Welcome back, friends! It's ColourQ time again! Yippee!
Check out this week's cool color palette:
I love these colors together, but I struggled in getting it to come together. The turquoise was really giving me fits! Hopefully you'll have an easier time of it.
Since receiving PTI's Anniversary set, Pretty Peonies, I've been wanting to play with the big "happy" sentiment that's included. I stamped it in Wisteria Wonder, then masked the letter "a" and stamped the rectangular frame behind it in Rich Razzleberry.
The small "birthday" sentiment and butterflies are also included in this set. I stamped one of the butterflies directly in the bottom corner and cut another one out to place on top of the frame.
I added the punched turquoise dots next to the sentiment, then decided they looked out of place with no other turquoise accents. So I punched scalloped borders to place at the top and bottom of the white panel. I'm not totally happy with the balance of colors, but I do like the layout.
I gave the white panel some texture using the Linen & Canvas impression plate before popping it up on a Pool Party card base.
