cQc #133 ~Adore!

Hello! Now I didn't plan it this way, but I must admit that the sentiment on my card reflects my feelings for my collection of Impression Obsession stamps perfectly. I do adore them, they just stamp so darn beautifully! My favorites are those by Alesa Baker. When I first saw the colors for the ColourQ challenge I was a bit stumped. But after going through my vast collection of 6x6 papers I found my jumping off point...rusty, dusty durango polka dots sigh...they make me feel warm and fuzzy!! Pair them with a couple of those favorite stamps and I was off and running!

All of my papers are from MME: Mabel, Hattie and Sunshine collections. I stamped my wispy vine and forget me nots Impression Obsession stamps with black ink and colored the flowers with chalk. All of the dies used are PTI: rick rack border, limitless layers and tiny tags (they're ba-ack Marie!!!). And I couldn't resist throwing in some mini pompom trim.

That's it for me friends, thanks for taking a peek into my little corner of the world ~Lisa

Fantastic card Lisa, love that patterned paper you chose. Are those polka dots I see?? Great focal point and using the balloon die as a hanging tag is genius!

Lisa, you achieved perfection with this card! Your choice of papers are fabulous! Your stamped leaves are beautiful and your tag...so clever!!!!!

I reeeeeally like this card, Lisa! It's going in my "inspiration file." I so admire how you were able to work with the ColourQ colors and not make an Autumn/Halloween card! I myself sat at my desk last night with these colors in front of me and couldn't make *anything* work. I started to get grumpy and made myself set it aside! :-D Using the black and white sparingly made the other colors work here, and I love the pom pom trim and how the black vines peek from behind! Great!

I don't really know Impression Obsession so I'll be off to have a look and will have you to blame if I land up spending money! I love those little flowers on your central piece! Gorgeous colours too!
