cQc #275 ~ Dream Big!

Hi there! Time for a new color palette at the ColourQ. Pretty shades of blue and a splash of bright pink are in order this week. I will admit I purposely worked the colors onto a teeny canvas for this one. I'm not a big fan of bright pink. But it's there and I hope it brings you a little inspiration!



When I saw the inspiration photo, my first thought was to use a portion of PTI's Mehndi Medallion on a tag. After coloring it in I added a snippet of my Pretty Pink Posh Stitched Borders 2 die. A sentiment and a splash of pearls was all this needed. The stamped image has a lot of detail and I thought much more would have made the card too busy.



Be sure to pop over to the ColourQ blog to check out the talents of my teammates! Hope to see you in the gallery this week! Have a great day ~Lisa

This is fantastic. I just love how you used the vivid colors, but only on a small portion of the image. Brilliant idea to put it on a tag. Reminds me how much I love that Mehndi stamp.
