ColourQ134 and CAS187

DSCF0392

Happy Tuesday, peeps!  Another exciting color challenge for the ColourQ today----Arielle really made me put on my creative thinking cap with this one:

cqc134

This definitely has an Asian theme to it, and I do not have anything evenly remotely Asian!  But I do have Pocket Silhouettes, which sadly is retiring at the end of May, so I pulled them out and followed the Clean and Simple Fall to Layout 187:

and here’s what I came up with:

CQC134-LeAnne

Although I had my doubts about these colors when I began, I ended up really liking this card!!!  That’s what challenges are for, right?  Each stamped circle was backed with a matching mat, and the two outer ones were embossed with the Elegant Lines embossing folder and enhanced with a little silver doohickey.  And don’t you just love that sentiment?  Sweet!  I hope you can find something fun, pretty and creative to do with these colors too!  Share your project with us over at the ColourQ blog and be sure to check out what the other designers did as well.  I am amazed each week at the different styles they come up with!  And as always, if you have any questions, shoot me an email!

Dana took these pictures of Cassidy trying to eat a dandelion puff:

Cassidy didn't like the dandelion-001No, she’s NOT laughing!!! LOL!  Good thing she had that water bottle to wash it down!

Your card came out beautifully! Love that you framed some circles but left the bkgrnd-matching ones singular. And WAY too funny about Cassidy- great job catching those photos! :)

I think Cassidy just found something to put on her 'don't like' list! Your card is perfect for both challenges, I have to say I love your "doohickey's"!

LeAnne I love all those great circles on the blue background. Fabulous card and I am sure dandelion puffs are good for a growing girl. LOL

Beautiful job with these tricky colors, LeAnne! I love those pocket silhouettes and the embossed circles you added. It's been so much fun working with you on the Royal Court!

I think you really captured the feel of the picture & the colors beautifully. The eel like fish would have really thrown me off. I love the layout that you used. I would have never thought of the burgundy with the other 3 colors, but it really does look pretty all together. Really like how you used the little circles of the embossing folder to capture the look of the coral.

GORGEOUS!! I love the colors and the images...the layout! Well done!

Jen said...

Nice job with those tricky colors! I've been eyeballing that sketch too afraid to give it a go, but you've inspired me. Maybe I'll have to see what I can come up with...

What would we do without those doohickeys! giggle
Love how your card came together - great colors and you totally nailed the design. Fun pics of Ms C trying a new food group - she is such a delight!

I love the colors together too! Love how you've used this sweet set too. I've always thought it was pretty!

Linda said...

Oh I guess dandelion puffs aren't so good. LOL Don't you feed that little girl? LOL
Love your beautiful card. I really am liking pool party. I used it on one of the Christmas cards I made this week.

You've done a great job with these colours LeAnne and the sentiment is fab. I like the added embossing and brads.
