ColourQ #151

Tuesday, August 21, 2012


Good Morning!  It's Tuesday and that means a new ColourQ challenge for you to try.  Arielle has really put me outside my comfort zone with these colors.  A true challenge!  I was really wondering how I was going to make these colors work.  I have to say, though, that the end result feels very much like me.

One of my nephews turns 5 in November and this is perfect for him!

So if at first you think these colors are not for you.....give them a try. 
 You might surprise yourself too!


Cardtsock: PTI White, Hawaiian Shores
Stamps: PTI Boy Basics Simple Circles , Out of This World
Ink: PTI Hawaiian Shores, Orange Zest, Smokey Shadow, Soft Stone
Dies: Simple Circles, By The Numbers
