I'm back again as the July Guest Designer for Just Us Girls!
This week is Color Week and here is the challenge!
I often have trouble creating when I am told to use certain colors (!?) it can mess with my mojo! But this week was a breeze because I just got out the same stamps I used last week on my JUGS card since they are perfect for these colors!
I cut a panel of water color paper, masked an area to create my section of 'ocean' and pounced the panel onto my craft mat where I had rubbed Ranger Distress Cracked Pistachio and then spritzed with water. When I had achieved the coverage I wanted, I removed the mask and dried the panel with my heat tool. To define the edges better, I drew lines with my 01 Black Micron Pen.
Then I got out the PTI Salt Air: Fauna and Salt Air: Flora stamps and dies. (The stamps seem to be back in the shop but the dies are still back ordered). I selected what fauna and flora I wanted and stamped them onto the die cuts using Pale Peony and Aqua Mist PTI Inks. I layered them over the 'ocean' strip with foam dots, stamped the Psalm verse from an older Sweet N Sassy set called Beauty by the Sea and added 3 enamel dots.
I layered the panel to a slightly larger Hawaiian Shores panel and then to a white card base.
So being told what colors to use wasn't so terrible for me this time!
I hope everyone is having a wonderful summer - getting outdoors and enjoying yourself - maybe even getting to the beach?! Looking at this card makes me want to go there!
So please join us over at Just Us Girls showing us your creation using aqua, pink and white! You have until 9 pm EST July 26th to link up your card. I'll be back next Saturday with my last creation as Guest Designer for JUGS. What a fun month I've been having creating along this talented team!
