ColourQ #103

Tuesday, September 20, 2011

Hello!  Beautiful new colors to challenge you this week from the ColourQ!!
I love this inspiration photo.  It inspired me to get out my watercolors and play around.  While I really liked the results I got, the colors (when dry) didn't really match this week's colors.  I'll save that piece and use it on another project soon:) 

Instead I came up with this card for this week's challenge.  I have decided to finally accept that summer is ending and I'm trying to embrace the coming season:)
I hope you'll join us this week.  I'd love to see what you come up with!

To create a mat for your die cut shapes like I did with the Fillable Frames, lay your die onto the paper and trace.  Since the die itself is slightly larger than the die cut it creates a perfect little border when layered together!  I learned this little tip from Sarah.
Thanks for coming by!
