Just Us Girls #430 - Word Week

Hey everyone!  It's Word Week at Just Us Girls and Maria chose the word BALLOONS.
So many choices of balloons in my collection to use!  I wanted to try this MFT balloon stencil and distress oxide inks.  I used ink colors in rainbow order.  After inking them through the stencil, I die cut the panel with a wonky stitches die.  Then I drew in the strings with a black marker and ruler.  For the sentiment, I inked up a piece of cardstock in the same colors of ink and die cut the word.  I adhered it to the panel then stamped the happy above it.  Gems and shimmer spritz finished it off.
You can see more from our JUGs design team and March guest, Stef Perry, on the JUGs blog.

Those balloons are fantastic, Lisa, so translucent and colorful. Adding the die cut sentiment in the same colors ties it all together.
