colourQ 212

Is it any wonder that the new color palette at colourQ inspired me to dig out some more Halloween stamps?  And when I think Halloween I invariably think of this witch from a long-retired SU set called Best Fiends.   She's pretty awesome!

I actually had a couple of cards made with these colors but wasn't satisfied with either one.  Then I remembered this cool Deconstructed Sketch and knew that the circles would be perfect to show off these bright colors.  So I scrapped what I had done and started all over again.  From those circles it was a short leap to the square that features this old gal!

I hope you have time to check out the challenge and join us at colourQ.  The design team has put together quite a variety of projects for you, and not all of them are Halloween themed!  Head on over to check out the imaginative designs!

Paper:  Neenah Solar White; Tangerine Tango, Kiwi Kiss, Wisteria Wonder, Basic Black (SU); X-Press It Blending Card
