ColourQ #39

I keep missing the deadline for the ColourQ Challenge. So I thought I would get right to it this week. The colors are Brovo Burgundy, Real Red, Brocade Blue, Night of Navy, and White.


I have been looking through the new SU catalog and feeling guilty, as my list gets longer and longer, that I am not using what I already have enough. So I took out two of my SU punches, a big wheel and came up with a way to use them in this challenge. Can you tell what punches I used?

The hot air balloon was made by taking the Very Vintage jumbo wheel, Brovo Burgundy ink on some Real Red and punched out with the Extra-Large Ornament punch. I added half of a Curly Label punch for the basket. Then I added some black cord. The sky was made using Brocade Blue CS in a CB EF called Vine Swirls. I rubbed it with white ink. The clouds were cut with my Cricut and the cartridge called Paper Pups. I don't know were I got the "hi there" stamp. The ribbon is from SU.

I wanted a light color on the inside because the base card is Brovo Burgundy. I even used my SU boarder punch for on this.

There now the guilt is gone. Well almost.
Now were did I put that new cataloge?

Thanks for stopping,

What a cute idea to use your punches to create something other than what they were meant to be.

I didn't even realize those were punches until you pointed it out. So crafty! I agree with you my wish list is getting bigger and my checking account smaller...but I can't buy anything until i get my mess cleaned up!
