ColourQ Challenge #52

The Queen is back!!

This is the ColourQ's one year anniversary week! How awesome is that?!?! And now I finally have enough organized and unpacked in my Stamping Studio to give it a go this week. It feels soooooo good to finally be able to play again! This week's challenge was to use the above layout with any previous ColourQ Color Combo of your choice. I used CQC #3 - Halloween colors.

And here is my card for this week's consideration:
Recipe:
Stamps: Fang-tastic
Paper: Pumpkin Pie, Certainly Celery, Pale Plum, Apricot Appeal, Vanilla, Black
Ink: Black, Staz-On black, Pumpkin Pie, Certainly Celery, Early Espresso
Accessories: white gel pen, purple rhinestones, watercolor pencils, blender pen, silver shimmer mist, Cuttlebug web folder, sponges, bat & pumpkin brads, scalloped ribbon border punch, 2 1/2" circle punch, SU label punch, bitty bat punch, SU buttons, black thread, popdots, mini glue dots

Image colored with watercolor pencils and a blender pen.

I mixed rubbing alcohol with silver shimmer paint, to make a shimmer mist on my web embossed background paper.

This was FUN!!! Keeping my fingers crossed on winning the contest this week (there are prizes!!!) and being named a Colour Queen, maybe! Want to see everyone else's creations? Go ahead and click HERE, and say hello to the ColourQ Girls!!

Beautiful, Jeannie. I'm so glad to see you posting your work again. I have missed your lovely art. Getting settled takes patience, that's for sure. I hope you can recoup your $400 from the eBay person (are you sure it was a guy?) I've heard people getting shafted by Craig's List, but this is the first I've heard about on eBay.
