Just Us Girls #406 - Trend Week

Dear Ones!
This week is TREND WEEK over at Just Us Girls, and I'M THE HOST!!!! I have chosen the trend SHINE. Just put some shine on your card, be it foil, metal, or even foiled card stock. Anything shiny.
Here's my Card:
 I chose to do some foiling with gel medium for my shine. First I sponged with the background with Oxide Inks, then I stenciled the pattern with gel medium. After it dried I applied gold foil from Heidi Swapp and ran the piece through my laminator. I wish the photo showed the shine better. I don't know why I chose SHINE for my challenge when it's awful to photograph. The greeting is one from Gina K. It's printed with toner so I could run that through the laminator with foil as well.

Here are the Ingredients:
GKD Innocent Pink Card Stock
Stash Gold Foil Card Stock
GKD White Card Stock
Oxide Inks In:
*Spiced Marmalade
*Worn Lipstick
*Fossilized Amber
Crafter's Workship Mini Cell Theory Stencil
Windsor Newton Gloss Gel Medium
SU Layered Circles Dies
GKD Sending Love STV Kit for Greeting
Heidi Swapp Gold Foil
Nuvo Jewel Drops
Stash Gold Ribbon

Please visit the JUST US GIRLS blog to see the wonderful examples that our August Guest Designer Darnell and the rest of the team have made this week. And remember, 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, and I hope to see you there.
