colourQ 325!

Tuesday, January 19, 2016

Hello and happy Tuesday!  I'm back with a new card for colourQ This week the colors put me in mind of a Valentine so along with the Valentine challenge at The Paper Players and the sketch at retro sketches my card was born!

I was actually having a bit of trouble working the So Saffron in to my Valentine then I got the bright idea to layer it with some white using my new scribble heart die.  I wasn't sure how it would end up looking since these things invariably look better in my head than they do on paper, but I really like how it turned out!  Then instead of using sequins to float around the big hearts I used tiny little hearts.





Be sure to check out the cards from my colourQ teamies.  They are beauties, but you already knew that didn't you?  I hope we get to see you in the gallery this week!

Thanks for stopping by!

That heart is fantastic! Such a great idea to layer the white and yellow; together they add so much dimension and interest. And those little floaty hearts are just the right touch to add the pink/red colors. Wonderful CAS card. Bev
