The ColourQ, that is!!
I just found another color challenge blog, and it caught my eye with this sophisticated color palette. I made my card on Saturday, and thought I had until midnight Sunday to upload with a chance to be "Queen." Well, I was wrong! Noon was the deadline...oh well. Not a biggie, I had fun making my card, and that is what matters!
The colors to be used are daffodil delight, kiwi kiss (retired) old olive and early espresso and whisper white...inspired by this table cloth. Many of the DT samples had flowers, so I decided to try something different. My nephew likes to skateboard, so I think he will like this!
I brayered ink on to my presto pattern specialty paper. Sadly my daffodil ink pad is MIA, so I used summer sun instead, then added kiwi and olive, with an extra sponging of olive in the corner. I stamped the Extreme Skateboarder with craft chocolate chip ink, and used clear embossing powder and my heat tool to emboss. The sentiment is from On Your Birthday, and I sponged it with kiwi and summer sun. The larger circle and the espresso layers are embossed with the square lattice folder...the circle is sponged with espresso ink. I punched out one modern label, then cut it in half, attaching with gold brads to opposite corners.
Looks like he's jumping off a cliff! Careful, James!!!
