Just Us Girls #410 - Trend Week

It's time for a Trend challenge this week at Just Us Girls and Bobby has chosen a fun one for us, Block Watercolor Stamping!


With us again this week as our Guest Designer for the month of September is Linda Snodgrass!  Come check out the JUGS Challenge Blog to see what Linda and the rest of the talented Design Team have created using this technique.


I inked up the grid side of an acrylic block with Distress Oxide inks, misted with water and stamped onto watercolor paper.  Die cut the heart then used an embossing folder with stripes on it.  The sentiment from Altenew didn't get a clear impression so I carefully went over the letters with a white gel pen.  Tied a little bow with pink baker's twine.

Play along with us and you could be chosen as our next Chic of the Week, which would then make you eligible for a chance to become our next Guest Designer!  Please limit your entries to 3.
