Hey friends! It's the fifth Saturday of August (and the last day of August, boo-hoo) and it's Wild Card Week at Just Us Girls. Sue wants us to splash something on our cards for this challenge. Easy enough!
I went to a stamp and scrap show last weekend here in Buffalo, NY and bought lots of new stuff with my friend Cheryl. This thinlits die from Tim Holtz was one of them. I kept it simple and cased the picture on the package. I die cut the die and leaves first, then sponged distress oxide ink behind them with the Taylored Expressions brushes to get the soft colors. For the challenge, I splashed some of the new Lawn Fawn liquid stardust and watered down peeled paint distress oxide on the panel. The sentiment was stamped in C. Pooler black jack ink. I wanted a softer color so I used this instead of black. I also added crystals to finish it off and some of the liquid stardust on the berries in the center of the flower. This panel is mounted on craft foam for dimension. First card for the holidays done!
You can see more from the JUGs design team and Tristan Dawes, our August guest, on the JUGs blog. This is her last challenge with us for the month and I'd like to thank her for being such an awesome guest.
Thanks for stopping by!
