Colour Q #309

G'day folks!

Can it really be Tuesday again? I thought it was Tuesday only yesterday. We've got another set of fun colours for you to play with at Colour Q based on this gorgeous quilt cover from Macy's:

I have to admit I did make a little error with my colours this week. I reached for my Gray Flannel Memento Ink and picked up the black by mistake. Don't you just hate it when that happens? So my Waltzingmouse Funky Feather is meant to be in gray, rather than black but you get the idea! The distressed ink background is a combination of More Mustard and Fired Brick with a little flick of water across the top of it.

This will be my last card for Colour Q (although I may beg Arielle to have me back!) Having a few weeks away made me realise how busy life is at the moment.  I've taken on some more work and decided to cut back a little on other commitments.  What a lovely, talented group of ladies I've had to work with over the past couple of years...make sure you give them some love when you take a look at their creations won't you?

Thanks for popping by,

Claire x


  1. Such a wonderful card--the shapes and colors make me think of a big candle flame, burning bright. Love that shiny heart in the middle. Sorry to see you go, but family comes first. Hope to see you 'round.

  2. I don't miss the Gray Flannel at all Claire, this is so pretty!! I'll miss you on the team, but understand how busy life gets. Hope you can come back soon!!

  3. Stunning, Claire ... those soft, warm background colours are wonderful with that 'very dark grey' (tee hee!) feather ... and the glossy heart is just delicious! Will miss your wonderful inspiration at CQ ... hope life becomes a little calmer for you soon! Hugs, Anita :)

  4. An amazing card, as usual Claire. It's rotten how life gets in the way of fun stuff, isn't it? I'll miss seeing you around colourQ but I hope that you still have time to wow us with your cards every other day of the week. Or at least a few days a week!

  5. Oh this is so stunning Claire!!! Your watercoloring is lovely!! Hope you come back to Colour Q....love to see your cards for inspiration!!!

  6. This is so pretty Claire (gorgeous watercolor!)~Will miss seeing your work at the Q, but it's smart to let go when life's too busy. Take care~

  7. I love this Claire! What gorgeous watercoloring. I love how clean the card it and not busy at all. Just wonderful. TFS.


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