cQc #280 ~ Never Give Up!

Hey there! I'm here today to share my ColourQ card! I had fun with this one trying out the inlaid dies technique. It makes for a quick and easy card with that little bit of wow factor!


I took one look at the bracelet in the inspiration photo and new right away what stamp I would use. The arrows are from Precious Remembrance Shop's DIY stamp set. I curved them on my acrylic block, stamped them in a deep plum ink then clear embossed them. After the coloring was complete I die cut them along with the two smaller circles. The smaller were inlaid and the focal circle popped with foam dots. My sentiment, from the same set, has a little snippet of Wisteria Wonder paper that was die cut with a PPP Stitched Borders 1 die. And finally a sprinkling of PPP 4mm & 6mm Metallic Gold sequins.


Thanks so much for taking a peek! 
Be sure to check out what the amazing ColourQ team has to share. ~Lisa

This is SOOOooo cool! Sometimes I wish I could do clean for this reason alone! It's got such a graphic appeal, but still so much white space. And shiny!!
