colourQ challenge #186

 I LOVE this week's colourQ challenge! The colors are lovely together, plus I was able to use my new chevron dies from PTI, which I think I'm going to get a lot of use out of. I have seen variations of this card using long, skinny stamps and I think the look is very striking & clean, but a bit challenging for me. The chevron die-cuts were very easy to line up and I was able to successfully even them out with my scissors. I didn't have Lucky Limeade so I used Kiwi Kiss cardstock instead, and my focal point is stamped in Tim Holtz Picked Raspberries Distress Ink, which is a fantastic bright pink. Hope you'll play along with the colourQ gang this week. Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!
