ColourQ Challenge #120

Tuesday, January 17, 2012



Welcome back to another ColourQ Challenge.  This week's colors are really deep, rich, and beautiful.  They are way out of my comfort zone!  I tried many things before I could use them in a way that works for me!  If these are not colors that you reach for often, challenge yourself, like I did, to make them work for you!  I can't wait to see what you come up with.  This color palette finally pushed me to use Royal Velvet, a color that has been sitting here, unused, for some time.  I went back to Pinterest again this week for some design inspiration.  I loved Gayatri's card.  She used some bold colors on her card and I thought it might work here:)



Thanks for coming by today!




Cardstock: PTI White, Plum Pudding, Royal Velvet
Stamps:PTI Modern Basics
Ink: Ranger Distress Ink
Other: PTI Pinking Shears Die, Rhinestones

    Your card is awesome. I particularly love the stray images (lost for the right word!) and the pinked edge.

  5. These are some of my favorite colors, and I just love what you have done with them. Fortunately, I have Modern Basics coming to me--every time I see a card with it, I was sorry I sold it.
