Have a Splendid Day - ColourQ Challenge #118




This unique colour pallet from ColourQ #118 intrigued me and and compelled me to try since I find working with that many colours difficult. I wanted to see what I could come up with. This card happens to be my second try! I had to toss my first one. So this is what my second attempt looks like.



Whoops! I just realized that the URL to the blog is typed incorrectly.
Part of the difficulty stems from the fact that I don't have required colours in ink, but one. Plus I don't have copics, and my watercolour pencils are limited in colours. So that left me with paper and a small Spellbinder library. I think the these colours require a more CAS approach rather than my preferred style. Maybe I'll try it again because something does't quite sit right with me. Oh, and if you think it might be the sentiment at a angle, I did do that on purpose. Before I attached everything, I always lay the basic elements down and rearrange them to see what looks best. I did try the sentiment the usual way. It didn't make any difference. Maybe my mojo is a little off today. ;(

Thank you for stopping by. Hope your mojo is working and you're happily crafting away.

Sabrina I think you are worrying unnecessarily - this is a beautifully balanced card and I love how you have interpreted the colours.

"Worrying unnecessarily" is her middle name! ;) Love it as is, Mom! Perhaps it is the "weight" of the flower that's kind of throwing things off? Maybe a pearl/button? This color combo would look excellent with the CAS style as well... I love your CAS work so I hope you have time to whip one up!

Your design is lovely, Sabrina! Maybe you have just looked at it too long, we all do that. Thanks for joining us this week at the ColourQ for the first challenge of 2012.

I love this just the way it is...the diecuts are lovely, and I have that ribbon, sitting unused for a long time! Thanks for playing with us this week!
