ColourQ #66

Hi Stamping Friends!
Another new year means all new challenges at the ColourQ.  As usual, Arielle has picked out a fabulous photo full of fun colors.

I opted to use Baja Breeze instead of Soft Sky, for two reasons... I couldn't find a piece of DSP with Soft Sky and I LOVE the new Springtime Vintage DSP out of the Occasions Mini catalog, so I just had to use it!!

The card base is Basic Black that is layered with Baja Breeze that was stamped with the En Francais background stamp.  The Baja DSP is from the Springtime Vintage pack and the So Saffron DSP is from the Designer Series pack.  The fluer-de-lis style stamp is from the Friends 24/7 set.  That panel was also stamped with the En Francais stamp with Versamark ink.  The butterfly is from the Great Friend set and the sentiment comes from the Oval All set.  Apparently, I'm kind of in a vintage mode.  All the cards I've stamped lately have been sponged and spritzed with Soft Suede.  That just screams vintage.

I almost forgot!  This sketch comes from the Sketch Frenzy Friday blog.  This is sketch SFF123110.  Go check it out!

I've also been in a digi scrapping mode latley.  I've never really sat down and played with My Digital Studio, but now that I have, I have scrapping fever bad!!  I just want to sit at my computer all day and scrap!  So tomorrow, I will have a MDS page using these ColourQ colors.  So make sure you stop back by.

And, make sure you go check out the ColourQ blog and see the amazing cards the other design team members have created.  And while you're at it, play along with us!  We would love to see what you are stamping in the new year.

Thanks for stopping by!
Happy Stamping!

Very pretty Krystal!! Love those colors, so I'm glad you didn't have SS dsp. I think I still have the ink pad and a tiny bit of CS that color.
