Just Us Girls #263 - Color Week

Hi everyone!  I'm the hostess this week over at Just Us Girls and I've got an interesting color combo for our Color Week.  I hope you like it!
 
I've been enamored with Kristina Werner's colorful backgrounds lately.  (You'll see another one tomorrow!)  I used distress inks and a blender tool to achieve the background.  I then die cut the ghosts.  The large one is on a wobble, and they are covered with Wink of Stella shimmer.  I die cut the word from black and white card stock and stacked them.  The black alone got lost on the dark background, so I add the white behind it and it solved the problem.  I then added some Wink of Stella shimmer on it and topped it off with Glossy Accents.  A white gel pen created the stars (too many I think!).  Since the ghosts had stitched edges, I added the white stitching around the perimeter of the scene. 

  
You can see more on these blogs from our DT and our October guest designer.
