JUST US GIRLS #356 - Trend Week

Hello crafty peeps! It's Trend Week at JUST US GIRLS. Ina is hosting this week and she's picked water coloring as your prompt this time around! Here's what I made:

and the inside:

I smooshed a few blue ink pads on my craft mat, spritzed with water, and made the background panel. The polaroid die cut I've had for at least six months, but I've just now used it. *koff - hoarder - koff* I cut it twice, from black cs and sliver glitter paper, then adhered slightly off to get a shadow effect. I found some glittery dimensional snowflake stickers and popped those on as well.

I know you'll be itching to play along this week, as water coloring is still a major trend right now! Just link up your project at Just Us Girls so we can admire it! For even more inspiration, please do check out what my teammies and our Guest Designer, Colleen, have created for your viewing pleasure! Thanks for visiting and take care!
