Just Us Girls Challenge #266 - Trend Week

Chris is jumping right into our challenges as our hostess for Trend Week at Just Us Girls!  She is challenging us to do the Chalkboard Effect technique.  This is going to be a first for me.

Come and check out what our talented Guest Designer, Tajanna and the rest of the JUGS Design Team have created using the Chalkboard Technique.

Stamped the image and sentiment from Gina K's Square Pegs in WPlus9 white ink and heat embossed with white embossing powder.  Tapped my finger in the white ink and lightly smeared some on the black cardstock around the image.  Matted with a brown frame, adding staples with my Tim Holtz Tiny Attacher.  Stamped some Stitches by Gina K in Memento Espresso Truffle and added some washi tape.

Now come along and play with us at Just Us Girls in this week's Trend Challenge.  You could be chosen as our Chic of the Week and that would put you in the running to be our next Guest Designer!  Please limit your entries to 3.
