Art from the Heart - Birthday Bakery


Well I hope you're not sick of seeing this color combination because I'm stuck on it.  These are the last two cards that I created yesterday for the Colour Q Challenge using Basic Black, So Saffron, Bashful Blue and the new In Color Poppy Parade.  This was one of the Papertrey Ink stamp sets that hopped into my basket while I was at CHA {insert grin}.  It's difficult to see from the photo above but I die cut the jar out of acetate to give it a glossy look and I used Crystal Effects on the paint blobs at the end of the paint brushes to make them look wet {see photo below}.  I'm a little out of practice with using my Copic markers since I haven't been playing with them lately but I had fun coloring this image.

This card was created using Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch for today except I turned the sketch on its side.  I used the Stampin' Up hostess set Birthday Bakery to create this card.
Well I guess that completes my Colour Q Collection of cards for this week!
Have a great Sunday!
