Good morning and welcome! It's Photo Week at JUST US GIRLS! Vicki is your hostess this week and she's found this fabulous photo to draw inspiration from! Here's how I interpreted it:
And the finished inside:
The background was homework from the Online Card Class: Watercolor - Exploring Mediums, day 2. I used a couple Distress Inks and, as Laura Bassen said, made this dreamy watercolor-y background. The birthday, flower, and leaf dies are NBUS, finally put to use. Yay me! The birthday die was cut 3 times and stacked for some dimension. I'm also digging that it extends off both sides of the card a tad. That striped background I had to MacGyver by cutting strips of black card stock and adhering to the card base. I can't believe I have no black and white striped DP! Well, I do, sort of, but it's all aged and distressed, and not white. I'll have to remedy that.
So, what jumps out at you when you look at this picture? The stripes? The yellow flowers? The polka dots? Why not make a project and link it up at Just Us Girls! We'd love to see it! While there, be sure to check out what the other gals, and our September GD, Melissa Dawn Lane, have come up with.
Remember, if you are picked as Chic of the Week for any of our September challenges, you'll be in the running to be our Guest Designer for the month of November! Now go forth and get your craft on! LOL! Have a great day!
