Just us Girls #397 - Trend Week

Dear Ones~
This week is Trend Week over at Just Us Girls, and our gal Chris has invited us to use powdered dyes on our card. This would be powdered inks such as Brushos or Color Burst.

Here is my card:
I have used Brushos here, they are all I have. Just sprinkled with green and turquoise and then spritzed. The flower is a new stamp I just got from Heartfelt Creations called Classic Petunia Bouquet. It has a companion die, so that's what I used to cut the image. I colored it with Derwent Watercolor Pencils. Haven't used them in forever. The image was stamped on watercolor paper. The patterned strip behind the flowers is from a Sizzix embossing folder, and I'm sorry but I don't know the name.

Here are the Ingredients:
Michael's 110 lb Turquoise Card Stock
GKD Ivory Card Stock
Tim Holtz Watercolor Paper
Green and Turquoise Brushos
Heartfelt Creations Classic Petunia Bouquet Stamp
GKD Wild Blossoms Stamp for Greeting
SU Basic Black Ink
Derwent Watercolor Pencils
Sizzix Embossing Folder
Buttermilk Crystal Drops

Please visit the JUST US GIRLS blog to see the wonderful examples that our June Guest Designer Estelle and the rest of the team have made this week.
