Just Us Girls #262 - Trend Week

Happy Columbus Day weekend!  I have Monday off and I'm planning on going to a craft show at Letchworth State Park here in NY state.  They have a really great one all weekend, and I like going on Monday because it's not as crowded.  I'm going to take my niece, Maria, with me too so it will be a nice day.
So this week is Trend Week over at Just Us Girls and Sue T. chose the ombre technique.  Love this one!  On a sad note, Sue T. is stepping down as a designer at JUGs.  We will certainly miss her, but understand life comes first!  Best wishes to you my friend!
I used Gelatos on a piece of watercolor paper in blue, green, and lime green.  Then I added water.  The blue and the green look splotchy.  I don't know why because I used the smooth side of the paper.  Oh well, I think it looks cool.  Then I die cut it with the plate.  To keep the same texture of the paper, I die cue just the rectangle once again from the watercolor paper and stamped the sentiment.  I colored it with lime green and blue copic markers and added enamel dots.  The die cut was adhered to a piece of pattern paper. 
You can see more from the design team and our Guest Designer on these blogs.
Thanks for visiting today!

This sentiment just cracks me up! So cute! At first glance, I thought this was rows and rows of lit up houses, but now I see that it's banners. I love the little trick of the eye!

Ina said...

I agree with Becca - at first it does look like rows of houses lol
What a fabulous way of showcasing the ombre effect for tis weeks challenge. Simply dazzling. Great sentiment.

Like Becca, iI saw the negative space and thought it was a village transforming from sunny to dusky:). Either way its cute as can be, Lisa.
