ColourQ #129

Good morning! 

You know, I really need to work on the colourQ challenges earlier in the week. I always seem to get inspired on Saturday nights or Sunday mornings and cut the deadline so close! I just want the card to be QUEEN worthy ;)

For the challenge I wanted to include flowers because of the inspiration photo, but not just any flower. A special technique and using my favorite flower set: 5th Avenue Floral from Stampin' Up. I tried watercolor but didn't like the results. Might try it again because I don't have the right supplies for that trick. So, in browsing the internet for ideas, I found this website showing how to color on velum.

I could not photograph this card to capture it's real beauty. I hope that you can see the velum with the transparency, the embossed background and well...the hard work!

And the yummie color palate from ColourQ:
