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.
