Amazing You


It's time to share another ColourQ creation, and this week we've got a palette featuring some of the new Stampin' Up In Colours...

As soon as I saw this week's CAS(E) this Sketch, I knew what I wanted to do and this came together pretty quickly...

I used Strawberry Slush and Baked Brown Sugar markers to ink up the flowers and leaves (from Hopeful Thoughts), then added some shading with the BBS marker onto the stamped image. I also added some Dazzling Details to the centre of each flower (which you can't really see in the pic!). The butterflies were die-cut from Calypso Coral card. The card base was made with the Bigz Oval Accent die and Night of Navy cardstock, and I layered a shape cut from Strawberry Slush cardstock with one of the Apothecary Accents dies, then added a couple of candy dots to finish.

Here's the sketch that inspired me...

Here's the recipe:
Stamps: Hopeful Thoughts, Express Yourself
Ink: Night of Navy, Baked Brown Sugar & Strawberry Slush marker
Paper: Whisper White, Strawberry Slush, Night of Navy, Calypso Coral
Accessories: Dazzling Details, Regals candy dots
Tools: Beautiful Wings embosslits die, Oval Accent bigz die, Apothecary Accents framelits, Labels framelits, Itty Bitty banners dies
