Happy Tuesday and welcome to my own personal installment of the new palette at colourQ and the new layout at Seize the Sketch. I have no problem admitting that the colors, inspired by this bracelet, were really hard for me to combine! The sketch, designed by Mona Pendleton, is a great one with lots of layers and room for embellishment and ended up working perfectly with the colors.
This card is kind of growing on me, but at first when I finished it all I could think is "what a hot mess this is!" These colors, together, are not something I would normally put together but they really do work and after getting a look at the cards from the colourQ design team I saw how beautifully they can be combined!
And I have another teeny weeny confession to make. The bottom layer (with the polka dots) is Concord Crush and I had an old pack of SU buttons that I thought were the same color so I happily attached it to my card. It wasn't until it was stuck fast that I realized the button is actually Night of Navy. But honestly in real life the color of the cardstock and the button look identical! Lucky me!
I hope you have a chance to play along with colourQ or Seize the Sketch (or both)! We all love to see you in the gallery!
Thanks for stopping by!
