Just Us Girls #397 - Trend Week

Hi friends!  The Trend Challenge over at Just Us Girls this week is to use powdered dyes. 
I haven't used these Color Burst powder dyes in a while, so I was happy for this challenge.  I decided to use three colors (yellow, crimson, and blue) and just go wild on a piece of watercolor paper.  I spritzed it with water and dried it with a heat tool.  Then I die cut it with this harlequin cover plate.  I also cut another piece of watercolor paper with the die and insert the watercolor piece into the frame.  I used Stick It so that the frame and pieces would stick to the black base.  I die cut the word die from black cardstock four times and stacked it.  I embossed the word "wishes" on vellum and adhered the die cut to it as well as the sequins.  There's shimmer on the die cut as well.
Because I die cut the cover plate twice, I was able to make two cards.  Here's the reverse of the first one.  Same design, different look.
And here they are side-by-side.  I have a few retirements to go to and I think these will be perfect for them.
You can see more from the JUGs design team and our June guest on the JUGs blog.

I love what you have done with your Color Burst powders! Beautiful designs. I love how you die cut and added all of those pieces into the frame, that takes a lot of patience and your results are well worth it!
