JUGS316 Thinking of You

Hi Friends!!

It’s time for the new Just Us Girls #316 “Photo Week” Challenge and I decided to create a fun Mixed Media background using Gelatos® and Brusho® Colour Crystals.

I hope you will have a chance to check out the rest of the fabulous Just Us Girls Design Team projects and come join in on the fun!
I am also linking this card to the Splitcoaststampers’ TLC554 "WatercolorThose Die Cuts" Challenge. 

To create this card:

Spritz a piece of Watercolor Paper with water and add the Lemon, Cherry and Blueberry Gelatos®, spritzing again and allowing the colors to blend.

Portion of watercolored background
prior to cutting with the die
Dry with the Heat Tool, spritz the paper again and add the Brusho® Colour Crystals  (I  used Brilliant Red, Turquoise and Yellow) adding additional water as needed to dilute the crystals swirling the colors around on the paper, dry with the Heat Tool and once dried cut out with the Big Shot™ using the Docrafts® Bee Keeper Die.

Cut another honeycomb piece using the same die from Basic Black cardstock (set aside the small black honeycomb shapes for another day:-))

Lay the watercolored honeycomb die cut frame onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock and adhere each individual hexagon onto the card front.

Add the Basic Black honeycomb die cut frame off center a bit to mimic the shelves in the photo.

Trim the panel and mount onto a piece of Basic Black cardstock, trim again and mount onto the Whisper White card base.

Add the Silver Metallic Thread (looping and adhering the thread behind the area that the sentiment will cover).

De-static a piece of Basic Black cardstock using the Embossing Buddy®, stamp the sentiment from the October 15 Paper Pumpkin set, Blissful Bouquet using Versamark™ Ink, apply Stampin’ Emboss White Embossing Powder and heat set with the Heat Tool.

Wrap a few pieces of the Silver Metallic Thread around the edges, punch the ends with the Hexagon Punch to create the banner and mount to the card using Stampin’ Dimensionals® to finish off the card.

Stamp Sets:  Blissful Bouquet (Stampin’  Up! Oct15 Paper Pumpkin set)

Ink: Versamark™; Gelatos®- Lemon, Cherry, Blueberry, Brusho® Colour Crystals- Brilliant Red, Yellow, Turquoise

Paper: Watercolor, Whisper White, Basic Black

Accessories: Big Shot™, Docrafts® Bee Keeper Die, Embossing Buddy®, Stampin’ Emboss® White Embossing Powder, Heat Tool, Hexagon Punch, Silver Metallic Thread

Absolutely fabulous job here Julie. Love those deep dark rich colours. Great layout. I am still learning how to use my gelatos and love them. Thanks for doing this amazing card for my challenge this week.
