colourQ 204

Tuesday, August 27, 2013

I really love it when Arielle challenges me with super cool colors at colourQ.  It makes me think outside the box and use colors together that I never would have thought of using on my own.  This week the palette is inspired by this spoon rest.  

At first I had a bit of trouble deciding how to fit in the Concord Crush and Bermuda Bay so I used those bolder colors as anchors for the focal image.  There's a hint of Concord Crush behind the flower layer and by stamping the sentiment on the Bermuda Bay I added a splash of color contrast to the front.  I wasn't sure if I would like the end result, but I do.  I even stamped a few splotches of Bermuda Bay on the flower layer to soften the look.  And I must give credit to Friday Mashup for drawing up this awesome sketch that I used as my layout.  

The ladies at colourQ have got some great projects to show you this week, so be sure to check them out.  I hope you can join us in the gallery too!  Thanks for stopping by!

I stopped in my tracks at the grape color with no idea how I would use it - but you have used it wonderfully. It makes the panel of delicate flowers totally pop!
