Just Us Girls #95 - Wild Card Challenge

Happy Saturday everyone!  I'm hosting the Just Us Girls Wild Card challenge this week, which is to use fabric on your project...and using ribbon only does not count!  You can make fabric flowers, stamp on it, etc.  Whatever your little heart desires.  I stamped on muslin and colored the image with copics.

I used an image from a Flourishes stamp set called From the Desk of.  I stamped it using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then just used copic markers to color it in.  You have to use a light touch when coloring because it could bleed.  I accented the image with a Sakura glitter pen, which you can't see in the picture.  To fringe the sides of the muslin, I used a Tim Holtz retractable scratcher tool.  This was one of the few times that I colored my image first, then found paper to match.  I usually do the opposite!  I found this paper by Basic Grey called Eva matched nicely.  The sketch is from this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch.

I hope you can join us this week.  The girls have done a great job once again.  You can stop by their blogs and the JUGs blog to see their creations.  This week is Christina MacLaren's last challenge as our Featured Designer and I'd like to thank her for joining us this month!

Thanks for stopping by today!  Hope to see you playing along with Just Us Girls!

Lisa, the coloring on the fabric is so soft and subtle. I love it!

Lisa, this is beautiful! I tried Copics on fabric once and it did not turn out so well! I love the texture that it gives to your focal panel.

Thanks so much for having me on the JUGS Team this month! You gals are the best!
