Happy long weekend everyone! I just love them! Today the Just Us Girls team has a fab color challenge for you. We did something different this week and had our Guest Designer, Carla Suto, choose the colors! And I love the colors she picked! She based her colors on the Graphic 45 collection Once Upon a Springtime. I love Graphic 45 papers and while I didn't have this collection, I did have the Le Romantique collection (which I received in a gift exchange from Bonnie Sharp) that had the same colors. So here's what I did.I chose a sketch from My Favorite Things Wednesday Stamp Club and a stamp set I've had for a while and haven't used from Verve called Blue Skies. I distressed the piece of Aqua Mist with tea dye distress ink to tone it down a bit. The beautiful butterfly is a Spellbinder die that I cut with Vintage Cream cardstock, then sponged with Cameo Coral and Cool Caribbean inks. Then I distressed it a bit more with the tea dye ink and added star dust stickles for that sparkle I love! The half circle was cut with a Coluzzle. Remember that thing? My nesties were too small so I had to pull that out. Fun little tool!
Stop by the JUGs blog to see the beautiful creations form the team and our Guest Designer, Carla Suto! Make sure to leave them some love!
Thanks for stopping by and have a great long weekend too! :-)
