"Just Us Girls" Week 3 - Color Challenge


My BBGF (Best Blogging GF), Gwen, found a fun new challenge for us to try. Go check out her card (just click on her name) and the challenge blog here: Just Us Girls!!! The theme changes weekly, which should really keep our creative juices flowing, something I reallly NEED lately! For this challenge, I decided to play with my Spellbinders' Fancy Tags dies. I love how you can use the tag's flourishes as embellishments with other Nesties dies. I added the end flourishes from the largest tag to the edges of my stamped Curved Rectangles and then another underneath the tag containing my stamped sentiment. Copic BGOOO gave my pearls just the right aqua accent.
Paper: PTI's Vintage Cream, Pure Poppy & Aqua Mist
Stamps: PTI's Silent Night
Ink: PTI's Pure Poppy & Versacolor's 138 Seafoam
Embellishments: Pearls & ribbon from stash
T0ols: Copic Marker BGOOO; Spellbinders' Wizard, Fancy Tags & Curved Rectangles Dies
