colourQ 123

Tuesday, February 7, 2012

I don't mind saying that the colors Arielle picked this week for us at colourQ were pretty tough!  I went back and forth several times before I settled on this card.

I chose a lovely Regal Rose dsp from a pack called Patterns Pack II for the larger layer because I thought it would set the stage nicely for the Greenhouse Garden flowers which I stamped in Peach Parfait and Poppy Parade.

And did you notice that the scalloped edges of the Regal Rose cardstock and DP don't match up?  For reasons I have yet to figure out, I did not match up these two things when I cut them out using my very awesome new Edgelit Die.  But luckily when I put the two together, their very asymmetry was interesting to me and I put them together anyway.  The result is what you see here.

I hope you have an easier time with these colors than I did, so be sure to check out the colourQ challenge and show us your creation!

What a gorgeous use of the colors! The flowers are so nicely "framed" by the othe color.

Gorgeous card! Love the color layering on those flowers, and I prefer the offset border the way you did it--more interesting!
