The color palette this week at colourQ has got a blast from the past! It's been a long time since I've seen the words "Brocade Blue" anywhere, but here they are!
I actually found a bit of Brocade Blue cardstock in my stash, but it turns out that I didn't need it. Instead I inked up a flower stamp with a marker.
During my travels around blogland I often come across cards that use a black color scheme for flower stems or leaves. I've always wanted to give that a try because the results are always dramatic and eye-catching. So I took the opportunity presented by this color challenge to try it out. I like it, but I wish I had stamped some more leaves or something to take over a bit more of the white space. In any event, the layout for this card comes from the latest sketch at Create With Connie and Mary.
Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you have a chance to head on over to colourQ. While you're there check out the inspiration from the design team then play along with us!
