Hello, Friend - ColourQ #150

Yay, me! I got a card done for the current ColourQ Challenge (see the image at the bottom of this post). I interpreted the color scheme as PTI Spring Moss, Lemon Tart, Pure Poppy and Hawaiian Shores. I really wanted to use that cute phone from Heart 2 Heart #4. It's so cute and I hadn't inked it up yet! I stamped it on the die-cut in Pure Poppy, and also stamped the center dial and cut it out with my teeniest Spellbinder's circle nestie die.


In keeping with the phone theme, I added texture to the green panel with the By The Numbers impression plate, after inking it with Versamark to give the impression a bit more oomph. The "hello" is cut with the Block Alphabet dies, and the word "friend" is from Flutterby Friend


How about that phone cord? I used the little curly-border from Tiny Treats: Birthday, after carefully curving it on the acrylic block, and with a Post-It Note mask in place so it wouldn't stick out from under the phone. :) The phone and handset are then popped up on dimensional adhesive. I also used the Square Limitless Layer dies, and an MFT die for the bottom border.


Here is the ColorQ inspiration image:


Thanks for stopping by!
