CQC #282 - Hello



I really pulled out a lot of things from my stash for this one!  I happened to have both SU blues - both retired - AND the matching markers for them. When I looked at the inspiration photo, the Tipped Tops Die from PTI came to mind.  Then the flowers reminded me of a beautiful set of flowers by Joanna Sheen - Summer Flowers For Pots.  I paper pieced the larger flowers and colored in the small ones. These stamps are very special as they were sent to me by a dear friend in England. The vintage look made me pull out some Tea Die distress ink. I also used yellow Stickles in the centers of the flowers which is hard to see on this pic.  The yellow rhinestone - also from stash that has been sitting forever.  Very pleased with this one.  Thanks of coming over to take a look!  Check out the beautiful creations at Colour Q this week! Have a great weekend.

This is gorgeous! I love the images stamped directly onto the newsprint paper. And the die cute flowers give some wonderful contrast. Thanks for joining us at colourQ!

This is just gorgeous. I can see not only the colors, but really the entire inspiration piece echoed in your card.
