Hi friends! Vicki chose a really cool photo for the Just Us Girls Photo Week challenge.
I went literal with the challenge. I started by blending some distress oxide inks in various shades of blue to create the background. I tried to leave some lighter areas like in the photo and splattered it with white paint. I remembered I had this balloon cutting plate from Taylored Expressions that was perfect! I die cut it three times. I colored one of them with copic markers and cut the balloons from the other two just so I had the frames remaining. I stacked them onto the first one for dimension. I then die cut the sentiment three times and stacked it too. Crystals and shimmer spritz were added for sparkle.
You can see more from the JUGs design team on the JUGs blog.
This is our June Guest Designer, Fran Wing's, last challenge with us this month. I'd like to thank her for being such a great guest and hope we see her in the gallery in the future!
