Paper: Color Q Challenge #90

June 26, 2011

It’s been a couple of weeks since I played along in a new challenge, so I thought I’d do something new by joining in on the current Color Q Challenge!

Now we all know that I love a patriotic color scheme, so this challenge is right up my alley!

Yesterday, I had the change to pull out some scrap paper and play with my stamps – something that I seldom do. Usually I sit down with a sketch or plan in mind. This time, I just tried out different sets that hadn’t been inked yet.

While playing with the PTI 2010 Anniversary Set – Botanical Silhouettes…I realized that the dandelion image looks a heck of a lot like fireworks!!!! I don’t know about you…but this is the kind of thing that makes me so excited!!!

I added a little glitter and some Stickles to the images to make them extra fireworky!

That’s it for today, friends! Have a great day!

Supplies:
Stamps: PTI (Botanical Silhouettes, Make A Wish)
Paper: PTI (Enchanted Evening, Spring Rain, white)
Ink: Jenni Bowlin (Cough Syrup, Spice Tin); Stampin Up (Tempting Turquoise); Ranger Archival Ink Jet Black
Other: Spring rain satin ribbon, 2mm adhesive rhinestones, Stickles, Sparkle N Sprinkle Sparking Snow Glitter

  1. Swoon! I love the dandelion head as fireworks! And I’m with you – I love a patriotic color scheme. And here’s another Amber card in my Pinterest. šŸ˜€

  2. Sometimes even fireworks stamps don’t look like fireworks… but this looks amazing!! And I love the sort of trails you added to make them even more realistic.

    I seriously gotta get crafting, you’re *so* kicking my butt!

  3. LOVE LOVE LOVE it! So cool that you used that floral image for fireworks–that’s what I call using your noodle! Multi-purposing! And thanks for playing with the CQC colors this week!

  4. I love seeing the flower from Botanical Silhouettes as the fireworks. That came to mind immediately when I saw it, but I have not tried it yet. Fabulous job on you creation. I love the sparkle that you added!
