Colour Q Challenged

Hello again,

I tried to have a go at the latest Colour Q challenge a couple of days ago but really struggled with it and gave up. Not to be beaten I had another bash today and combined it with this week's Retro Sketch:

The nearest I had to turquoise was some 6x6 papers from Studio Calico - not quite the bright turquoise in the pic but I think I can get away with it. The strawberry stamp is Waltzingmouse and I've added some dimensional magic just to make it a bit juicier. I'd liked to have fit a sentiment on the front but I just didn't have the room so 'thank you berry much' is stamped on the inside instead.

There seem to be a lot of fruity cards out there at the moment as the theme for the Simon Says Stamp challenge this week is 'Summer Fruits.' So, I'm going to link up with that fruity challenge too!

Thanks for stopping,



  1. Love this big, bold strawberry! Great texture. Thanks for playing along with us in the Summer Fruits Challenge over at the Simon Says Stamp Challenge Blog this week!

  2. Oh wow this is brilliant!!! Love your juicy strawberry! It truly looks good enough to eat! Awesome card!

  3. Fabulous summery card, Claire, love all the embossing and the strawberry is wonderful! Thanks for playing with us this week at the colourQ.

  4. I'm glad you saw it through, Claire, because this card is a textural and juicy masterpiece!! What you've done with the DM is, indeed, magical!


Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a comment - they really make my day!
