colourQ 294

Happy Tuesday everyone!  Today there's a new palette up at colourQ and this week we are inspired by these adorable flip flops that have been embellished a bit!  How cute is that?

I use white so often as a card base that I like to shake things up a bit every so often and use something different.  Today's card starts with a Soft Suede base so that I could have some contrast between it and the Pool Party and the two shades of yellow.  I love how it looks!

This is two days in a row that I've used a doodled flower image from Rubbernecker Stamps.  I love the abstract look of these images and how you can use them to layer colors together.  And speaking of layers the sketch at the Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge was a great way to use some paper layers to show off the colors of the challenge.  The top layer was wide open and perfect for this flower image and a little sentiment.

It's no surprise to you, I'm sure, that the colourQ design team has some beauties to inspire you this week to join us in the gallery!  I hope you do!

Thanks for stopping by!
