Just Us Girls Color Challenge
The Just Us Girls challenge blog has a fabulous color challenge for you this week. I think it's fabulous because I was the one who chose the colors! Pumpkin Pie, Bashful Blue, and Really Rust. The JUGs DT really made these colors look amazing! Make sure you check out their cards on the JUGs blog. This is what I did with them.I got this image recently at my LSS. It's from Art Gone Wild and it's called Make a Wish. I just love the little mice holding that wishbone. The wishbone reminds me of something my mother did with a wishbone for my wedding. She had saved one from the Thanksgiving before my wedding and wrapped it in satin ribbon which she attached to my ring bearer's pillow. The rings were placed on the wishbone. Now you have to know that my mom is not crafty at all, so for her to do something like this was such a surprise! She told me she had one on her pillow at her wedding too, although I don't know who did that for her.
After I colored the image and cut and embossed the image with nesties, I swirled some pumpkin pie ink around the image while it was still in the nestie. It was just too white, and this technique really highlites the image. I did the same with the sentiment. I followed the current Mojo Monday sketch but flipped it....lots of layers on this one!
I hope you can try this color challenge this week. Check out the JUGs blog for the details, but if you post to an online gallery, use the key word JUGS8. You can also post a direct link to your card to Mr. Linky on the JUGs blog.
