I am already in summer mode and thinking beachy cards. This week at Just Us Girls Challenge #633 it is Color Week: Coral, Blue, Tan. I went for a water feel with my iris effect card, which I have made a couple of times before here and here. I learned this technique from Debby Hughes here. Hope you like it!
As you can see, I tried patterned paper this time with water prints. I also used some aqua vellum because it seemed "watery" to me too! I enjoy this technique so much...it is a little like putting a puzzle together. I try to use all of my papers more than once but not let the same patterns be right next to each other. I ink blended my already coral fish with distress ink in Abandoned Coral to give some shading. I added the rough twine for the tan element and a rope/beachy texture.
We hope you will join us this week for this pretty color combo! You are sure to be inspired by the variety of great ideas the team came up with, each completely different.
