ColourQ #73


Hello again!  I'm back with another color challenge from the ColourQ!  What a fun inspiration photo this week:


I thought these colors would be easy-peasy, but I admit I struggled with this combo.  I had to substitute for the Brocade and Brilliant Blues, but I think I came pretty close.

I used the large butterfly die from PTI to cut 3 openings in a white cardstock panel, then backed it with the blue and Razzleberry cardstock.  I added three scored lines to the right side of the panel to add interest to the white space.  Next I die cut and stamped three butterflies with Pear Pizzazz ink using PTI's Butterfly Dreams set.  These butterflies are mounted over the larger ones with foam tape.

I adhered the main panel onto a Pear Pizzazz card base.  The sentiment, from WPlus9's Funky Foliage, was stamped in Rich Razzleberry, cut out and mounted with foam tape.

Cardstock:  Stampin' Up! (Pear Pizzazz, Rich Razzleberry), Papertrey Ink (Blueberry Sky, white), Bazzill (North Sea)
Stamps:  Papertrey Ink (Butterfly Dreams), WPlus9 (Funky Foliage)
Ink:  Stampin' Up! (Pear Pizzazz, Rich Razzleberry)
Tools:  Papertrey Ink (butterfly dies), Martha Stewart (Scoring board)

That's all, folks!  The rest of the Royal Court DT made some fantastic samples this week, so be sure to visit the rest of the gals for inspiration.

Thanks for stopping by today!
