Just Us Girls #483 - Trend Week

It's my turn to host the challenge at Just Us Girls and this week is Trend Week!  Watercolor continues to be a big trend in cardmaking and when you aren't that good at watercoloring you have to find a way to get good results!  I came across this tutorial from Jennifer McGuire for Fast Watercolor Looks and I am quite happy with the results.  Jennifer has some of the best tutorials!


Come on over to JUGS to see the amazing results our Guest Designer Ros Crawford and the rest of our amazing Design Team have gotten with this technique.



First I heat embossed the flowers and leaves on the die cut Altenew flowers then followed Jennifer's tutorial using the Distress Inks!  I love how they turned out!

I can't wait to see the results everyone gets with this technique!  Come share your creations 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.
