Just Us Girls #398 - Color Week

Dear Ones!
It's COLOR week over at Just Us Girls, and our gal Bobby has chosen yellow, aqua and brown. As always with color challenges, you are to use ONLY the three chosen colors as well as any neutrals that you need.  Neutrals are white, ivory, kraft, black, brown or gray.

Here's my Sample:
I found these colors to be challenging, but I came up with stamping the images vertically, masking when needed,  and then fussy cutting to create a pretty edge. 

  I used Altenew's Garden Treasure stamp set, which lends itself nicely to the color palette. They are multi-step stamps so I didn't need to do any coloring. I attached the brown panel to the inside after I embossed it with the Darice Basket Weave embossing folder, so it shows up on the outside and showcases the florals.

Here are the Ingredients:
GKD Ivory Card Stock
GKD Dark Chocolate Card Stock
Stash Gold Foil Card Stock
Altenew Garden Treasures Stamp Set
SU Inks in:
*Tempting Turquoise
*Island Indigo
*Soft Sky
*Crushed Curry
*So Saffron
*Early Expresso
SU Nesting Circle Dies
Stash Gold Thread
Please visit the JUST US GIRLS blog to see the wonderful examples that our June Guest Designer Estelle and the rest of the team have made this week. And remember, if you win Chic of the Week in any of our June challenges, you will be in the running to be chosen as our Guest Designer for the month of August!!   Good luck, and I hope to see you there. 

Thanks for stopping by, I adore your comments!
They always make me smile!!

I also really love (sorry say that a lot here lol) the gold strip and gold thread, it all just POPS!!!

  2. THUD! That was the sound of my jaw dropping. This is an amazing way to use these colors and I love the flowers and the way that you cut the edge. They really show up over the brown background and was embossed too. The gold threat and stripe, make this a jaw-dropping card!
