Colour Q 134 Challenge

Afternoon

For some time now I have wanted to play along with the Colour Q Challenges for quite some time but it has just never worked out.  After a bit of tidying in the studio last night, I decided to see when this week's challenge closed, and as it turned out, I still had time to play along.

This is the colour combo for this week


And this is what I came up with


I used my new Apothocary Art set and the coordinating Labels Collection framelit.  I used my blender pen to colour the flowers using Calyspo Coral and Pumpkin Pie inks, the main image and sentiment are stamped using Bravo Burgandy - I think this is the 2nd time I've used it in 6 years.  The sentiment is from a PTI Anniversary set - Round and Round.  The background has been stamped using PTI's Background Basics - Tin Types using Pool Party ink.

I know it's really simple but I really like  how it has turned out.  And now I have realised that if I can make it down to the studio on a Saturday night, I can play along with Colour Q more often - yay!

Thanks for visiting and I hope you are enjoying your weekend.
