colourQ 306

Tuesday, September 1, 2015

Hello!  My posting lately has been a bit sparse and I hope to remedy that but I'm back today with a card using the new palette at colourQ!  The colors are gorgeous together and I predict the gallery will be full of beautiful projects!

This dahlia stamp is so beautiful but so tough to stamp!  It's three images and trying to figure out how to line them up correctly is a real pain.  I finally figured it out after about 10 minutes of turning the stamps this way and that!  Luckily my MISTI makes short work of actually stamping the images!

I'm also playing along with Sketch Saturday where this week we get to pick one of their past sketches.  I chose #249 because I love the layered scallops.

This card is headed to a friend this is quite ill.  I spoke to her on Friday and she sounds so upbeat despite everything that is going on and I wanted to send along a few extra words of encouragement.  She's got a tough battle ahead of her and needs a lot of positive energy and prayers.

My teamies at colourQ have made some beautiful cards this week so be sure to check them out.  Hope to see you in the gallery!

Thanks for stopping by!
