Just Us Girls #298 Color Week!

Hi everyone!  I'm back and happy to be here!  Ina has a great color challenge for us this week.  Ina is from Down Under and I'm wondering if it's autumn in Australia since her colors are very autumnal for us here in North America!  Anyway, they are beautiful colors!  We'd love to see what you create with them . In the meantime you can find loads of inspiration HERE on our blog!





I had Cherry Cobbler all picked out for the base,but when I was ready to put the card together I changed my mind and went with PTI's Berry Sorbet as a base and stamped in Cherry cobbler (MFT grid stamp) for a better look, IMO!  The next layer is cut with a PTI die from a Marigold or Hello Honey (not sure which) from SU.  The cross stitch die is from MFT as is the stamp set YOU GNOME ME.
The white piece behind my gnome is stenciled while in the die with Coastal Cabana and Lucky Limeage.  Then I spritzed some water into my hand and sprinkled it on the piece.  I need some practice with this splatter technique, but I wanted to splotch up the bg a bit and it sure die.  I added some grass with a black Sharpie.  The gnome is colored with copic markers.
Well I guess that's it for my red and gold card today.

Remember, by joining us this month you have the chance to win a spot as out guest Designer in August!  We'd sure love to see your work! YOu have until Thursday, June 25 at 9 pm ET to link up

Have a great weekend. Cheryl

I'm laughing out loud here at your super gnome - beautifully coloured. Lovely little scene you created and super background.
And YES it was Autumn not long ago lol and now Winter is here but luckily I don't get that COLD WEATHER like you all do over the pond. Don't do cold very well.
