ColourQ #95


Good morning!  The summer is just flying by, don't you think?  But another Tuesday means a new ColourQ challenge, and this one is especially yummy.  Check it out:


I don't have the new In Colors from SU yet, so I subbed Pacific Point for Island Indigo and PTI's Berry Sorbet for Calypso Coral.  I still love how these colors look together!

I used the limited edition set Iconic Images from Papertrey Ink to stamp the bottom of the main panel with aqua medallions.  I added the silhouette with Pacific Point and one of the sentiments from the set in Espresso.

For a pop of coral, I hand cut a tiny flower from cardstock, added a pearl center, and adhered it to the silhouette.  I've seen a number of people use pearls and flowers to decorate stamped silhouettes, and I think it will be fun to play with different embellishments for this stamp.

I rounded one corner of the main panel and added two more pearls, then placed it on a mat of Pacific Point cardstock.  The card base is Early Espresso with a strip of Berry Sorbet to balance the coral flower.  I popped the main panel up on foam dots to give it a little bit of of dimension.

Cardstock:  Stampin' Up! (Early Espresso, Pacific Point), Papertrey Ink (Berry Sorbet, white)
Stamps:  Papertrey Ink (Iconic Images)
Ink:  Stampin' Up! (Pacific Point, Early Espresso), Clearsnap (Seaglass)
Tools:  We R Memory Keepers (Corner Chomper)
Accessories:  Michaels (pearls)

I do hope you'll play with us this week!  And if you don't have the new SU colors, you can still play along with what you have that's close.  We just want to see your creations!

Thanks for your visit today!  Have a happy Tuesday!
