ColourQ Challenge #330

 Today's card is another one for the ColourQ challenge  as I was so inspired last week.  Here is this weeks inspiration picture.

I love the beautiful, bright colours in this photo but I was unsure of whether you have to use just some of the colours, or all, so I opted for all - as all the wonderful examples by the talented team over there seemed to use all - it would also have been difficult to choose!  This is my card.

I started by making a card base.  Then I cut a strip of Tempting Turquoise Card stock and stamped an image repeatedly in Tempting Turquoise ink to make a self patterned strip which I adhered to the left hand side of the card.

Next, I cut a smaller panel out of white card stock for my focal piece.  Then I stamped my images  and sentiment on another piece of white card stock and fussy cut them all out.

I mounted all my images on to the focal panel, some were adhered with glue and others with foam tape for dimension.

I finished the whole thing by mounting the panel to the front of the card with fun foam, mounted the sentiment on foam tape and finished the whole thing with some matching gems.

Supplies used:

Inks: SU - Tempting Turquoise, Daffodil Delight, Real Red & Gumball Green
Stamps: SSS - Friendship Messages & W&W - In Bloom: Lola's Bouquet

Thank you all so much for popping by.  Have a truly wonderful day!  Hazel xx
