Just Us Girls #411 - Color Week

It's Color Week at Just Us Girls and Maria has chosen some beautiful fall colors for us!


Come see what our Guest Designer, Linda Snodgrass and the rest of the JUGS Design Team have created with this gorgeous colors!


When I saw these colors, I new exactly what set I wanted to use!  Stamps and dies are from Concord & 9th.  Used some Distress Oxide inks in Fossilized Amber and Spiced Marmalade for the background.  Stamped the piece behind the leaf 3 times, staggering for more shadow effect with Distress Oxide Vintage Photo.  The leaf is many layers of colors of inks and watercolor combining as I went to get the burgundy color.  Used Charcoal Brown cardstock from Gina K for the sentiment and card base.

What do these colors inspire you to create?  Play along with us and you could be chosen as our next Chic of the Week, which would then make you eligible for a chance to become our next Guest Designer!  Please limit your entries to 3.

This is gorgeous, Sue. DOX backgrounds are some of my favorites but what you've done with the leaf (that I've been coveting) is breathtaking.
