colourQ 299

Tuesday, July 14, 2015

Happy Tuesday!  It's time for a new palette from colourQ!  This week our colors are inspired by this rug.  An eclectic batch of colors if I've ever seen any!  But I see a challenge and I embrace it with both arms, all of my stamps, ink and whatever else I can scrounge up, then I get to work!

The background of my card is a bit of card stock embossed with translucent embossing paste and another bit stamped with an old SU background stamp with a canvas "texture."  I remember the days when background stamps were all the rage and I was convinced that I couldn't live without them.  Well fast forward a "few" years, I don't use them much and my life still has meaning! Even still I wouldn't want to part with them.  They give such great texture without adding any bulk.

 I was a teensy bit late making my card this week, but luckily the Mojo sketch came to my rescue.  It's been a dog's age since I've played along over there and truthfully my card-making style has evolved away from the layers that are a hallmark of the Mojo sketch.  But every once in a while I like to do something a bit different than my norm.  This sketch was perfect for showing off the colors and a bit of my old DSP that I can't seem to get rid of!

The colourQ design team has really rocked the colors this week so be sure to check them out.  And I hope you have time to join us in the gallery this week!
