Hi there! I am sooooooo excited to show you this fabulous color palette we have for you at ColourQ this week! :)
This is right up my alley; blues and purples!
I love the feminine feel, too. I made my card using my new goodies from Lil' Inker, I can tell you , I will be using this set ALOT. Extremely versatile! And I love the big banner die (running down the center of the card there). I stamped and die cut the dotted piece, and then colored the dots in with a chalk marker. I used a variety of older papers, those die-cut photo mats are really cool to cut up and use on cards, I find I use them far more that way than actually on scrapbook pages.
These colors reminded me of something. When I was pregnant with Evan, I was **certain** I was having a girl (well, we all know how that turned out, not so much!) ;) Anyway, at the time, I was very sick (had hyperemesis) and I spent a lot of time browsing baby bedding online, dreaming up a nursery, it kept me occupied! I fell in love with this gorgeous baby girl bedding, it was limited stock at that time, so I'm sure I couldn't find it now to show you. Anyway, it was really pretty and feminine, but no pink, you know how light pink is really not my favorite. ;) This card really reminds me of it. It had white polka dots, I remember that, and some subtle patterns, different shades of blue and purple. And fast-forward to the happy ending of the story, that I had a precious redheaded baby boy, 3rd of 3 boys, and he had a circus room. And this is a picture of the adorable bedding he had. ;)
Well, that is all for me today! What do these colors remind YOU of? Hope you'll make something to play with us at ColourQ this week! :)
