Fun Colors

The ColourQ colors caught my eye this week and since I don't have any events to prepare for, I was free to play.  This is what I came up with.

I love these bright Springy colors!

Aren't they beautiful?  I love that basket!

I stamped the little flowers from the Easy Events set with Jet Black StazOn and colored them with SU markers. I used the Tempting Turquoise Stampin' Pastel for the background and sponged with the Nesties die still on the circle.

I've adhered Certainly Celery, Daffodil Delight and Tempting Turquoise grosgrain ribbon on a scrap of DSP for the strip behind the design.  The butterflies are from the Kindness Matters set, colored with SU Markers and cut out.  The blue one is Tempting Turquoise but looks more blue in this photo.

I used the layout from retrosketches.  It's a new sketch challenge hosted by Arielle who also hosts colourQ.  This is the sketch this week.

All supplies are Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted
