Colour Q #88

WOW a ColourQ courtier winner!!!  Thanks Arielle


This is such a great colour combination and very much looked forward to having a play with them, but the creative gods were not on my side for this one.  It took a whole afternoon for it to come to anywhere near finished (I won't  say come together) and even then it doesn't feel right.


I was trying for a wallpaper effect, which initially worked quite well, but then if I was going to put a chair in front of it the proportions were all wrong.  So everything got chopped down (bad idea) and in frustration I added the flowers.


So I don't think I have done Arielle's great colour combination justice, but I will have a go at this palette again.

It's a rainy cold (for us) day in Brisbane and it's my Mother-in-law's birthday lunch.  We settled on a piece of Swarowski crystal for her which I think she will like.  Hoping to get a bit of time at the Craft Expo before that while the rest of my family go to the Lifeline Book Fest (millions of donated books resold)

  2. I love this card, very cute. But do give this colour combination another go, because it is an awesome one! I even sent it off to Manda to have a go. Unfortunately these colours are still on my wishlist. . . I'll keep my eyes peeled at the craft show for you. :-)

  4. Oh, but it's a gorgeous card! So much beautiful pattern and texture. It really does look like an artwork mounted on a wall! Love those flower centers!
