Funky Flowers...Just Us Girls Sketch Challenge, JUGS23 39

Mona Pendleton | Friday, March 5, 2010 @ 9:57 PM | ,

Hi Everyone! Before I get started about this week's challenge, I would like to welcome Stephanie Kraft as the Just Us Girls Featured Designer for the month of March :) Now, it's time for another Just Us Girls Sketch challenge & Dana is our lovely Hostess who has provided us with this fun sketch to play with. Dawn, Owner/Designer of WPlus9 Studio LLC has sponsored this week's challenge & has graciously provided us all with great stamps to play with. Dawn & her DT will be joining along with the challenge & Dawn is offering up a generous prize for one lucky participant!

Here is my Thanks card:

I inked up the fun image containing 3 Funky flowers & showcased all their beauty as my focal point :)

To create the background paper on the right side of the card, I inked up several of the "outline" images from the Funky Flowers set with SU Rich Razzleberry & randomly stamped away then, I inked up the "solid" rectangular images with SU River Rock & Pretty in Pink ink. To add color to the "circular" images, I inked up a sponge dauber with SU Cool Caribbean ink & dabbed away!

I had soooo much fun playing with BOTH Dana's sketch & Dawn's stamps, I made a second card!

To change things up a bit, I flipped the sketch.

The Funky Flowers set has so many different images, there is no way I could show them all to you so hop on over to WPlus9 webstore & see for yourself :)

There you have my interpretation (s) of Dana's beautiful sketch using Dawn's amazing stamps! I hope you are able to play along this week.

For complete details, please visit the Just Us Girls challenge site & be sure to visit ALL the DT girls (found on my side bar) as well as Stephanie & Dawn & her DT girls!
