Just Us Girls #319 - Trend Week

Maria is challenging us this week at Just Us Girls to use Watercoloring on our creations.



Come on over to Just Us Girls to see what our November Guest Designer, Louise Hodge and the rest of the JUGS Design Team have done with watercolor.



Colored the flowers with Distress Markers, misted and stamped on watercolor paper.  Then added more water with a paintbrush for the colors to bleed a little more.  After it completely dried, stamped the sentiment with Memento Espresso Truffle ink.   Layered on some dark brown cardstock with the edges distressed and onto an artichoke base.

Now it's your turn to play with some watercolor.  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.

Oh wow this is so pretty! I love how the colors just bleed into each other giving it a muted effect. Very cool!

Wow, what a stunning card, Sue. Love how the colors blend into one another, such a soft look.
