JUST US GIRLS #357 - Color Week


Hello crafty peeps and welcome! It's a new week and a new challenge starting at JUST US GIRLS! Lisa is your hostess for Color Week, and she's picked Aqua, Kraft, and White as your colors to play with. You are also welcome to use any neutrals. Here's what I came up with:


 and the inside:

I've been crushing on the 'coloring on kraft' look lately, and I thought I'd try it out. I scored this background stamp earlier this year at Tuesday Morning, and bonus, it came with an embossing folder! I stamped it 3 or 4 times using my MISTI in white ink, so I got a nice bright image, then heat set it. Then I just filled in the flowers and flourishes using Prisma Color pencils. I ran it through the embossing folder, matted it with aqua paper, and added rhinestones, because, shiny! A simple sentiment finishes it.

I hope you find some time to play along with our color challenge at Just Us Girls! For more inspiration, please check out the blogs of my teammates and our August Guest Designer, Colleen Foelker, and leave them some bloggy love! Remember, that if you are picked as Chic of the Week for any of our August challenges, you'll be in the running to be our Guest Designer for the month of October! Thanks for visiting, and I hope you have a great day!

adding pinterest script 3. Changing the Position of the Pin it! button The cool thing about this code is that you have some freedom over where the Pinterest button for Blogger will go over the image. Take a look at the code that you just copied and pasted into the HTML for the word 'center'.
