JUST US GIRLS #384 - Trend Week

Good morning friends and welcome! At JUST US GIRLS, Maria is your hostess for
Trend Week, and she's picked a most excellent trend - STENCILS!
I went and made a few tags using a couple of them:

I started out with a 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" piece of white cardstock, and spritzed it using a few
colors of Dylusions spray inks. I then sponges black soot DI over it using a couple stencils. I was able to cut out three tags from it. I stamped some fun snarky sentiment and a couple retro gals to add, and finished with some ribbon. 

Yep, So fun!

Now it's your turn. Break out those stencils and make something fun! Be sure to
link up at Just Us Girls so that we can admire it. Need more ideas? Well then, just 
visit the blogs of my teammies, and our Guest Designer, Nancy and leave them 
some bloggy love! 

Thanks for visiting. Have a wonderful day!
