Hi all! It's Word Week at Just Us Girls and Carol chose CITRUS as our word.
I started by stamping this background stamp with the middle section taken out. It was stamped in Versamark and embossed in white embossing powder. Then I used distress oxide inks in citrus colors and sponged it over the embossed pattern (I masked off the circle). I don't have (or at least I couldn't find) any citrus images, but I did find a set from a now defunct stamp store Paper Makeup Stamps. I stamped the lemon in distress oxide squeezed lemonade ink and quickly embossed it in clear embossing powder. I stamped the sentiment from the same set. I added crystals, rounded the bottom corners, and added the main panel and lemon with fun foam.
You can see more from the JUGs design team and our July guest, Julia Aston, on the JUGs blog.
Thanks for stopping by!
