cQc #359 ~ You're the Best!

Hello sweet bloggy friends! We have a new palette up at ColourQ and a perfectly sweet inspiration photo!



I started with a watercolored (smooshed!) panel. Next came a stamped trio of Altenew Painted Flowers. I combined PTI's Simply Chartreuse ink and a golden yellow Tombow Brush marker to get my Summer Starfruit yellowy green for the leaves. Turned out pretty good, don'tcha think! A typewriter was trimmed from some patterned paper in my stash. The fun black speckled paper was die cut with a Pretty Pink Posh Scallop Borders die. The blue check paper in the background is an old scrap I had. I think it's by Lasting Impressions. And last but not least, I added a few PPP Clear Droplets (4mm & 6mm).


ColourQ is part of the Altenew challenge hop!

I hope you enjoy your day. We finally have a break in the heat, thank goodness!! Sweet P and I will be enjoying a walk today and maybe blowing a few bubbles too!! ~Lisa

I'm drooling over this card, Lisa. I love the mix of papers and the layers but most of all I'm take with the slight smooshing and those gorgeous painted flowers.

Oh Lisa, this is absolutely WONDERFUL!!! LOVE it!

Lindsey said...

So beautiful! Would you believe I have the Painted Flowers set, but have never inked it up. The shame. This card makes me want to get it out right this minute. :)

Greta said...

Oh my word--this is fabulous, Lisa! Gorgeous & modern--love it!

Claire said...

You seem to be able to use the Painted Flowers set so much better than I can Lisa - I never quite nail it like you have done here. Love how you've used it as a background to the typewriter. The crisp stamping of the typewriter goes really well with the softer blooms!
