.... I've made this card for this week's Colour Q - cQc100 challenge. It's a special occasion - 100 weeks of challenges - but I've only been playing since about cQc60 - or thereabouts!! The team have joined up with Clean & Simple Stamping - FTL155 - and the challenge this week is to use any of the previous 100 Colour Q combinations with the fabulous sketch.
I decided to have a look at some of the really early colour combinations to see what I could find - I wanted to find a strong colour scheme for a masculine card. I came across cQc17 - a great range of colours and I colour matched the Taken with Teal with Tempting Turquoise.
I started with a sheet of Black Magic Core-dination card with a pale blue reverse. I cut a mat for the card with the pale blue uppermost. I cut a smaller piece of card which I ran through my Cuttlebug, then sanded to reveal the pale blue. I attached this to the card base, added a bit of white card above and then covered the join with a black ribbon. I found a nice clean and simple birthday greeting which I stamped in red. I stamped the circles in red and turquoise and attached them to the card. Clean, simple - just right for a guy card.
Stamps: Stampin' Up! - Circle Circus; Waltzingmouse - Free Spirit - Sentiments
Inks: Stampin' Up! - Real Red, Tempting Turquoise
Accessories: Cuttlebug folder - Diamond Plate, Stampin' Up! - circle punches (various), ribbon and card from stash
It's my Father's birthday next week and I've made this card for him. We've not seen each other for about 20 years - it's a long and complicated story, but after the death of my sister in March, I've decided it's time for us to get back in touch. I did some things that hurt my Father, but I think it's time to move on, so I hope that he gets this card and decides to let bygones be bygones! I can only try! Anyway, it's in the post now! See you all later.
