Just Us Girls #188 - Technique Challenge

Hi there friends!  It's been a few days since I last posted....busy week!  But I'm here with a new technique challenge from Just Us Girls.  This week, Tangii came up with a great and easy technique...use some kind of white medium on your creation.  It could be white ink, white pencil, chalk, etc.

I recently took another class from Online Card Classes (His & Hers), and Jennifer McGuire made the coolest card with white pigment ink and dye inks.  I did something similar with my card.  I stamped the solid tree from PTI's Layered Postmarks:  Holiday in their Fresh Snow ink.  I overstamped the postmark print in Always Artichoke.  Then I added too many snowflakes (I never know when to quit!) and used the ink to shade around the kraft card stock.  I stamped the sentiment from PTI's Stylish Sentiments:  Holiday in Versamarkon velum and embossed it in white embossing powder.  I added a couple of sequins to the sentiment.  It's all mounted on an Always Artichoke base.  A sheer ribbon bow tops off the tree.

You can see more great inspiration from the JUGs DT at these blogs.

Thanks for stopping by!  I have Mother's Day cards to share.  Hopefully on Monday!  See you then!
