colourQ 328!

Tuesday, February 9, 2016

Well, we've swung all the way around to Tuesday again.  The weeks go by so fast don't they?  Except when I'm at work, it seems!  Tuesday, of course, means there is a new color palette up at colourQ and this week it made me think of spring and flowers.

I arranged the floral images, stamped in the colors of the challenge, then added some leaves that I die cut out of gold foil.  It's hard to tell they are gold in the picture but they look really pretty in real life!  I also used a stencil with some matte embossing paste to create a design on the pink background but it's impossible to see in the photo.  It's nearly impossible to see in real life! I don't know what possessed me to buy that stuff but the effect is so subtle that I'm not sure I'll be using it all that much in the future.

I have not played along in the Pals Paper Arts challenge in a dog's age, but my friend Linda is the sketch hostess this week and I really liked her sketch and wanted to play along.

Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you have some time to check out our latest colourQ challenge and play along with us.  We love to see you in the gallery!

So, so pretty! The gold open die-cut leaves look divine! As I was reading your post and saw you mention matte embossing paste, I immediately thought "must get me some of that". But then I read on and now maybe I won't get me some of that :)
