colourQ 208

Tuesday, September 24, 2013

I hope you ready for a colourQ challenge that is all about black and white and a splash of color!  The challenge is based on this fab mug and your challenge is to add a bit of color!

For my card I grabbed my Gorgeous Grunge stamp set (seriously I don't think I can make a card nowadays without using this set) especially since I could envision it going so well with the sketch at A Random Thursday Card Challenge.  After randomly stamping some of the images from the set I cut out the layers of the flower from a Sizzix die.  I actually don't like the flower now that I've had a good look at it but since I put it down with a glue dot (and there's no going back after that) it stays.

Ok, I've had a look at the cards from the other colourQ design team this week and you are going to be totally blown away by how awesome they are.  There's a little bit of black, a little bit of white, a little bit of color and a whole lot of creativity, so you HAVE to check them out!  

Thanks for stopping by!

Hi Jen
I love the mix of the grunge set with the flower so I for one am glad you stuck it down-it gives a really funky contrast x
