Good morning, friends!
Today I have a very special ColourQ challenge to share with you! This is the 100th challenge at the ColourQ blog, so we're teaming up this week with clean&simple stamping for twice the fun. This week's challenge is to use Fall-to-Layout #155 with your favorite past ColourQ combo. You can see all of the previous color palettes on one handy-dandy page HERE, or use the link on the ColourQ blog home page.
Ready to get crafty? I chose cQc #44 for this challenge, because I needed to make a back-to-school card and thought the primary colors would work well.
I started out by making a chalkboard background, stamping lines from PTI's Scrapbook Series: Library Ledger in white onto a black card base.
I debossed a Bashful Blue cardstock panel with the Book Print impression plate, then added a Saffron border punched with a notebook edge and a strip of Poppy Parade cardstock.
The apple stamp was a $1 find at Michaels over a year ago. I stamped it once in red, once in black, then cut out the center of the black apple to layer on top of the red. I gave it a layer of Glossy Accents for shine.
The sentiment and star are from PTI's Tag-its #6, and I added a bit of sparkle to the star with a clear Spica glitter pen.
