colourQ challenge #281

So, today was supposed to be my kiddos first day back at school after being out for snow for the past WEEK, but Mother Nature had other ideas. Holy Cow!! But my precious husband took the kids to work with him for a couple of hours so I could work on this week's colourQ challenge and use my three new stamp sets that FINALLY ARRIVED!! I live in East Tennessee and we are not used to this much winter weather. One week of snow is one thing but as we get into the middle of week 2, we are all getting a big case of cabin fever, especially when there is a possibility of more snow tomorrow night. And FROZEN FOG, too!! What the heck is frozen fog? But I digress . . . I used a new set from Altenew Stamps called Painted Flowers for this card. I can already tell that I am REALLY going to like this set! Because I had to use the same color for the background image and the detail image, I stamped off the background image and used the full-strength color for the detail. I don't have a Peach Parfait ink pad, so I used my marker, which I hate using on polymer stamps. This card is so springy and gives me hope that warmer days are ahead! Several of the cards on the Altenew web site show the details stamped in black, which I really like, so I created the same card with black detailing. Which one do you like better? Thanks for leaving your comments here. I LOVE getting feedback!

So, that is a hard question I really like them both. I think they are two different looks.
