ColourQ 131

I'm playing along this week with the beautiful colors of ColourQ 131.   It's funny how everything looks different in the daylight.  Last night when I was making these, I had a hard time finding a close match for peach parfait, and I ended up making two cards using both VersaMagic pink grapefruit and persimmon. 

When I photographed the cards this morning, it's the yellow that looks the most 'off.'  In my photos it looks almost orange, which it honestly isn't.  Regardless, I really like this color combination.  It's so fresh and fun.  I used the large image from PTI Mehndi medallion to stamp a background.  The sentiment is from PTI think big favorites #12.



Beautiful Inspiration:

Thanks for visiting today!

Love the design Ann, have to choose the second as my fave because I have a weak spot for portrait cards :0)
The colours look fine to me :0)

Very pretty, Ann, both cards. I had all the colors except peach parfait and the peachy ones I thought were close, I didn't like with the BB, so I'm just taking a pass on this one. However different your cards look IRL (and I know what you mean), they look beautiful on my screen and I love the layouts!

Oh how I love that the same supplies can make such different cards! Love those medallions, and the buttons on the first :)

I always have colour drama. It's so darn frustrating! Love both your layouts though. I have never inked up my Mehndi Medallions before but I might have to after seeing these. Have a lovely weekend!
