I would like to welcome, Colleen Foelker, as our Guest Designer for the month of August. Welcome, Colleen! Please visit her blog and leave some love.
Water, water everywhere! The background is one I actually made for a Make It Monday at PTI but got extremely busy and never made the card. I thought it would make a great water background. The technique is called Reverse Stenciling. I picked a stencil from Jim Holtz called Flourish Layering Stencil. I applied ink to the stencil with a brayer and misted it with water. Then I placed my card stock on top of the stencil and pressed until the ink transferred. I added some waves called "What the Doodle" and my sweet little boy paper doll all dressed up to play. I sprayed shimmer spray on the water and waves for some sparkle.
Please visit the Just Us Girls blog to see the beautiful cards the rest of the team and our GD, Colleen, have made this week. I hope you will be inspired and play along.
If you win Chic of the Week in any of our August challenges, you will be in the running to be chosen as our Guest Designer for the month of October. Good luck!
