colourQ 339!

Tuesday, April 26, 2016

Here we are at Tuesday again and, of course, that means it's time for a new palette at colourQ.  This week's color combination always makes me think of a more masculine card and so that's what I did.  I'm pretty sure that I've made variations of this card before with similar colors, but I just love how these bold colors lend themselves so well to a bit of a color-block design.

I used the April sketch from Viva la Verve as my layout and gave the two background layers some texture with this awesome new embossing folder that I got recently.  The die cut sentiment was cut three times and glued together for a bit of additional dimension.

Be sure to pop on over to colourQ and check out these gorgeous colors and the inspiration from the design team.  It's our last week that design team member Amy will be with us so be sure to pop on over to her blog and give her a little colourQ farewell!

Thanks for stopping by!
