Just Us Girls Wild Card Week #243

This month has a fifth week, so it is time for our Wild Card Challenge brought to us by Sharyn!  We were challenged to make a shaving cream background.

This is also our last week with our May Guest Designer - Barbara Campbell.  She has really wowed us with her creations.

Red and Yellow reinkers were dripped onto shaving cream and swirled together for the background.  I wasn't sure how it would turn out stamping directly onto the background, but it worked great.  Stamped the sentiment, masked it with some Post-It tape and stamped the balloon strings with Versafine Onyx ink.  The balloons were stamped with Memento Luxe and Hero Arts Neon inks.  Washi tape on white cardstock and cut the end into a fishtail.  Added some Paper Pen dots in red and blue.

Now it's your turn to play along with us for a chance to become our Guest Designer for the entire month of July.  Can't wait to see all of the fabulous creations that this photo inspires.

Here are some links to the JUGS blog and design team

  4. Such a fabulous use of the technique! I also adore that big ole HB!

  5. I love the "firecracker" look that you got with your colors. Looks like a party is going on behind those balloons.
