ColourQ 100!!!!


Hi all! VERY exciting fun over at colourQ today, as it is our ONE HUNDREDTH challenge! I hope you will come play! For this commemorative week, we are using a sketch from clean&simple stamping and ANY past colourQ palette! They are all on the sidebar at the colourQ blog. I used palette 72. 


Here's my page....


I did a lot more stamping on this page than I have as of late! I used the birthday themed builder wheels from Stampin' Up! as the base of my page. I stamped them in Versamark ink and used chalk over them. An old technique I hadn't pulled out in awhile, and I like the way it turned out!!! For the title block I background stamped with the woodgrain stamp before stamping the "look who's" with some cute (but old!!) acrylic stamps by Sassafrass Lass. The chipboard "8" I had was bright turquoise & wasn't going to fly with the colors, so I covered it in DP to get the color I wanted. I layered the 8 over a Tim Holtz journaling tag and accented it with an old chipboard heart from my stash. The acrylic stars are accented with a red felt brad that I covered myself and some blue snap/eyelet things. At the bottom of the page, I found this half a pocket in my stash, all made up from when I did this card waaaaay back in January! I thought it would be a cute accent for this page. I stapled a ticket with the date to the LL hand corner of the pic. For the banner I used a jumbo stamp wheel with stars on it, which I inked up with the inkpad since I didn't have a cartridge that color, and trimmed down to size. Used a fun BasicGrey birthday sticker in the middle of the banner to accent. Here's some detailed shots for ya....

I hope you like my page! And I hope that YOU will come over to colourQ and pair your fave of the last 99 palettes with this fun sketch to play with us on our 100th week! :) 

Have a stellar day!! xoxo, Noelle
