colourQ 282

Tuesday, March 3, 2015

And here we are at Tuesday again!  Why is it that time moves along at a glacial pace Monday to Friday but then when the weekend comes all of a sudden it's like a Nascar race!  Well, the good thing about it being Tuesday again is that there's a new palette at colourQ.  There's some newsprint again (loved seeing how you all incorporated newsprint into you projects a couple of weeks ago) and some pretty blues inspired by this scarf.

The sketch at As You See It provided the layout for my card.  I just loved all those layers, especially the circle.  I almost added a flower as the focal point then I spied this feather in my stash and thought it would look better.  I just wish I had done two of them!

There are some wonderful shades of blue on display from the colourQ design team so make sure you check them out.  I hope to see you in the gallery!  Thanks for stopping by!

Stamps:  Feather Finery (Papertrey Ink); Label Love (Altenew); Stitched Together (Close to My Heart)
Paper:  Classic Ivory (Flourishes); Natural White (Neenah); Basic Black, Buckaroo Blue, Soft Sky, Vellum (SU)
Ink:  White (WPllus9); Onyx Black (Versafine)
Accessories:  Vertical Stitched Strips die (My Favorite Things); Circles die (Little B); clear matte embossing powder (Wow); black embossing powder

I really like the layout of your card - the circle frames the feather perfectly and I do like the stitched detail too. Love this colour combo!
