Just Us Girls #84 - Technique Challenge

Hello friends! Just Us Girls has a great technique challenge this week brought to us by Kristin! The challenge is Kissing with a Twist. If you haven't tried this, you really should because you get a really cool look...almost a batik look! You can find the tutorial here on SCS. To achieve this look, you need a stamp with a solid surface. I used this image from PTI's Modern Basics stamped in Marigold Morning ink and then kissed it with a twist using a tri-circle image from Men of Life in Wild Wasbi ink. The sentiment, from Big Birthday Wishes, was also stamped in Wild Wasabi ink. I added the score lines and the glitter strip to fill up some of the white space.

The JUGs girls and guest designer Clare Buswell have done a fantastic job with this technique, so please make sure you stop by the JUGs blog and check it out!

Thanks for stopping by! Enjoy your weekend!
