colourQ 273

Tuesday, December 23, 2014

Even though this weeks palette from colourQ could easily inspire a Christmas card (it was in fact inspired by this tree on an advent calendar) I'm all Christmas-ed out and went in an entirely different direction.  Last week's Make it Monday technique was a cool way to use die cuts on a card by "camouflaging" them.  The look is pretty cool and I wanted to try it out.

Cool huh?  I layered the die cut four times because I really wanted it to show up.  Plus the sponged colors are pretty dark and I was afraid that if I didn't have enough dimension, you wouldn't be able to see the cool look of the popped up sentiment.  I also went over the die cut with my Wink of Stella pen to give it some glitz and it looks really pretty in real life!

This is a busy time of year so this colourQ challenge will stay open for two weeks to give you extra time to play along.  The design team have created some beautiful projects to be sure to check them out!

Thanks for stopping by!
