Just Us Girls: Challenge #680 - Photo/Moodboard Week

Hello, hope you've had a great start to the weekend!

Time for a new challenge at Just Us Girls where I'm guest designing this month. This week they have a moodboard from which you can draw inspiration:

There was so much to be inspired by but I went with the blue and aqua colour scheme from the sofa and cushion as well as the beautiful stone. To try and replicate the layered colours of the stone I used alcohol inks to create a background. I wanted that to be the main feature so I added a couple of simple Lotus blooms from Altenew, embossed in white on vellum and a simple sentiment. 

How will you be inspired by the moodboard? Link your creation for the chance to be Chic of the Week or future guest designer and don't forget to swing by the DT to send them some inky love!

Happy stamping!



  1. This is beautiful! Your background is so dreamy and those vellum lotus blossoms are the perfect addition. Love how the mood board inspired you to create this beauty!

  2. Claire... this is just gorgeous! The frame is so unusual...and so very perfect! Thanks so much for guesting with us!

  3. Pretty background with those lovely vellum flowers.

  4. You did a great job creating the look of the geode, Claire. That background is gorgeous and the vellum flowers go so well with it.

  5. I like the way you were inspired, Claire, this is lovely!

  6. Those vellum blooms are xquisite Claire and you've perfectly captured the essence of that geode (fab frame you used on that btw)! Congratulations on your guest design stint at JUGS too! Hugs, Kate!

  7. A beautiful take on the moodboard, Claire. The alcohol inks background is a pretty background for your delicate blooms. Lovely!

  8. Simple and stunning Claire. Love the die cut, background and wow to the beautiful vellum blooms.


Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a comment - they really make my day!
