Just Us Girls #376 - Trend Week

Hi friends!  This week over at Just Us Girls we are stamping all over!  Bobby chose a great challenge for our Trend Week.  We are seeing lots of small stamps being used to stamp a background.
I saw that Papertrey Ink is releasing a new paisley set, and it got me thinking about this paisley set I have from WPlus9.  I stamped the paisley patterns and some flowers on Bristol smooth white cardstock in Versamark and embossed them with white embossing powder.  Then I sponged yellow and blue Distress inks in different spots around the paper.  The sentiment was die cut four times from black cardstock and layered together.  I also die cut the shadow of the word in vellum and layered it under the black word.  I mounted it on black cardstock then onto a white base.  Sequins and some Spectrum Noir shimmer on the die cut were the finishing touches.
I chose my color scheme from this week's Color Throwdown challenge.
You can see more from the JUGs design team and our guest on the JUGs blog.

Paisley. I used to love paisley fabric but haven't thought about it in a long time. This looks terrific, Lisa, very Springlike, and that layered sentiment really pops.

I am such a fan of white embossing and then water coloring over. You have done it beautifully here, and I love your choice of colors. This is a beautiful card, I really, really like it!

I love those white embossed paisleys with the soft, blended Distress Inks. Your sentiment really pops with the black and depth.
