Just Us Girls #502 - Photo Week

It's Photo Week at Just Us Girls and Bobby has chosen a beautiful photo filled with inspiration.

Once again, we have Tristan Dawes with us as our August Guest Designer.  Check out the JUGS blog to see how Tristan and the rest of the amazing Design Team were inspired by this Photo.

I was inspired by the tinted Mason jar with the flowers.  I used Gina K's Buds and Vases and watercolored on a Bristol card base.  Stamped the flowers, masked them and then stamped the stems.  Masked the stems and stamped the jar, removed the stems mask and inked just the front rim of the jar and stamped again so that the stems appeared to be inside of the jar.  Used Distress ink to paint the jar and Inktense pencils and a water brush to paint the flowers.  After it dried it was pretty warped, so spritzed the back side of the front of the card lightly with water and placed under a heavy book to dry.  Stamped the sentiment, also from Gina K in black.

Now it's your turn to share your creation that was inspired by our Photo.  You could be chosen as our next Chic of the Week, which would then make you eligible at a chance to become our next Guest Designer!  Please limit your entries to 3.

Also, joining in on the Addicted to CAS challenge - Code Word One Layer.

The mason jar was what I loved about the photo too, Sue. You did a great job with the masking and coloring.
