JUST US GIRLS #361 Color Week



Hello and welcome! It's Color Week at JUST US GIRLS, and Nancy is your hostess. She's picked the colors BLACK, RED, and YELLOW for you to play with! Here's the card I made:

I'll admit that I was kind of stumped with these colors, until I saw the second card that Shery Russ made on her post here. (Thanks for the inspiration Shery!) I used an older set of leaf stamps and did the rock and roll technique using red and yellow ink pads. I used my MISTI to get good coverage with the leaves I stamped in black ink, then fussy cut them. I wanted the sentiment to stand out more, so I added a panel of yellow behind it. 


Here's the inside:


I hope you get a chance to play along for this week's color challenge at Just Us Girls! We'd love to see what you create with these colors. For more inspiration, please visit the blogs of my teammates, and our Guest Designer, Kathy Schweinfurth, and leave some bloggy lovin!

  3. Ooh, this is so awesome! I can get behind the idea of red and black, but adding yellow? Must ponder...

  7. We usually see the background in black and white and the focal point in color but you've reversed it, Chris, and I love it. I'll have to give it a try.
