colourQ 241 and Seize the Sketch 20

Tuesday, May 13, 2014

I'm so lucky because every other Tuesday I get to show you a card I've made for colourQ and Seize the Sketch!  Today the color palette is inspired by this beautiful necklace and the sketch is designed by Lesley.



My translucent embossing paste was feeling a little neglected so I used it to create these diagonal stripes on the center of my card.  I love how that stuff looks!  And I finally got a chance to ink up this beautiful PTI feather.  There's a bit of gold embossing on it that's hard to see in the photo but it looks a little oo-la-la in real life!

Don't forget to check out the challenges at colourQ and Seize the Sketch.  The design teams have created some fantastic projects to inspire you.  And you can also get all the details for playing along!

Thanks for stopping by!
