Just us Girls #362 - Photo Week

Dear Ones~
It's PHOTO WEEK over at Just Us Girls, and our host Bobby has chosen this beautiful photo. It just screams fall!!! And I always think of my friends "Down Under" who are just moving into spring.

Here's a closer look, how stunning!!!

And here's my example:

I have this old stamp set and I have no idea what company it's from or it's name. But I love the images for fall. Back in the day before I started doing challenges I didn't save any of the info regarding stamps. Little did I know that stuff was important. I used the masking technique to stamp the images and then pulled out my Prismas to color it in. Did some partial die cutting so the leaf is outside the frame.

Here are the Ingredients:
GKD Dark Sage Card Stock
DCWV Neutrals Card Stock
GKD Grateful Heart Patterned Paper
 Stash Stamps
Prismacolor Pencils
Stickles 
Stash Ribbon

With this challenge we say goodbye to our talented September Guest Designer, Kathy Schweinfurth. Thanks for all your beautiful creations this month, Kathy!

Please visit the JUST US GIRLS blog to see the wonderful cards that Kathy and the rest of the team have made this week. And remember, if you win Chic of the Week in any of our September challenges, you will be in the running to be chosen as our Guest Designer for the month of November!!   I hope to see you there. 

Good luck, and thanks for stopping by!!

  2. Fabulous coloring and masking. Love the partial die cut around the leaf. It is fun to see some of those techniques used again and remember the skill levels it takes to master them.Love the background you made by mixing the papers and the cute bow.

    Yes Spring has sprung here. I do love to see the leaves changing colour in our Autumn - just doesn't happen where I live.
