Just Us Girls #249 - Trend


For one of our new challenges over at Just Us Girls we are using TRENDS.  For our trend challenge this week, Cheryl choose - Woodgrain.  This look really is making a come back, it was pretty hot a couple of years ago, and has been showing itself recently again in blogland.  We are on it!

I used turquoise card stock, scored it and made my own woodgrain look using white pigment ink and brown, streaking it down the panel.  I used my MFT Thank You die-namic and layered it 4 times for the added depth.  I also used Hero Arts, Antique Flowers and Butterflies.

You don't have to make your own wood grain, I just did for fun. Pop over to Just Us Girls #249 to see the array of samples the Team has made using this week's trend.  We sure hope to see you play along!


Thanks for stopping by~
