colourQ 192

Tuesday, June 4, 2013

It's time for a new palette from colourQ!  This week are some pretty colors that, despite the inspiration photo, made me think of flowers.

It's been a while since my Soft Sky ink pad saw the light of day, so after giving it a few drops of reinker I was pleasantly surprised to see that it still made a decent impression.  I thought the layered flowers would look nice in the lighter blue and added the Island Indigo flower as a center accent.  (And my eyes were pretty well crossed once I got done with all that fussy cutting)!

I used the latest challenge at Unscripted Sketch for my layout and couldn't decide what to do for the small rectangle at the top.  So I decided a little poetic license was in order and used some Island Indigo ribbon and a button that matches the color exactly.  And I meant to dry emboss the white layer behind the flower but had it all taped down before I remembered.  I think it would have looked so much more interesting with a little texture.  

Be sure to stop by colourQ and check out the inspiration from the design team.  All the cards and scrapbook layouts are pretty amazing!

Thanks for stopping by!

Stamps:  Bloom & Grow (Verve)
