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!!!

         Hugs, ~Silke~

This is beautiful! I really like the way you've let the flower shine and kept the foliage neutral - so clever! I love seeing how you were inspired by the challenge photo at Inspired By.

This is so beautiful Silke! I do so love vellum and vellum leaves are the best! I especially love how you embossed them and put them alongside the stamped ones.

Stunning card. That flower is amazing--one of my favorites, and the vellum is such a classy touch.
