Just Us Girls #412 - Photo Week

Dear Ones~
This week it's PHOTO WEEK over at Just Us Girls, and our gal Ina has chosen this wonderful photo for our inspiration.
WOW!!!! Lots of inspiration here!!!!

This is what I came up with:
I decided to pick up on the succulents in the pots on the table in the middle of the photo. Also liked all the tropical greenery. This is an image from the GKD Sentimental Summer Stamp TV kit. I have been practicing the no line watercoloring technique, so I stamped the succulents with a very light Distress Ink and then colored the image with my Zigs.

Here are the Ingredients:
GKD Ocean Mist and Jellybean Green Card Stock
GKD White Card Stock
SU Botanical Gardens Patterned Paper
SU Botanical Builders Framelits
GKD Sentimental Summer Stamp TV Kit
Spellbinders Fancy Frame 2 Die
Spellbinders Large Classic Ovals Die
Antique Linen Distress Ink
Zig Clean Color Brush Markers

Please visit the JUST US GIRLS blog to see the wonderful examples that our September Guest Designer Linda 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!!   Good luck, and I hope to see you there. 

Thanks for stopping by, I adore your comments!
