ColourQ 158

Happy Tuesday! I'm here today with this week's ColourQ challenge. Arielle has given us some really fun Halloween colors. I have to confess though, I had a really hard time with these colors. The purple kept throwing me off. It took me two days of trying all kinds of different stamps and layouts before I finally came up with this one. Phew...:)

You can't see it in the picture, but I cut the spider's body out and attached it with one of my dots. Before I attached it I put some Glossy Accent on it. In person it looks great. I wish it would have shown up in the picture.

Here is this week's inspiration photo and colors. Doesn't it look like the sorting hat from Harry Potter? Kinda makes me want to read them again. In fact my daughter is reading them right now...this is only her 5th time.

I hope you will join us this week at the ColourQ. I think we're going to see a lot of Halloween cards. I look forward to seeing your amazing creations.

See you soon,
Deanna Jean
