Just Us Girls #472 - Photo Week

As our hostess, Nancy picked this for photo week at Just Us Girls.
She doesn't know what she put me through because I don't have any of these stamped images.  Never one to give up, I searched for free clip art to make my card.  I'm telling you this so you know you can do the same if you don't have any stamps that work for the challenge.
I printed it on Mixed Media paper and did a little coloring with both Distress Inks and PolyChromos pencils.  I wanted it to look like an old photo so I inked the edged and ran my Clarity brush over the oval to give it an aged look.  I couldn't decide what to do so I left off the sentiment.

I hope the images don't stop you from entering a card in our gallery.  The Design Team and our illustrious guests, Janet and Cindy have inspiration for you over on the blog if you get stuck.  Don't miss a chance to be Chic of the Week and a guest designer.

  9. You have found a gorgeous ship so perfect for the challenge! I love the coloring and the aging on this. I usually don't add a sentiment to the front of my cards for this same reason, can always be added when it comes into use!
