Hi everyone! The challenge this week over at Just Us Girls is our word challenge, and Nancy chose SEA. So many great things you can do with this word!
I tried to do a scene with a lighthouse, but I'm just not good at creating scenes. So I pulled out this flamingo stamp set and pretty much followed the picture on the package for my layout. I used the Distress Oxide inks for the water and sky. The flamingo is a layering stamp and is stamped with three different pink inks. I die cut water with a hills die and the frame with a wonky stitches die. I added clear sequins and also spritzed the completed panel with shimmer spritz. The main panel is mounted on desert storm paper for more of a beach look. My friends and I have a girls' night planned in a few weeks at one of our friend's house, so I thought I'd take this with a gift for her.
You can see more from the JUGs design team and our new guest for April, Laurie Unger, on the JUGs blog.
