Just Us Girls #412 - Photo Week

Hello everyone!  This week at Just Us Girls, Ina chose this great photo for our photo week challenge.
Here's what I saw in the photo and how it translates into my card.  I chose this jungle stencil and used two Distress Oxide inks with it.  While it was still wet, I covered it with clear embossing powder.  It really intensified the colors.  Then I die cut the bird and colored it with Zig markers to mimic the parrot in the photo.  The bird is placed on a white border on which I stamped the sentiment, heart, and sequins.
You can see more from the JUGs design team and our September guest on the JUGs blog.
Thanks for stopping by!

Fabulous, Lisa. That stenciled background was a great way to get the feel and the coloring on your little bird is perfect.

What a creative take on the challenge. Love your sponged background over the stencil, and that sweet little birdie. So pretty.

Great design here, and I love that you used the clear embossing powder over the Oxides. I have never thought of that and will be trying it. Wonderful take on the challenge photo. Love that little colorful bird too!
