Just Us Girls #393 - Trend Week

 Dear Ones!
This week it's TREND WEEK over at Just Us Girls, and our gal Sue has invited us to make a background using inks, Distress Oxide, Distress or otherwise. Here is my card:

I chose to use Oxides in Wilted Violet and Faded Jeans. I sponged the inks onto a piece of GKD Foilable Image Sheet, placed a piece of silver foil over the sheet when I was done sponging, and ran it through my laminator. The result is this beautiful silver foiled background. It's really stunning in real life - foiling is so difficult to photograph. The medallion is from Stampin' Up, a multi-step stamp set called Make a Medallion. I stamped it in the same Oxide Ink colors as the background.

Here are the Ingredients:
GKD White and Vibrant Violet Card Stock
Stash Silver Foiled Card Stock
GKD Foil Image Sheet from the Sending Love STV Kit
Wilted Violet and Faded Jeans Oxide Inks
SU Make a Medallion Stamp Set
GKD Fabulous Frame Stamp for Greeting
GKD Silver Embossing Powder
SU Nesting Circles Dies

Please visit the JUST US GIRLS blog to see the wonderful examples that our May Guest Designer  Kathie and the rest of the team have made this week. And remember, if you win Chic of the Week in any of our May challenges, you will be in the running to be chosen as our Guest Designer for the month of July!!   Good luck, and I hope to see you there.
