Pop of Color for Just Us Girls

Hi there.

I hope you are having a colorful week!

Edited to add:  I'm excited to say that this card won me
Chic of the Week at Just Us Girls!
Thanks, ladies!



When I saw this week's challenge at Just Us Girls, I immediately
thought of a stamp set that I bought at the SSAT show in July!
It had been languishing in my NBUS box since then.


This was a new to me stamp company called Right at Home
and I did a shameless CASE of their card.

First I stamped in Versafine Onyx Black and clear embossed to help me stay in the lines.

I used Distress Markers to color in the letters, then drew a thin line from
the base of the letters and wet it with my Aqua Painter.
To make the drizzles a little brighter, I dipped my brush into drops of re-inker
and pulled it along the sketched lines.

This set has several other color in sentiments.

I wonder how long it will take me to use them?


Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.

Enjoy!

this is so cool! I love how you dripped the color down from the letters and that complete sentiment is awesome. I'm going to have to check out that stamp set. Thanks for playing with us at JUGS!

This is such a fun, colorful card. I do like that stamp and how you made the colors flowing on it. The three bright primary color mats add so much to the card.

Love the idea of the color dripping from the lettering, Bonnie! That's genius and creates such a different effect. Love the sentiment you paired with this one!

Love the drippy letters. I knew they just didn't happen that way (happy accident) but that you commanded them to go just right. You did awesome!

Loll said...

Very creative way to use the primary colours from JUGS, Bonnie. I'm going to have to check out the new stamp company. :) xx
