Just Us Girls #476 – Photo Week

Just Us Girls #476 - Photo Week

Click to enlarge.

We have a photo inspiration over at Just Us Girls this week, we are working with a photo of amethyst, the gemstone of February.  I worked with the color purple and the concept of a gemstone.

I made a watercolor panel with lots of purple and metallic splatter.  Truth time–I had initially white embossed the sentiment on the panel.  The result was awful and not readable on the purple (it seemed clear in my head).  I really liked the watercolor panel.  I attempted to fix the mistake by stamping the sentiment on a vellum panel, then gluing the vellum over the initial white sentiment.  The vellum panel seemed to save the card….I think.  🙂

Atop the vellum panel, I attached die cut gems and sequins.

Supplies: Essentials by Ellen You Rock, Amuse Artstamps Shine Bright, My Favorite Things Pierced Square STAX, My Favorite Things Blueprints 16 (embossed A2 frame), Versafine Clair Nocturne, Hero Arts clear embossing powder, Kurtake watercolors, vellum, silver Mirracard, Pretty Pink Posh sequins

    Love when accidents turn into better cards! Love the addition of the vellum panel. This card is gorgeous and using the gems was a terrific idea! Thrilled to have this beauty in our gallery this week at Just Us Girls!

    I love that you used those gem dies for this challenge! I thought about those, but didn’t have them! Great save for the sentiment! Love your card! Thanks for playing with Just Us Girls!
