So Happy ColourQ #230

 Love these colours at Colour Q , absolutely electric! (The shoes are pretty amazing too.)
I've had a night of creating (my husband is away for the weekend) and it is amazing when you get on a roll, you just can't stop. Only fatigue and my aching back will make me call it quits.

I am going to wait till morning to photograph my card, but I did enjoy playing with these colours. I've had to substitute Coastal Cabana for Cool Caribbean. The ladies in my stamp class last night also love Summer Starfruit, and yet when we first saw it, everyone was a bit half-hearted. I've reminded them, it will be a retiring In-color very shortly, but I can see myself using this combo again before long.

Happy Watercolor was my choice of stamp for this card (again) and just a greeting and a single poppy were stamped onto the die cut circle. I ended up stamping with Gold ink the stamp that is a little like confetti onto the Crumb Cake strip,(very hard to see) and then some on the lighter die cut circle too. I had misted a series of circle shapes with a pale blue wash earlier in the evening, but again, it is so subtle, you can't really see that in photos.        A second circle was cut in Summer Starfruit using one of the Starburst Framelit Dies, still out from my last card. Summer Starfruit looks a lot like gold foil too. A piece of the lovely silky Summer Starfruit ribbon knotted around the Crumb Cake card and a scattering of loose sequins are the finishing touch.

Cheerio, happy stamping
