Just Us Girls #665 - Color Week

 The new challenge over at Just Us Girls is our Color Week challenge, and Lisa E. has chosen pink, kraft and white.  

Here I go with stencils again!  I've never tried Distress Oxide inks on darker card stocks before and when I was thinking about this challenge, I knew I wanted to try it.  I chose this Altenew layered stencil and used Kitsch Flamingo for the first layer and Picked Raspberry for the second layer.  (The colors look orchid, but really are pinks.)  I think I should have used a sentiment that was just a die, not a stamped sentiment but this was sitting on my desk and I thought it would make a nice Valentine card.  I stacked that sentiment and added crystals.

You can see more from the JUGs design team and our new guest for February, Karen Walker, on the JUGs blog.  Welcome Karen!

It does make a nice Valentine, a pretty one too! I've never tried stenciling on anything but white, you've inspired me to give it a go!

That stenciling is so impressive on the kraft, Lisa.

Beautiful stenciling and love your choice of the Distress Oxides on this beauty! Those inks worked beautifully on the kraft.

Running late with comments this week; apologies. Love how you've showcased this dahlia stencil and I think the die cut sentiment works wonderfully. I'm sure I have this stencil; need to find it and give it a play.
