I'm a bit late posting my ColourQ card tonight - busy day with work and a Stampin' Up party tonight (thanks for hosting Lyn!). Here are this week's colours...
So pretty!! Well I had to make substitutions for Peach Parfait and Apricot Appeal so I used Crisp Cantaloupe and So Saffron. I was inspired by the two-tone leaves on the box in the inspiration pic so I played around with creating a similar look on my card...
I achieved the shaded look by inking the stamp up with the lighter colour, then sponging the darker colour on the edges directly onto the stamp. The flower at the bottom (from Simple Stems) was inked with So Saffron the sponged with Crisp Cantaloupe and a touch of Pumpkin Pie.
I played along with the Friday Mashup challenge this week...
As well as using the sketch, the second part of the challenge was to use spritzing or splattering so I used Gorgeous Grunge to stamp the centre oval as well as the background paper with Gold Encore ink.
Here's the recipe:
Stamps: Secret Garden, Simple Stems, Happy Watercolour
Ink: Crisp Cantaloupe, So Saffron, Summer Starfruit, Always Artichoke, Gold Encore
Paper: Sweet Sorbet dsp, Always Artichoke, Whisper White, Naturals White
Tools: Ovals framelits, Labels framelits, Secret Garden framelits, square lattice embossing folder
Make sure you check out the gorgeous creations from the rest of the Royal Court this week!
