colourQ 292

Tuesday, May 19, 2015

Hello and welcome to my latest addition to colourQ!  This week our palette is quite bold and is inspired by this wall art.

How's that for a bold color palette?  I took the inspiration colors one step further and used some rays on my card to mimic the rays in the photo.  I did the inlaid die technique and substituted Coastal Cabana for the rays of the sun.  I also added a slim black border around the focal layers to make them pop a bit more.

The CAS challenge this month at Happy Little Stampers is to use die cuts or punches so I'm going to add this over there too!

As usual our colourQ design team has made some beautiful cards with these colors so be sure to check them out.  You won't be sorry!  And thanks for stopping by!

Stamps:  Hashtags (Tim Holtz)
Paper:  Classic White (Flourishes); Basic Black, Daffodil Delight, Strawberry Slush, Tangerine Tango, Coastal Cabana (SU)
Ink:  Tangerine Tango (SU)
Accessories:  Sunshine die (Simon Says Stamp)
