Just Us Girls #449 - Trend Week

It's Trend Week at Just Us Girls and Bobby has chosen the ever trendy Watercolor Background.


Come on over to the JUGS blog to see the beautiful watercolor backgrounds created by our Guest Designer - Julia Aston and the rest of the Design Team.


A friend asked me to make a sympathy card for someone who just lost their beloved cat and this is the best cat image I could come up with.  I colored the cat to try to match what the cat looked like in life. Distress Inks were used on the background and then the leafy branched were added by using a stencil.  After sponging some green ink through the stencil, I added some brown to the branches and some darker green to the leaves with Prismacolor pencils.  I didn't have a color I liked for a base, so I swiped some Distress Ink around the outside edge of a white base and on a strip for the sentiment and the circle for a better match. 

Now it's your turn to create a watercolor background and play along with us at JUGS.  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.
