Hello crafty friends! It's Color Week and Ina's turn as hostess at JUST US GIRLS! She's picked Mustard, Turquoise, and Hot Pink as your colors to play with. Neutrals are welcome, but please use only these three main colors in your project. I decided to go all mixed media on my project:
I had a lot of help with this, as I totally CASED this tag by Corrie Herriman. (Thank you Corrie for the inspiration!) I used what I had on hand, embossing paste and stencil, Gesso, Distress Inks. Oh, the colors on the tag were very vibrant, that is before I fixated them with a layer of Matte Mod Podge, then they became more subtle. Oh well, at least the DIs don't come off at all. (wink) I basically followed how she made her tag, just using different stamps. I even doodled around the hexagon and bee stamps using a white Gelly Roll pen! I colored the creepy guy with Spectrum Noir markers using the three challenge colors. The sentiment was stamped and fussy cut. I went around the edges with the three DIs I used for the tag, before adhering them with foam tape. I cut a bit of hot pink ribbon with pinking shears and added for the final touch.
So how do these colors inspire you? Why not make something and link up at Just Us Girls so we can see it? While there, please check out the blogs of my teammies and our Guest Designer, Cornelia, and leave them some bloggy lovin! Remember, that if you are picked as Chic of the Week for any of our June challenges, you'll be in the running to be our Guest Designer for the month of August! Have fun and thanks for visiting!
