Just Us Girls #351 - Trend Week

Vicki is the hostess for our Trend Week Challenge at Just Us Girls and she has chosen Sponging!  You can sponge through stencils or around an image to add a soft glow.  How do you like to sponge?

We have our Guest Designer, Carol Mayne with us again this week.  Check out the JUGS Blog to see all of the soft, beautiful sponging by Carol and the rest of the Design Team.

First I stamped the sentiment in black then shifted it slightly and stamped it again with Versamark and heat embossed it with clear ep on white cardstock.  I sponged Distress inks in orange and yellow through a chevron stencil and rubbed the inks off of the sentiment..  Matted on black, layered onto a black die cut cover plate and onto a white card base.

Come and play along with us and you could be chosen as our next Chic of the Week, which would then put you in the running at becoming our next Guest Designer!  Please limit your entries to 3.

SO FABULOUS! The bright in-your-face colors are my cup of tea! Great shadow stamping too

Love your background and stencilling. Beautiful bright colours. Nice use of that sentiment.

Your 'slightly off-shifted' stenciling/sponging is so striking! A technique that I haven't used in quite a while; you've inspired me to give it another go! Thrilled to be your GD for this challenge; I love sponging!

Well this is just genius, that is all!!! What a great idea to do the greeting in that way, I will remember that. Thanks for the your design!!!
