Happy Birthday 'Roar'

It's a New Month and the start of our challenges at
Just Us Girls and a New Guest.
Welcome to Fran Wing 
We start with Word Week and Hosting is Nancy


I chose to feature a Lion inking in black 
and clear embossed.
This is where my plans changed
going with a colourful background 
using Tim's Oxides Black Brusho's
and Lindy's Screamin' Banshee Black
which really shows up with the blue shimmer
and hard to photograph.
Die cut and framed in black.
Sentiment and Lion are from Happy Little Stampers.
Popped onto black card base.
Head over and see what mammal our Guest Fran
and my Team Mates chose to feature
and we would love to see yours
in our Gallery.
You could be our Chic of the Week and
in the running to be our Guest in September.
Thanks for dropping in

Flowers are Nature's Blessings

Today's post is for the New Anything Goes
Mixed Media Challenge over at 

Craft time has been hit and miss lately with lots happening
on the farm. Lucky what I made came together easily
and I even managed to take some photos along the way.
It wasn't what I planned but time wasn't on my side -
so going with a CAS Mixed Media make.
Here's a quick run down on how it came together
and the products I used.
Project is 6 3/4 x 4 3/4 on heavy watercolour paper
Lindy's Magical's Victorial Bouquet
Cowabunga Copper
Nuvo  Solo Flare Shimmer Powder
Ken Oliver Copper Liquid Metal
AA Rust Brown Matte Wax
AALL&Create Stamp #292
" Washi Tape #1 #9 #11
Carabelle Studio Flowers
Tissue Paper 
Matte Gel Medium, Gesso
Black Card Stock.

And some pics!

The background with Magical's and adding washi tape

After random stamping around the edges
I inked the flowers on tissue paper and coloured.
Diluted gesso was added before adhering
the flowers with gel medium.

Adding the sentiment and adhering to 
black background to complete.

Head over and see what inspirational Mixed Media Makes
the Team created. They would love to read your comments
as I do and we would love to see you play this month
and add to our Gallery.

Hello 'Sunshine'

Hello and Welcome to my Saturday post for Just Us Girls
Hosting our Photo Week is Vicki and what a super fun one
for us to be inspired by.

The first thing that stood out were those 'cool' sunglasses.
Then the glorious sunshine - needed those glasses for sure!
Just by chance I recently purchased some spectacle dies
and my card started from there, cutting them in different colours.
I then went to the background with Tim's Rays Stencil
with blended oxide inks.
The middle sunglasses have yellow vellum inserted
and of course some 'bling' added.
Sentiment and die are from STAMPlorations.
Head over and see what our Guest Lucie
and the rest of the Talented Team had fun with.
We'd love to see yours in our Gallery
It's the last chance to be chosen as our Chic of the Week 
for this month and be in the running as our Guest in August.
A Big Thank You Lucie for sharing your talents with us this month.
It has been lovely. 
Thanks for visiting. I do love reading your comments.

From Me to You

 Having a little play time keeping warm
while others across the waters are trying to stay cool.
Once again I am playing with the two challenges below.

and a close up

Floral image is from Rubbernecker
heat embossed in pearl blue - 
coloured with various blues from
Lindy's, Perfect Pearls, LuminArte
and ColourBlast onto watercolour paper.
Background is simple stencilling with
Ranger Distress Grit Paste from an AALL&Create folder.
Sentiment is STAMPlorations..
I resisted adding some flicks of colour
beside the flower. 

Sending this card over to

Stencil, Grit Paste, Heat Embossing,

A Thank You Bouquet

it is my turn to choose the Theme and is Layers! 
You can go in any direction 
be it dies (as I have)
designer papers layered or
even bits and bobs from your stash - 
lace, buttons, pearls with the endless choices.
Go all out with a fancy shaped card even!

Here's a close up

There's lots going on here and I have used
quite a few supplies - 
A mixture of Tim's Wildflower Stems,
Oxide Inks, Lindy's Magical's,
AALL&Create stencil, grit paste,
AA Wax, twine, a tiny tag and
did you wonder what those flowers were wrapped in?
It is a piece of paper that was wrapped around our
calamari and chips . As soon as I saw it
I unwrapped them quickly not to get any marks on it.
My Sistah's have made beautiful cards for your pleasure.
Head over and check them out and leave some love.
We all greatly appreciate you taking the time to do so.
Hope to see you add your layered card
to our Gallery. 

Sending this over to Mixed Media Lovers

Did Someone Say Ice Cream?

It's Saturday and  Just Us Girls Challenge is Live!
Our Host for Trend Week is Elizabeth
and chose a 'beauty'

It has been an 'AGE' since I have made a Wobbler Card
and found a stamp/die that made for a fun card!
It's Sweet Cravings from STAMPlorations.
Heat embossed in white and coloured with
Tim's oxide inks and for the wobbler
I die cut it another and coloured the same.
Added sprinkles to the top layer.
What is an ice cream without them?
Background has a bit of stencilling
and a few splatters.
Sentiments are from the same stamp set.
Added to coloured card base.
Head over to Our Blog and
check out our Guest Lucie 
and my talented Team Mates creations
and join in this fun challenge with yours.
