Just Us Girls #277 - Photo Inspiration



Fun photo, isn't it? All about that Heart Day coming up :).

I used one of the new stencils that STAMPlorations is now selling, Hearts All Over.  I have to say, this was an easy stencil to use -- not too thin, and a little bigger then 4.25 x 5.50.  Makes it easy to tape down and color it. I did a semi ombre effect with pink and red.  The bg chevrons are from Inspired By Stamping, Background Basics 2.  I layered my heart 3 times for depth and sponged around it too.  I am also entering this into the CAS on Sunday Challenge; stencil, and Inkspirational Challenge; ombre.


I look forward to seeing how the photo inspired you!  Pop on over to JUGS, check out the Team samples, and then play along!  We love our players :)


Thanks for stopping by~

I love that background with the stenciled hearts over the soft chevron! Great idea. And that layered big heart is beautiful with the sentiment layered over it. Way to rock that photo!
