ColourQ Irises...

Hi there,

It's time for another great colour combo at the ColourQ and this week it's a perfect one for spring...

I thought the the purple/yellow combination would be perfect for flowers - either violets or irises - so I pulled out Backyard Basics which has a beautiful flower (looks like an iris to me but I could be wrong - I'm not exactly an expert on flowers!)...

As you can see, there's only a touch of Daffodil Delight, but sometimes that's all you need! The flower image was stamped on Naturals White with stazon then coloured with a blender pen and ink and die-cut with the matching framelit. It was layered on a Whisper White oval, then a shape cut with one of the Apothecary Accents framelits using Elegant Eggplant card. I couldn't help adding a big fat bow and some big fat pearls to finish!

I used the layout from Seize the Sketch to help with this one...

Here's the recipe:
Stamps: Backyard Basics
Ink: Stazon, Pear Pizzazz, Elegant Eggplant, Daffodil Delight
Paper: Fresh Prints dsp, Crumb Cake, Elegant Eggplant, Whisper White, Naturals Ivory
Accessories: Large pearls, Pear Pizzazz chevron ribbon
Tools: Backyard Basics framelits, Apothecary Accents framelits, Ovals framelits

Make sure you check out the FAB projects from the rest of the Royal Court this week!

Thanks for stopping by...
