colourQ 179

Tuesday, March 5, 2013

The color palette this week at colourQ is usually one that I can wrap my creative arms around.  But when I sat down to create something I developed the card-makers equivalent of writer's block.  I'm not sure what that's called but I think I'll call it Ink Stop.

After much muttering to myself and puttering around my stamp room I finally settled on combining the colors with the nifty sketch at CAS(E) This Sketch.

I recently got this new washi tape which luckily fit the color challenge pretty well, so I stuck a few pieces on my kraft card base then added a felt flower and a daffodil delight button.  I stamped the sentiment directly onto the washi tape before I remembered that washi tape and ink don't go so well together.  Not only is the image kind of faint, but I don't think it's dry yet!

The crafty gals at colourQ have got some great cards this week, so I hope you have a chance to head on over there and check them out.  Then join us in the gallery - we love to see what you do!

Stamps:  Chit Chat (Paper Smooches)
Accessories:  Felt, washi tape (October Afternoon), Daffodil Delight button (SU)

Your write-up sounds like you just plopped some things down. If it was that easy - I am SO jealous because this is such a fun and wonderful card!! Thanks for joining us at CAS(E) this Sketch!

Ink Stop is a great way of expressing that awful feeling Jen! I like your washi tape idea for this card - but will that sentiment ever dry?!!!

I have only recently got some washi tape for the first time and I just love working with it! This layout is perfect for the washi tape. Great card; love the craft base and the flower looks great! TFS.
