colourQ 332!

Tuesday, March 8, 2016

Did you know that there are only 11 more days until spring?  Yep, that's right.  The days are getting visibly longer, the birds are chirping more often, and I'm just about ready to put the ice-scraper I use on the car windows back in the garage for its long summer nap!  Ahhh, life is good!

Today we've got a new color palette for you at colourQ and don't be alarmed when you see it.  When I first took a gander at it, I stared at the picture for a really long time trying to figure out how I was going to use all those colors in one place!  But as usually happens, eventually an idea came to me.

I had it in my head to use the sketch at Can You Case It with these colors and to throw some washi tape on there in place of the two banners.  So my task was to figure out which colors to use for which element of the sketch.  Luckily I had some washi in at least one of the colors, the two blues went together for the flowers, and my background splotch (the circle on the sketch) by default was the yellow.  Done and done!  And also lucky for me the challenge word this week at Just Us Girls is flower.

I stamped the sentiment directly onto the washi and it's a bit difficult to see in the picture, but in real life it looks pretty good!  My fellow colourQ teamies have done some amazing things with these colors so be sure to head on over there and check them out!  I hope we'll see you in the gallery!

Thanks for stopping by!

Dang, girl! You've done it again. You've gone and made an fantastically beautiful CAS card, and done so brilliantly. Love those sweet blooms, and the Washi tape was a super substitute for the banners. Great card! Bev

Beautiful use of these colors! I don't think I'm brave enough to give them a go this week! We celebrate the change of seasons on the first of the month here, so we're already 10 days into autumn... sigh... I don't like summer but I'm not overly fond of winter either :)
