cQc #345 ~ I Love You!

Hello, hello! Are you ready for a new ColourQ challenge? We have a great palette this week that's perfect for those Father's Day cards you need to get ready. I was inspired by not only the colors, but the inspiration photo too!


I pulled out one of my PTI heart dies for this one. I cut several papers so that I could mimic the wooden heart in the photo. My XOXO and I love you sentiments are from Precious Remembrance Shop's Love Coupon stamp set. They're stamped in Versa Mark then heat embossed with Hero Arts white embossing powder. I searched high and low for a color resembling Bordering Blue and finally found an envelope in my stash ~ phew!! Some twine and a bracket border from MFT helped to ground my design. I'm not a teal person, but I'm okay with it here!


We love it when you play along at ColourQ!
Can't wait to see how you are inspired this week.
Have a good one ~Lisa
