Just Us Girls #258 - Trend Week


Hi friends!  This week is Trend Week over at Just Us Girls, and Vicki is our hostess.  She chose the fun and oh so trendy watercolor technique. 
 
I had been wanting this Scribbly Birds set from Dina Wakley, but they were out-of-stock when I went to purchase it.  I was at a stamp show a couple of weeks ago and saw it at the Ranger booth!  I was so happy to have snagged them!  These birds are perfect for watercoloring!  I used SU reinkers and instead of water, I used a Perfect Pearls spray to mix into the ink.  This gave a very shimmery look to the entire card.  I just mounted it on creamy caramel cardstock, rounded the corners, and added wooden stars.
 
You can see more inspiration from the design team and our September guest on these blogs.
 
 
We also have a Design Team Call going on this week only!  We will announce the new designer on September 20!  So check out the JUGs blog for details!
 
Thanks for stopping by!

Hello, Lisa,
you were really lucky to find this stamp because it is adorable! The bird is so round, so sweet...
I have never seen a Perfect Pearls spray, I just should look for it in on line shops because the mix with watercolour is really great!
