cQc #353 ~ You Make Me Smile!

Hi friends! We have a new palette for you at ColourQ and a fun geometric modern pillow as inspiration! 



This was the perfect opportunity to use the newly released Stitched Hexagon dies from Pretty Pink Posh. I used one to make a shaker filled with 4mm & 6mm Sparkling Clear Sequins, Sparkling Clear Seed Beads and 4mm Onyx Sequins. I trimmed another down a bit and colored over the aqua paper with a black Tombow Brush marker. I love the way this looks! The aqua stitching still shows up, nifty huh!! I stamped the arrow border from Precious Remembrance Shop's Journey Stamp Set then added my sentiment (Inkadinkado) over them. 



My hubby said this one looks "mechanical".  He's so cute!! 
And I just noticed the shaker part is crocked, must fix that!
Have a great day ~Lisa

Love your use of the new Hexagon dies and your tip about colouring the bottom diecut to maintain the aqua coloured stitching is fabulous - TFS! A very pretty font on the sentiment you chose, too.
