colourQ challenge #347

ColourQ challenge 347 has the most amazing inspiration image, I love the bold outlines. Take a look!

I enjoyed working with the challenge colours, especially the dark chocolate and grey leaves. 
For the embossing, I prepared the die cuts with the EK Success antistatic powder tool before I stamped the layers. I then double stamped the image with black Versafine Ink, followed by a Versamark layer with Hero Arts clear embossing powder over the top. It gives such a lovely finish. Yay once again for the Misti!!
The orange flower is coloured with a Copic.

Flower is Verve Joyful Blooms
Layered leaves, 'thank' and rounded, stitched rectangle (Stax) from MFT.

Happy creating everyone. I am sure it adds years to your life.

Wow, what a fabulous card! Your layers are so eye catching - the leaves, the flowers, plus the addition of twine, ribbon, and washi make this a very interesting card to look at! Thanks for playing along with us at colourQ!
