Colour Q Challenge

This is my second post today!  Woohoo!  I'm on a roll!  I was looking through some challenges this morning, and this one from Colour Q really caught my eye.

Great color combo, huh?  I thought so!  I didn't have the Starfruit ink or the Midnight Muse, but they are close matched to Crushed Curry and Blue Bayou, which is what I ended up using.  I use PTI's Irresistibly Ikat stamp set.  Love the graphic designs in this set.  I created my own background using the four challenge colors.  For the image, I stamped the flower part in the Crushed Curry ink, then again in the Cool Caribbean ink for the leaves and stem.  I rounded the corners cause there seemed to be so much white on top and it just softened it a bit.  

I used this sketch from Sweet Sunday Sketches once again.  Great sketch!


Thanks for stopping by again!  I'll be back tomorrow with the My Time Made Easy Year in Review post.  See you then!
