Hi all! Hope you had a great weekend. I am way behind on blog stuff, so if you commented, I am so sorry, I will be back around in blogland very soon! I was kept busy caring for my recovering-from-surgery hubby, a sick 12 year old, and dealing with the 2 other kids and the house. Ah, the glamorous life of a mom, I tell you! ;)
Thank YOU from the bottom of *my* heart for your kind words about me joining the Cat Pack, it's a really exciting new venture for me, I am still pinching myself!
Speaking of which, I will be back in an hour with the NEW (and improved!) TCP Tuesday Challenge!
Today we have a new ColourQ challenge! Here is the palette:
I don't mind tellin' ya.... this one was really really hard for me! I ended up doing a lot of white, and I think I must have ripped this apart at least three times, what a mess.
Getting those washi tape lines just so was part of my frustration.... I kept thinking they were even, then I'd go to lay down my nesties and realize, they weren't! Fortunately, washi tape peels off pretty easily!
I sponged the edges of that main white cardstock panel with the Pink Pirouette ink on a sponge. I also used some pink pastel to add some shading to the white nestie after I cut it and stamped it.
I made the mat Tangerine and the card base is actually Melon Mambo, I didn't have any Pink Passion. I stamped the stamp also in Melon Mambo ink, colored the heart with an orange marker, and added some Diamond Stickles to the heart, and a few other little spots on the stamped image.
The only Cherry Cobbler came in on the card by me matting the stamped nestie with a larger one cut from the Cherry Cobbler color.
I hope you can come play with us at the ColourQ this week! I would love to see what you can come up with! :)
