ColourQ #130


Welcome back!  It's time for a new ColourQ challenge!  How about a spring-inspired color palette to brighten your day?


I kept my card super simple using a set I'd yet to ink up, PTI's Flower Fusion #9.  I lined up the flowers in a row, stamping one in Melon Mambo and the rest in Daffodil Delight.  The centers were stamped off once onto scrap paper to yield a lighter color.

I promised you'd see more of the sentiments from A Muse Studio's Hand Scripted.  The "you" is a separate stamp from the words "are special", but it was incredibly easy to line them up.

I added a Hawaiian Shores mat with a pinked edge at the top and a dotted satin bow.

Cardstock:  Papertrey Ink (Hawaiian Shores, White)
Stamps:  Papertrey Ink (Flower Fusion #9), A Muse Studio (Hand Scripted)
Ink:  Stampin' Up! (Daffodil Delight, Melon Mambo, Certainly Celery), Memento (Tuxedo Black)
Tools:  Fiskars (pinking shears)
Accessories:  Papertrey Ink (ribbon)

Don't forget that you can visit the rest of the ColourQ DT anytime by clicking the links to their blogs over on my sidebar.  They are one talented group!

Thanks for stopping by for a visit!  Have a fantastic day!
