Just Us Girls #401 - Trend Week

Hi everyone!  This week is Trend Week at Just Us Girls.  Nancy chose ink blending, which is oh so hot right now in stampland!
 
I was excited about this challenge because I just received the new colors of Distress Oxide inks and couldn't wait to break them open.  I love the new colors that were released.  On this card, I started with picked raspberry, twisted citron, and peacock feathers blended on white cardstock.  I used this new die on another piece of white cardstock, leaving a spot for the sentiment, and adhered it to the inked background.  I die cut the sentiment and stamped "friend".  The heart is one of the pieces from the flowers colored with a copic marker.  This panel is mounted on a melon mambo cardstock mat then that is mounted on the base with fun foam.  I sprayed the panel with Spectrum Noir shimmer and added Nuvo Crystal Drops in green, pink, and blue.  I'm pretty happy with this card.  It came out just as I pictured!  That doesn't happen too often.  :-)
 
You can see more from the JUGs design team and our July guest on the JUGs blog.

This is a really beautiful card Lisa. Lovely colour combination and great finish with the different coloured flower centres.

If I had only waited another week or so I would have gotten this group of Oxides instead! Still bummed about that! Maybe at Christmas I will leave a hint to my family! LOL Your card is Stupendous! I am going to have to get out my cover plates and give this a try! Love Love Love it!

Great blending with those Oxide inks and I love the floral die cut background is so cool. I really was trying to resist getting the new Oxide colors, but after seeing this I think I need them now.

After seeing this I want those new colors even more, Lisa. Your card is so lovely.

Well this is just fabulous, that is all!! I love the idea of mounting the die cut over the blended background. That is just genius!!!!
