Just Us Girls Technique Challenge #231

Sharyn has a fun technique for us this week - Weathered Wood Background.  Here is a link for the tutorial.

And once again, please welcome our talented Guest Designer for March - Calypso!

I stamped the tulips from one of my favorite sets by Gina K - A Year of Flowers, colored with Touch Twin Markers and cut them out.  Die cut an oval from DCWV Burlap paper (it is burlap on the front and paper on the back) and sponged Black Soot Distress Ink around the edge and adhered the tulips.  I added more lines than the turtorial and black gel pen "nails".  Stamped the sentiment, also by Gina K with Memento Espresso Truffle ink, added a couple of word window punch pieces and a couple of black Paper Pen pearls.

Can't wait to see what you create with this fun technique!

Here are the links to the JUGS blog and design team

This is also for the March Challenge at Stamplorations - Stamps and Spring
