colourQ 261

Tuesday, September 30, 2014

Hello everyone!  Tuesday's are all about colourQ and this week we've got a fabulous palette for you.  Inspired by this doormat these colors will surely inspire you!

I love Chocolate Chip so I decided to make it a large layer on my card plus it looked good with the Dusty Durango diagonal layer.  I paper pieced a stamped flower out of Island Indigo DSP and thought it looked awfully plain.  So I added a circle punched out of Island Indigo cardstock to the center of the flower.  But that didn't do too much to jazz this up so I put some Crystal Effects on it.  Perfect!

I loved the angles on the sketch at Viva La Verve this week, so I'm playing along with them too!

These colors have inspired some amazing cards from the colourQ design team.  I hope you have a chance to check them out and to play along with us!  We love to see you in the gallery!

Thanks for stopping by!

Fantastic card!! I love your take on the Colour Q challenge and the design sketch is awesome!! I'm really drawn to angles more in my cardmaking these days : )
