Freshly Coloured


How did we get to Thursday?! This week is going by way too fast. It's been a busy one this week in The Studio but I'm managing to squeeze in a few challenge cards here & there! The card below is just one I squeezed in last night before calling it a night ...

I started out with the current Freshly Made Sketches sketch HERE and seen below. I knew I wanted to use the Gerbera flower for the 'any shape' part of the sketch! I'm loving using this flower at the moment, has anyone else used it in a creation yet? I'd love to see what you've created & how you have used the flowers.

I then needed a colour combo so decided to use the current ColourQ colours HERE & seen below. Now the Brilliant Blue scared me some what! I love the colour blue but such a bright blue is VERY bold & it needed to be used sparingly! So I used it as my card base & matting it with White CS. I did use it for the stamped sentiment from TIME which works really well. 

I'm pretty chuffed with how this one turned out, I thought it was going to be quite iffy when I started out but it came together nicely! Here is a close up ...

I apologise for my Whites not being a White White in the photos I must sort my camera settings out properly. I can hear my brother tutting as I type that I haven't got it set right. 

Well, thats all from me today, I'm sure I will be back tomorrow with more to share. Thanks for stopping by today.
