Hi all! The Just Us Girls challenge is back into high gear after our short holiday hiatus. This week is our word week and Ina appropriately chose the word NEW.
I made this card the day before New Year's Eve. I was thinking about the celebration in Times Square in NYC, so I pulled out this NYC skyline die that I just had to have. I die cut it from black cardstock then went to work creating the night sky. I googled night skies to use as a guide. I started with a light blue ink, then picked up a darker blue. I then used a purple and some black ink to darken the sky. I left a lighter spot where the Statue of Liberty would be. Then I stamped and embossed the fireworks and the sentiment. I spritzed it with shimmer spritz. You can sort of see it on the black cardstock. I'm crushing on this card!
You can see more from the JUGs design team and our January guest on the JUGs blog.
