Chalkboard Hooray...


Happy New Year to you all! After a short break the ColourQ is back for 2015 with a lovely new colour combo...

I had some flowers I had coloured with Rich Razzleberry blendabilities and wanted to use them for this challenge. I also had spotted the Fusion challenge this week and that inspired me as well. Here's what I ended up with...

Here's the Fusion inspiration and sketch that I worked with...

I created my own background paper using a new stamp set available in SU's Spring/Summer catalogue which my lovely team members Jess and Claire kindly gave to me just before Christmas (this is my first chance to play with it!).

Here's the recipe:
Stamps: Everything Eleanor, Painted Petals, Hip Hip Hooray kit
Ink: Calypso Coral, Old Olive, Memento black, Versamark, White craft ink, Crumb Cake
Paper: Rich Razzleberry, Naturals Ivory, Crumb Cake, Basic Black, Whisper White
Accessories: pearls, Very Vanilla seam binding, white embossing powder
Tools: Labels framelits

Make sure you check out the beautiful creations by the rest of the Royal Court this week!

Thanks for stopping by...
