Just Us Girls #350 - Word Week

Happy 4th of July weekend to my American friends!  It's word week over at Just Us Girls and Maria has chosen the word "summer".
I wanted to make a background with sunbeams, and chose this stencil from Memory Box.  I inked the back of it with three Distress inks and spritzed it with water then laid it on a piece of watercolor paper.  I then die cut the word from this piece and from black fun foam.  I layered the two and set it aside.  Using my mini MISTI, I stamped the sentiment.  (I messed up my original watercolor piece with my stamping, so the MISTI came in handy for try #2!)  I layered everything on black cardstock and added sequins.  I covered the die cut with shimmer and glossy accents for some shine.
You can see more from the JUGs design team and our July guest on the JUGs blog.
