Just Us Girls #528 - Color Week

Hello!  This week over at Just Us Girls we have a color palette that Vicky chose that I love!
I chose this bold floral set from The Stamp Market to work with today.  I stamped the flowers and leaves in the challenge colors around the perimeter of the panel.  I recently saw a video by Kristina Werner where after she stamped the images (or rather I think she used a stencil for the images), she blended some of the same inks over it to soften the look.  I decided to try that and liked the effect I got.  I stamped this sentiment, and wasn't really happy with it at first, so I created another card.

I created the card in the same manner, however I think I got a little heavy handed with blending the inks around the stamped images.  I do like the sentiment better on this one.  I finished both cards with yellow crystals and star dust stickles in the flower centers.
I hope I don't need to send the get well card to anyone anytime soon.  I hope everyone is well and heeding the precautions from the doctors and scientists.
You can see more from the JUGs design team and our March guest on the JUGs blog.

Nice solid stamping on both. These are awesome cards.

I absolutely love the boldness of the first card Lisa and am intrigued at how you've changed the feel of the card by switching out the sentiments. What a fabulous stamp set too! *gets out wish list*

Both these cards are gorgeous Lisa. Bold bright colours and big sentiments work beautifully together here.

Both are beautiful! I love the effect you got by blending the ink. Great choice of images for this, too, they are perfect for our color challenge.

The inking around the flowers make them glow, Lisa, and both sentiments look wonderful.
