Colour Q & MoJo Monday with Verve!


Of all the weeks to finally decide to play along with Arielle's Colour Q Challenge again, I can't believe I chose this week!  I mean, just LOOK at this color combination! What was she thinking?!  :)


Really, any three of these colors together wouldn't be too bad, but I struggled to get the fourth color in there.  Like it or not, I used the exact colors specified and perservered . . .


I had some help jumpstarting my mojo by using the MoJo Monday Sketch 183.  And I used one of my favorite stamp sets by VERVE - Beautiful You.   To tone down the colors, I used an assortment of designer paper from my stash, the Very Vintage wheel from Stampin' Up, and my favorite sponge and distressing ink - Versafine Vintage Sepia.    Oh, and I can't forget to mention the crocheted flower from Debbie Fisher at The Paper Garden to embellish!    ♥





and the inside...

Let me know what you think, ok?  I *love* hearing from all of you! Good or bad.  Well, keep it mostly good.  ha ha  : )    Really, what do you think of this color combination?  Are you going to give it a try?  

Another week is flying by . .  Enjoy!

p.s.  don't forget to check out all the stamps I have for sale!   Links on the top right.  Thank U.

You had me laughing this morning, Pam! I always struggle with the fourth color, so I know exactly what you mean about this combo. But you handled it beautifully with those lovely patterned papers and a fabulous sketch. The distressing looks wonderful, too!
