Just Us Girls #520 - Photo Week

It's Photo Week at Just Us Girls and Vicki has chosen a beautiful butterfly photo for our inspiration!


Sadly, this is our last week with our 2 January Guest Designers and I would like to say thank you to Mary Deatherage and Hannilie Bester for joining us this past month and sharing your amazing creations!  Now, hop on over to JUGS to see what Mary and Hannalie along with the rest of the amazing Design Team have created with this Photo as inspiration.



Die Cut the butterfly by Concord & 9th from some old Stampin Up Vintage Violet and sponged some Vintage Violet ink in the center to darker it and some white ink on the outer edges.  Tranced the butterfly onto some white cardstock and cut it out for a sold piece under the die cut.  Added some Nuvo iridescent drops to my kraft sheet and smeared it all over the solid piece and adhered the die cut on top.  I wasn't happy with the results, so added some Stickles in Frosted Lace to the openings.  The background is a new stamp by Brutus Monroe, watercolor background.  Stamped once with Distress Oxide ink in Dusty Concord and spritzed with water.  Smeared some DO in Broken china on the kraft mat, spritzed with water and used a waterbrush to add more color to the background.  Stamped the sentiment with Vintage Violet and cut it out.  Adhered the butterfly with dimensionals and used a Vintage Violet card base.

Come play along with us and you could be chosen as our next Chic of the Week, which would put you in the running for a chance to become our next Guest Designer!  Please limit your entries to 3.
