From Me to You

It's our Colour Week at Just Us Girls
Elizabeth is Hosting and chose Pastels.

A New Month brings us a New Guest Designer
Welcome to Kristin Sluhan

I wanted something simple so got out an old favourite
SU Four Feathers Stamp/Die Set.
Wasn't sure which way to go with the colours
so inked and die cut a few.
I used Tim's oxide inks in the soft colours of
saltwater taffy and salvaged patina.
Did some soft stencilling for the background
from Tim and Doobadoo 
adding a few circles and one with opaque crackle texture paste
onto leathergrain card stock.
I landed up using smooched paper for the popped feathers
and embossed in white.
Tied a tiny tag with sentiment from ARTplorations
Attached to Bazzill card stock.
You are going to want to play with soft pastels
after you see what is in store from our Guest
and my Talented Team Mates aren't you?
See you in the Gallery!
You could be a Chic of the Week and be our Guest 
just like Kristen
Thanks for visiting
