April 9, 2013

Hold on to your hats folks, because the colors this week at colourQ feature some oldies but goodies!  I had to go way inside the box of stuff I've been meaning to sell on eBay for ages, but I did manage to score a piece of Creamy Caramel.  You remember that color don't you?

Now this bag, a nearly $3,000 number from Nieman Marcus is in stock and waiting for your purchase!  And it's also our inspiration this week.  I wanted to a some kind of justice to the color-block look of the bag and got it in my head that the retro sketch this week was perfect for what I had in mind.

I wish I had used a bit more Going Gray (yes, I found some of that in my stash too) instead of just using it on the polka dots on the gift.  But live and learn I say! In any event, I'm happy with how this came out.  Who could ask for anything more?

So hop on over to colourQ and check out the latest colors and inspiration from the design team.  Then join us in the gallery because we love it when you do!

Stamps:  Happy Moments, It's Your Birthday (SU)
Accessories:  baker's twine; white embossing powder; Blushing Bride button (SU); Dimensionals (SU)

Great use of these colors! Love the little tippy presents and your sweet pink button. Great card! $3,000? For a purse? Not in my budget this week...unless I win the lottery! Bev
