What's TRENDING at Just Us Girls?

It's that time of the month for our
and our Host MARIA has chosen Watercolouring.
Now I had a LOT of fun with this one
even though as you will see it was a little messy
  My craft mat cleaned up better than my fingers.
Here's what my mat look like after I spritzed with water
and inked up my watercolour paper.
I dried most of it off with my heat gun but then decided
to leave it overnight and finish it off the next day.
Here are the products I used -
Basic coloured card stock as my base
and embossed frame which is by Stampin' Up
and slightly popped.
Black for matting
The beautiful flower is from
Inspired by Stamping - Elegant Flowers
and heat embossed in black to the watercolour background 
 popped for dimension.
Tag - JustRite
Sentiment - GKD
Several coloured inks
Kaisercraft ribbon slightly melted with heat gun
and finished with a few pearls.
Don't forget to pop over to Our Blog to
check out what our Guest Louise and
the Team have created with this fun challenge.
Hope to see you there.
