ColourQ 139 Challenge

This week's ColourQ challenge was an odd group of colors for me.  I would have never tried these colors together so I was glad for a "challenging" challenge.  Last Friday the Flourishes DT used the Gerbera Daisies stamp set and they inspired me to use it as well.  I found purple gerbera daisies on the internet and they were very close to Rich Razzleberry!
I kept this card simple and didn't use any die cuts, embossing folders or fancy embellishments.  I did do my favorite technique - heat embossing - for the image and sentiment.


  • Stamps: Flourishes - Gerber Daisies, Tag Lines
  • Ink: Versafine - Vintage Sepia
  • Paper: Neenah Natural White, SU! Night of Navy, Rich Razzleberry, DSP
  • Other: Copics, Bow Easy, SU! ribbon, Perfect Layers, clear EP, heat gun

What a different color combo... I never would have thought to use this stamp.... But you did and it makes for a fab card with a really soothing color combo. Really nice, great coloring!
