Just Us Girls 'Word Week'

Hello and Welcome to my Saturday Post for Just Us Girls
Angie is Hosting Word Week and chose Stripes.

April is upon us and we have a New Guest Designer.
Welcome to Claire Apostoloff

As you see I took a very different approach to using stripes
by cutting a smooched piece of watercolour paper
into three strips. Backed them with black card stock.
My die cut is from Ultimate Crafts Wintertide Branches
I got the idea for this card from Julie Gearinger Here
although I have done similar in the past.
Flicked a few splatters and grounded my tree with
Nuvo Ebony Black Drops
Added my Happy Birthday sentiment from 
Happy Little Stampers .
Adhered to white background and black card base.

Pop over and see what our April Guest Claire
and the Team created and add yours to
The Gallery.
You could be Chic of the Week
 and be our Guest in June.
Thanks for popping in

You know I love smooshy backgrounds and yours shows off beautifully with the black borders, Ina. That graphic tree was a great addition.

Such a unique way to use the stripes Ina. I love the way you've taken the branches over the side of the inky panels!
