Colour Q #161

Good evening!

Nothing like pushing one in close to the wire. In my typical fashion, I made a card for the Colour Q color challenge DAYS ago, but here I am posting it right before I go to bed on the night of the deadline! I almost forgot about it! (Which would be even MORE typical.)

Since I made my card after I had mailed out my Halloween cards, I decided to ink up a new stamp and try something different.

I used PaperTrey Ink's Happy Harlequin set.  I couldn't resist buying this set because I loved my Happy Hexagons set I purchased several months ago. Technically, it might be categorized as a somewhat-frivolous purchase since I really could do the same things with the Hexagon set... Not like it's that different. But in the words of my Papaw(-in-law), "I didn't need it. But I wanted it."

So I made sure that I'm putting it to good use already!

I "lifted" my card sketch idea from something I've seen recently on Pinterest. (I'm a recently converted junkie. TONS of inspiration out there - It's like a continuous free magazine subscription!)
The harlequin shapes are stamped in Sunset, Autumn Terracota, and Creme Brulee CTMH colors. Matted in black cardstock with a black accent piece on top. Sentiment is from Paper Smooches. (Oh yeah. That was another one. I've gotten stamp happy lately. I'd give my recent behavior a "yellow light" --- but it's SO fun.) The twine is CTMH Autumn Terracota also. Black Bitty Brads are used on the top corner.
Thank you for visiting my blog - please come back often and please check out Colour Q for tons of inspiring artwork!
