Just Us Girls #315 - Color Week

Happy Saturday everyone!  I don't usually make lots of Halloween cards (even though I have lots of Halloween-themed stamps!), but Chris chose some colors for our Just Us Girls color challenge and they screamed Halloween!

 I've had this Northwoods rubber stamp for a few years and it's never seen ink!  I thought it was perfect for this color challenge.  I stamped it in black ink and then sponged the orange ink then the purple around it.  I wanted some water droplets, but instead of using water I used Perfect Pearls biscotti mist.  I wish I would have used water because it washed out the black ink.  But it sure is shimmery!  My friend Cheryl bought the mist for me after we used it in a class we took and we really liked the look of it!  This card is a square 4.25 x 4.25 sized card.
 
You can see more from the JUGs design team and our guest, Julie Gearinger, on the Just Us Girls blog.
