Just Us Girls #307 - Photo Week

It's Photo Week at Just Us Girls with Chris as our hostess!  With autumn closing in on us, this is so perfect,



With us again this week is our August Guest Designer - Karen Bourke.  Come see how this photo has inspired Karen and the rest of the JUGS Design Team.



I tried out Jennifer McGuire's technique for this one - Faux Textured Metal.  Here is a link to her tutorial Jennifer McGuire Ink.  First the edges were masked off using painter's tape.  I used various Distress Inks sponged on the center, then covered with Versamark and dusted with Perfect Pearls.  Removed the tape and ran it through my Big Shot in a lattice embossing folder.  Sponged the leaves with reds, oranges and yellow Distress Inks then sprayed with some gold shimmer spray.  Layered the die cut sentiment (2 layers) across the top of it.

Now let's see what inspires you from our beautiful fall photo.  You could be chosen as our next Chic of the Week, which would then make you eligible to become our next Guest Designer!  Please limit your entries to 3.
