Colour Q Meets Mojo Monday!

by Joanne James24. February 2014 20:29

Good evening blog readers! I managed to grab a few hours this afternoon to catch up on some crafting (a reward to myself for getting some of my admin out of the way this morning!) and I made a card using both this week's 'tall and skinny' Mojo Monday sketch and the colours over at Colour Q:

I don't often make 'tall and skinny' cards and historically was always put off by not having the correct sized envelope, but now I have my Envelope Punch Board, irregular envelope sizes don't phase me at all! As for the Colour Q challenge, well you may remember when I made this card a few weeks ago that I confessed I had two ink pads in my stash that I had owned for more than 12 months and never broke the cellophane wrapper on; one of them was Garden Green, that I used on the previous card; the other - Always Artichoke. So when I saw this colour challenge, I just had to have a go! Now Peach Parfait and Apricot Appeal are retired SU colours; I did have an old inkpad and some Peach Parfait cardstock, which I've used, but no Apricot Appeal, so I substituted with Pumpkin Pie instead. Here is my card:

I followed the background layering of the sketch with solid colour cardstock and overlaid with a slim panel of Pumpkin Pie Brights DSP. Instead of a circle as my focal point, I decided to use a tag punched with my Scalloped Tag Topper Punch. I cut my cardstock slightly wider than the 2" groove in order that it could accommodate my corner flower stamp from the 'You're So Grateful' stamp set. I stamped the image in black Stazon  and used my Aquapainter to colour in the design. When the image had dried, I went around the inside edge of the image with the co-ordinating colour marker pen to give it added definition. I have one small confession, which is that I used a small piece of Old Olive ribbon to finish off my tag as it was the closest match I had to Always Artichoke. And finally - I made a co-ordinating envelope!

Hope you like today's card; I'll be back tomorrow with a very special punch art creation, so do check back to see what I've made. Until then, happy stampin'!

Thanks Sylvia - this is an unusual colour combo for me, but a perfect opportunity to ink up a new stamp!
