CQC359 BEAUTIFUL DAY

Hello everyone!!!

We are inviting you to join us for a very special blog hop!


Altenew invited the COLOUR Q to be part of The Ultimate Challenge Blog Hop, along with many other fabulous challenge blogs!


The new Colour Q colors will hopefully make it easier  to get your creative juices flowing!



Here are this weeks CQC359 colors.....and the new INSPIRED BY ALL THE LITTLE THINGS #23 challenge helped my creative juices as well.....






















My flower image was inked in the SU Primrose Petal Ink. First I stamped it on a side paper and then on the matching Beautiful Day Flower Die. To achieve the color contrast I took the flower bloom outline stamp and inked it again in the SU Primrose Petal Ink. To finish off the flower image I took the SU Summer Starfruit Ink and a Blender Pen and gently colored in the pollen dust...voila!  

As always, please stop by the COLOUR Q BLOG to view all of the entries!!!

Thank you for stopping by....wishing you a fabulous week!!!

Unfortunately I don't have a new card for the COLOUR Q BLOG today! It's been a busy volleyball weekend and we came home later than expected.

I'll will take a break until August or until I've set up my new craft area! Maybe I'll be able to squeeze in a card here and there...but no promises ;) !!!

Anyways, here are this weeks CQC345 colors....
