This week at the ColourQ we have a soft and pretty colour combo inspired by this lovely patchwork quilt...
Now I didn't have most of these colours as Peach Parfait, Kiwi Kiss and Lovely Lilac have all retired and I generally tend to use just current product, so I used Crisp Cantaloupe and Wisteria Wonder instead of Peach Parfait and Lovely Lilac, and I made my own version of Kiwi Kiss using a mixture of Old Olive and Summer Starfruit reinkers!
When I saw the lavender/green combination I thought of the beautiful Best of Flowers set - thankfully the wonderful Claire who lives round the corner from me was kind enough to lend me hers so I could play! I used my 'kiwi' ink mixture to colour the leaves and stem with a blender pen (I also coloured some Modern Medley paper with the ink then cut into banners using the Itty Bitty Banner framelits) and coloured the flower with Wisteria Wonder with a touch of Marina Mist. I added a bunch of faux stitching with a Basic Grey marker and my favourite embellishments: ribbon and candy dots!
I used this week's Paper Players sketch for my layout...
