colourQ 203

Tuesday, August 20, 2013

This week's colourQ colors looked awfully good to me when I first saw them.  Then I saw the Sketchbook Saturday challenge and the gorgeous sponged background of Chupa's card and I knew that I wanted to try it with the colourQ colors.  I think I need more practice :)

I don't do a lot of sponging and when I do, it's usually around the edges of my cardstock so this was a whole new adventure for me.  This is actually the second card that I made.  On the first one I used glossy cardstock which made it easier to sponge, but I had the card turned around so that the green color was on top.  Once I stamped the leafy image on it, the whole thing seemed kind of weird.  I think the green should go on the bottom (like grass) and the blues on top (like the sky).  So I re-did it and this is the result.

As luck would have it, the challenge this week at The Paper Players is to make a one layer card so I'll be entering this card over there as well!  

Thanks for stopping by!  And don't forget to check out the other girl's cards over at colourQ!  Amy is joining the Royal Court so be sure to hop on by and show her some love!
