ColourQ #112


Happy ColourQ day, friends!  Are you ready for a new challenge?  Check out these rich autumn tones:


I saw a kiosk in the mall last week that was selling triptych artwork, which inspired me to stamp an image onto three panels.  I chose Hero Arts' Tall Wheat rubber stamp, which I stamped in white using my Stamp-a-ma-jig to get it lined up just right.  I popped the panels up on foam adhesive on an Espresso card base, added a sentiment from WPlus9's Season of Thanks on a white cardstock strip, and embellished it with a chocolate button.  Quick and simple, but it packs a punch because of the wonderful color palette.

Cardstock:  Stampin' Up! (Early Espresso, Cherry Cobbler, Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight), Papertrey Ink (white)
Stamps:  Hero Arts (Tall Wheat), WPlus9 Design Studio (Season of Thanks)
Ink:  Stampin' Up! (Early Espresso), Clearsnap (Frost White)
Accessories:  Papertrey Ink (button), DMC floss

I hope you'll play along with the challenge this week!  Don't forget to leave some love for the rest of the Royal Court DT while you're at it.

Thanks for visiting!  Have a great Tuesday!
