Hello Poppy...


It's time for another fab ColourQ combo, and this week we've got this pretty one to play with...

I wanted to use the fabulous Happy Watercolour set from the Spring/Summer catalogue (coming on the 28th of Jan!) as well as some new papers from the same catty. This is what I ended up with...

Now, it's a bit unusual for me to leave the lovely flower image uncoloured (cos I love to colour!) but when I stamped it and placed it on the rest of the pieces it looked so striking I decided to leave it that way - always good to step outside of your usual style eh?! There's a couple of other new bits and pieces on this (oh how I love the fact that demonstrators can preorder goodies... hee!). The buttons are new, as well as the sentiment from a set called Perfect Pennants. There's also a sneaky peek of a fabulous new punch coming called the Angled Tag Topper punch - sooo clever!

Here's the recipe:
Stamps: Hello Watercolour, Perfect Pennants
Ink: Pool Party, Stazon black, Basic Grey
Paper: Fresh Prints dsp, Whisper White, Basic Grey, Pool Party
Accessories: Island Indigo chevron ribbon, Silver buttons
Tools: Angled Tag Topper punch, Banners framelits

I used the Deconstructed Sketch for my layout...

Make sure you check out what the rest of the Royal Court have created this week - they always have a fabulous array of inspiration for you!

I also wanted to give you a heads-up that two of the designers on the Create with Connie and Mary Spring Edition have blog candy and beautiful projects on their blogs today - make sure you stop by and visit Melissa Davies and Nicole Tugrul and leave them some love... you may even win some goodies!

And don't forget that during Preview Week you can sign up for the Spring Edition for only $24.95! For more details head over to Create with Connie and Mary where you can find out more and register for this fabulous collection of tutorials and inspiration.

Thanks for stopping by today!
