ColourQ #89


Good morning!  I hope your week is off to a great start.  It's time to share a new color challenge for the ColourQ!  If you haven't finished up your Father's Day cards, these colors should get you started.


I can always use a few masculine birthday cards in my stash.  For me, that usually means some woodgrain, a bit of distressing, a strong focal image, and a simple sentiment.

I started with a Bravo Burgundy card base topped with Cajun Craze and PTI's Spring Rain panels.  The blue cardstock is debossed with woodgrain and distressed around the edges.

I stamped a sentiment from PTI's Mat Stack 1 Collection in terracotta ink and added gray stamped lines from Faux Ribbon.  I matted the sentiment strip with Basic Gray cardstock before adhering it to the card.

For the focal image, I die cut and stamped the large maple leaf from PTI's Leaf Prints and adhered it with foam dots.

Cardstock:  Stampin' Up! (Bravo Burgundy, Cajun Craze, Basic Gray), Papertrey Ink (Spring Rain, white)
Stamps:  Papertrey Ink (Leaf Prints, Mat Stack 1 Collection, Faux Ribbon)
Ink:  Clearsnap (Terracotta, Antique Pewter)
Tools:  Papertrey Ink (leaf die, woodgrain impression plate), We R Memory Keepers (Corner Chomper)

I hope you'll play along with us at the ColourQ this week!  Have a good one!

Awesome card Christina! I looove the distressed panel with the ripped corner, so clever! Your leaf stamping is spot on too!
