Just Us Girls Week 298

Hello there!
I'm Guesting again this week with those lovely ladies at

The challenge we've been set this week is a colour challenge
Burgundy, Orange (or Gold) and Yellow


I confess when I first saw this I thought burgundy? What have I got that's burgundy? Turns out I actually had a little Versacolour cube in burgundy ... So I decided to do some ink blending


After sponging on my 3 different colour inks I splashed a little water on then stamped and embossed my sentiment in gold


I used the same 3 inks to colour scraps of CS and cut out little stars which were then covered in glossy accents and to give them a shooting star look I added a few gold strands before adhering them with foam dots onto the card


I'm so glad I discovered that little ink pad because I really love the colour.

As always the ladies at Just Us Girls have lots more inspiration for you up on the Blog and one winner from any of the June Challenges will be in the running to be picked as Guest Designer for the whole month of August! So link up your entry ... I'm looking forward to seeing what you come up with using these colours ...

Thanks so much for your visit - Have a great day

~ Ros ~
