JUGS Challenge #247 - Photo Inspiration

Marisa has a very trendy photo for our inspiration this week.  Love the colors and the elements.

This is also, our last week with our current Guest Designer, Shirley-Bee!  Shirley has been a super GD with all of her wonderful creations for the 5 weeks of June!  Thanks so much, Shirley.

I was inspired by the colors and the chevron wall.  Flowers from Gina K were stamped with Versamark on watercolor paper and heat embossed with white ep, then watercolored with Distress Inks. It's hard to see in the photo, but the gray shading around the flowers is more even than it looks, only the darker areas showed up in the photo.  Added some photo corners and dots of black Viva Decor Paper Pen.

This is the first card I made using rub ons and turquoise, white and black Viva Decor Paper Pens.  The only stamping is the sentiment which is punched out of the background and placed in like a puzzle piece.

Just a reminder:  If you win Chic of the Week in any of our June challenges, you are in the running to be chosen as our Guest Designer for the month of August.

How to play: Please copy and use our graphic on your post. You need to upload your new project [no back dating please] for this week's challenge to your online blog or to a public photo gallery. Leave a link that goes directly to your project in the Linky Tools form at the bottom of this post. If you upload to online galleries, please use the keyword or tag, JUGS247.  After you post to Linky Tools you may also leave a comment here.  We ♥ love hearing what you think of our challenges!

Deadline to be considered for the "Chic of the Week" is 9:00 PM EST on Thursday, July 3rd. The Linky Tools form will close at that time.  Our "Chic of the Week", will be announced the following Friday morning. Thanks for playing along.

We love to see your creations, so please play along with us!

Both are really pretty and so reflective of the inspiration photo and full of very special details. All the DT cards in this challenge are lovely - I had a fun time entering this one.
