colourQ 239 and Seize the Sketch 19

Tuesday, April 29, 2014

Happy Tuesday!  Today I've melded the beautiful colors from colourQ and the latest sketch from Seize the Sketch to make a little "thinking of you" card.



The colors are inspired by this dress and the sketch comes to you from Jessi Fogan (I love all those little flags)!  I used some really, really old SU DSP for the background layer on my card and I'll admit it was hard to cut into it.  (If you've been here before you may remember that I've mentioned a time or two that I've got a giant stash of patterned paper that I've been slowly working my way through).  Occasionally I come across a particular favorite in my stash and in moments of weakness, I cut it up.  It's for the best really.

I love sketches like this with a big layer on it that is just perfect for anything your imagination can cook up!  I used it to show off these beautiful colors with some stems and butterflies.

Be sure to check out the inspiration from colourQ and Seize the Sketch because there are some great cards all around for you to see!  Thanks for stopping by!

Supplies:
Stamps:  Grand Peaceful Wildflowers, Winged Beauties (My Favorite Things)
Paper:  Pretty in Pink, Old Olive, Whisper White, Berry Bliss DSP (SU)
Ink:  Ripe Avocado (Papertrey Ink); Tuxedo Black (Memento); Calypso Coral, Pumpkin Pie (SU); Copics
Accessories:  Winged Beauties die (My Favorite Things); Banner Bundle die (Verve)
