Good morning all! We have a fun new challenge at JUST US GIRLS starting today. Nancy is your hostess for Trend Week and she's picked the Spotlighting Technique for you to play along with. I don't think I've ever tried this before now, but I'm certainly glad I did, since it was a lot of fun! Most of the ladies went with a floral theme. Me? I thought a big fish about to eat a little fish might be fun to spotlight. Here, look:
I'm (slowly) trying to use the stamps I've been hoarding for years. I think I scored this Dylusions set at Tuesday Morning for only $5.00 back in February, and it's the first time I've used it. The grungy alpha set I used I've had for over two years, still wrapped in cellophane. Gathering dust. I finally fixed that. (wink) The spotlighted circle is colored with Spectrum Noir markers. Then I decided it needed some subtle waves, so I pulled out a wave stencil and carefully sponged Mermaid Lagoon DI around the images.
This was a lot of fun to do, so I do hope you find some time to play along at Just Us Girls! Do yourself a favor and visit the blogs of my teammies to see their projects, and also our Guest Designer, Cornelia, and leave them some bloggy lovin! Remember, that if you are picked as Chic of the Week for any of our June challenges, you'll be in the running to be our Guest Designer for the month of August! Good luck and have fun!
