colourQ 215

Tuesday, November 12, 2013

I'm pretty sure the new color palette from colourQ should have had me reaching for some autumn leaves, but I couldn't resist trying something a little different.

I spent a lot of time deciding how I wanted to approach my card for this week's challenge.  I had seen this awesome sketch at Sketch Frenzy Friday and was determined to make it work somehow.  But once I settled on the sketch I couldn't figure out what colors should go where.  After much trial and error I settled on the arrangement you see here.  My only regret is that I wish I had stamped off the grid pattern stamp to make it a little more subtle.  Oh, and I wish I had a better idea for the horizontal flag at the top.  But that's it.  Really.

The rest of the colourQ team have made some wonderful cards for you this week, so make sure you head on over there and check them out.  I hope you can join us in the gallery!

Stamps:  Off the Grid (SU); Delightful Dahlia Additions (Papertrey Ink)
Paper:  Solar White (Neenah); Bravo Burgundy, Pumpkin Pie, Crushed Curry, Whisper White (SU)
Ink:  Rich Razzleberry, Basic Gray (SU); Pitch Black (Adirondack); Onyx Black (Versafine)
Accessories:  Pierced Rectangle STAX (My Favorite Things); Flag Tag dies (Paper Smooches); Halloween sequins (American Crafts)
