Just Us Girls Guest Designer - Week 4


My final post as this month's Guest Designer for Just Us Girls :(  This week it's a photo inspiration:


The starting point for my card was the chevrons on the wall.  Followed by the flower.  I used Weathered Wood and Tumbled Glass Distress Inks on the chevron stencil √† la Tim Holtz, then stamped the flower on some spare card and sloshed a bit of Tumbled Glass on, then fussy cut it.  I drew in a stem and stamped the HB2U either side of the stem then drew leaves around them.

I'm entering my card into Simon Says Wednesday Challenge - Anything Goes, and Simon Says Work It Wednesday, where it's also Anything Goes.



Pop on over the Just Us Girls and join in the challenge (thank for having me, ladies!).

Stamps: Woodware Mini Flowers; STAMPlorations Vignette: Celebrate Artsy
