colourQ 312

Tuesday, October 13, 2015

The new palette at colourQ will surely make you think of Halloween.  But I decided to have a little fun with the colors and make a card with some leaves - autumn style.



The Sketch at As You See It was a good jumping off point for me and since the challenge this week at Time Out Challenges is autumn I decided I'd try my hand at adapting these colors for a bit of an autumn themed card.  An old favorite stamp set,  French Foliage, provided the leaves and the Patio Stone circle in the background was stamped with Basic Gray, stamping off once so the color would be a bit muted.  I love how this looks, especially with the black embossing paste design down the side.


The colourQ design team has made some beautiful cards for you to see this week so be sure to check them out.  I hope to see you in the gallery!

Thanks for stopping by!

Supplies:
Stamps:  French Foliage (SU); Patio Stone (Designs by Ryn); Hashtags (Tim Holtz)
Paper:  Basic Black, Whisper White (SU)
Ink:  Basic Gray, Tangerine Tango, Pumpkin Pie (SU); Onyx Black (Versafine)
Accessories:  Diagonal Strip stencil (Simon Says Stamp); black embossing paste (Wendy Vecchi); enamel dots (My Mind's Eye)

I adore that stone circle stamp, it looks like embossing paste, what a cool stamp. And such wonderful stamping of the leaves. This is such a refreshing take on these colours and so good to see you use them for a non Halloween card. Thanks for joining us at TO, hope to see you again soon x
