colourQ 253 and Seize the Sketch 26

Tuesday, August 5, 2014

Happy Tuesday!  Today is the day for a new color palette at colourQ as well as a new sketch from Seize the Sketch.  The colors (inspired by this dress) as well as the sketch (designed by Katie Melus) are a match made in heaven!



I used a little grungy stamp for a background then went to town using the other gorgeous colors.  I wanted to use a little floral collage so I combined some old SU images with some new SU and created this.

Be sure to check out the colorQ and Seize the Sketch challenges.  There are cards there that are amazing!   Thanks for stopping by!

Supplies:
Stamps:  Flower Patch, Off the Grid, Raining Flowers dies (My Favorite Thing)
Paper:  Early Epresso, Summer Starfruit, Tim Holtz (has some energy party girl)
Ink:  Early Espresso, Summer Starfruit, Tempting Turquoise
Accesories:  Chocolate Iridescent sequins, Wink of Stella pen

This is lovely, Jen! It has lots of texture, so even with a super simple sketch, there's a lot of beautiful details to take in.

I love that you used a little grunge to add texture to the flowers. And you can't go wrong with sequin scatters!
