It's Photo Week at Just Us Girls

It's our Photo Week at Just Us Girls 
and our Host Sue has chosen

This photo really stumped me at first till
I remembered I had a stamp that would suffice 
as I wanted to feature the falling greenery.
This was inked in green and clear embossed.
I recently bought a die that I thought would be 
an interesting feature.
This is where I went way outside the box.
Before I attached my die I did some stencilling
and sponging in the same green, 
cutting a circle to use as a moon
enhancing it with a gold gel pen.
Finished with attaching to black card base.
Something a little different from the photo
but that is the thing - everyone chooses
what they see that takes their eye and go from there.
Head over and see what's in the Gallery for your inspiration.
from our  Guest Fran and my Talented Team Mates 
What stood out for you?
Hope to see yours there.
Thanks for visiting.

Oh Happy Day!

 I have been in a pinky/peachy kind of mood lately and
thought it time I brightened things up with a
few favourite deep coloured oxide inks.
and using dies/inks from Tim - 
Wildflowers from three different sets
and his Mixed Media Die Set.

My background colours are
Crackling Campfire and Spiced Marmalade.
I then placed AALL&Create Geometric Grid #81
on top and sponged with a wet baby wipe
to lift the ink and create a pattern.
Die cut the corner from the Mixed Media Set.
To add a little extra interest I inked the other side with
AALL&Create Scripts #292 in black.
Die cut several wildflowers also in black
holding in place with a tiny piece of orange cotton.
Sentiment is retired SU Build a Bouquet.
Adhered to black card base.

Joining in the Tic Tac Toe Challenge

I am joining in on the fun over at the
choosing the left row down - 
CAS Birthday Die Cut/s

I seem to be in a peachy/pinky mood lately 
and this is the go to colour here also
using die cuts gifted by my bff.
As the row I picked has CAS
it makes for using die cuts a breeze.
These were coloured after I inked
w/c paper with Tim's Abandoned Coral and
Lindy's Oom Pah Pah Pink powder with acetate.
I love adding a lightly coloured background
with a stencil - this one from AALL&Create.
Hoping I have left enough white space. for CAS
To add a little extra something I added some splatters,
a little cheesecloth and gold thread before
topping with my STAMPlorations Birthday Sentiment.
Attached to gold border and on to
white card base to complete.
Thanks for visiting.

From Me to You

The New Challenge over at Color Hues
Don't you love that combo!

I got out a few dies that a friend cut for me'
added a touch of peach from Lindy's Magicals
 and some shimmer from a Nuvo pen
which is a little hard to see.
Grey die cut is also from my bff.
Very lightly stencilled my background
which is AALL&Create Weathered Tiles #59
Sentiment is from STAMPlorations.
Added a couple of strips of washi tape
also from AALL&Create #11
adhered to grey c/s and on to
white card base.

Thanks for visiting and leaving kind comments.
Till next time!
