colourQ 138

Tuesday, May 22, 2012

This week at colourQ, not only are the colors totally cool, but the inspiration behind the colors that Arielle found is enough to make me swoon!

I. Love. Shoes.  Hello, my name is Jen and I love shoes.  In fact, I have been called Imelda Marcos.  My closet has so many shoes in it you'd think I was compensating for a childhood where I was barefoot all of the time.  And the sad thing is that I don't own any kind of shoe stamp.  Oh, the horror!  So, although I couldn't do this image justice I did the best I could with some flowers.

I stamped one of my favorite Verve floral stamps in Poppy Parade, then fussy cut them out and added a More Mustard button to the center.  The leaves were stamped in Crumb Cake.   To add some interest to the Pool Party layer I stitched a zig-zag around it.  This very cool layout is courtesy of the Sketchbook Saturday challenge, although I've just realized that I forgot the ribbon!  Yikes, I hate when that happens.  Apologies to Chupa!

I hope you have a chance to play along with us at colourQ!  The design team has got some fabulous inspiration for you, so head on over to check it out then upload your own creation!  Don't forget to link!

I think Chupa will forgive you for no ribbon, cuz this is a STUNNER! Those flowers are in-your-face gorgeous! Now, go out and buy some shoe stamps instead of some shoes!

I'm the same about shoes Jen and have to hold myself back when I go shopping! (I do NOT need another pair of shoes, I do NOT need another pair of shoes...!) Your card looks wonderful without shoes - those flowers really are gorgeous in punchy Poppy Parade.
