JUGS GD - Hero ....

... Morning all! I am so excited to share the news that I am Guest Designer at Just Us Girls for the entire month of May!!! 😄😀😄 The first challenge of the month is a word challenge and this week the word is HERO. Here's my take:


Stamps: Waltzingmouse Stamps - Kaboom, Halftone Basics; There She Goes - Cutie Pi
Inks: Hero Arts Neon - Orange, Green; Gina K - Black Amalgam
Accessories: White Card; Copic Markers; Glossy Accents; Nuvo - Clear Aqua Shimmer Brush

With all that's going on in the world with Covid-19, some of my heroes are the scientists who are working so hard to come up with a vaccine and treatment. So my card is to honour the scientists, that's not to say the other key workers are forgotten. I'm submitting this card to Perfectly CAS - PCAS#08 where they want us to use Masking.


I've been going through all my crafty stash and this card is made entirely from stamps that have been discontinued (so sad), but they are still super. I stamped the scientist towards the edge of the card and then covered her with a mask so that I could stamp the neon "superhero" elements. After removing the mask, I coloured the image with Copic markers. I stamped the sentiment in bold black and finished the front by adding glossy accents to the goggles. I also added a touch of sparkle to the fluid in the testtube. On the inside, I carried on with the "superhero" elements with a bold green frame around the words and some stars. I also stamps some chemistry glassware at the bottom of the card.


I took a close-up photo of the goggles to show the glossy finish - it makes such a difference to the finished look of the card.


Come and join in this week's challenge at Just Us Girls - JUGS#534 to make a card for a hero. Can't wait to see what you make. Be safe, keep well. See you soon.

I was so happy to 'see' you over at my friend Bobby's blog this morning, Deborah! Congratulations on your GD spot at JUGS! and for creating this darling little scientist as your hero! LOVE the gloss you've added to her goggles.
Hope life is treating you grand... I do miss having you here in Michigan - and the thought that maybe we'd meet again! Who knows, right?
