Just Us Girls #275 - Trend Week

Hi all!  I hope you are all keeping warm in the deep freeze!  It seems most of the USA is cold!  We had a short snowstorm yesterday morning, so everything was closed...snow day!
 
This week over at Just Us Girls, Sue chose using a stencil for our trend week.  I couldn't be happier because I love stencils!
 
I went through my many stencils and came across this one from Ranger's Dylusions collections.  It's called Luscious Leaves because the other part of the stencil is a vine with leaves.  Kind of a weird pair up with this one!  I used a rainbow of Distress inks to get this look.  I had to find something to fill in the outer edges and took out the Grunge Me set from PTI and some gray ink and went to town stamping.  The sentiment is from the same set.  I die cut some banners and embossed the sentiments.  This is a different style than I normally do, but I love the variety of stamping styles and I really like the way this came out!
 
You can see more from our design team and guest on these blogs.
 
 
Thanks for stopping by!

LOVE it! I love the grunge look and this has rock star written all over it. The rainbow stenciling with the Distress Inks looks great.

Isn't it nice to break away and do something out of the ordinary? This is great! I love all of that great color you used with the stencil and the stamping along the edges added so much to it. Such a fun card!
