Guest Designer for Just Us Girls Challenge #545

Hello there.  I’m back for the third week as guest designer at Just Us Girls (JUGS).  It’s Color Week challenge #545 using colours Mustard, Teal and Light Grey.


I almost went the floral route, but then thought one of the adorable pups in the Christmas Puppies stamp set from Gerda Steiner Designs would fit the bill and created this.


I kept it clean and simple (CAS) this time.  Stamped the puppy with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on a scrap of X-Press It cardstock.  Coloured it in the colours of the challenge with Copic Sketch markers, then die cut it out with the matching die.  Die cut two more times from regular thick cardstock and stacked for dimension.


Took a stitched Bristol panel from my stash next and blended SU!’s Smoky Slate dye ink with a blender brush over an English Brick stencil from My Favorite Things.  Black heat embossed the sentiment from Gerda Steiner Designs Moody Unicorns then mounted the panel with fun foam on a white card base to finish.


If you need more inspirations before playing along, head on over to the challenge post HERE and check out what the wonderful design team has created.  Hope to see you in the gallery.  Thank you for joining me today.
