Just Us Girls #449 - Chic of the Week

It looks like watercolor backgrounds are a popular technique and definitely a trend.  We had a lot of wonderful entries at Just Us Girls this week and I want to thank everyone who made a card for the challenge.  The backgrounds ranged from simple washes to intricate paintings and everything in between.  In the end I had to choose this as my winning card.

Congratulations, Julie!  You are our Chic of the Week.

Your watercolor background is so unique with it's pixelated look.  Even the flower is done that way.  I am amazed at how you added the colors to shade and highlight in the individual squares that you drew on yourself.  This is one spectacular card.  Please contact me at bobbarah at gmail dot com for your winner's badge.

We hope you all come back tomorrow to see what Lisa has in store for the Color Challenge.

Just Us Girls Challenge #448~Chic of the Week

WOW! Thank you to everyone who shared their 'citrus sensations' in the Just Us Girls gallery this week. From zesty-and-zingy colours, to luscious limes, lemons and oranges, to refreshing lemonades, martinis and've shared an array of dazzling delights. I think a "couple" of new stamp sets have made their way to my wish list; several new design/technique ideas have joined my 'must try' list, too!

This week, the Chic of the Week is Teresa, from Whimsical Card Studio.

I'm absolutely crushing over her trio of citrus-themed cards featuring an eye-catching split panel technique and smile-making sentiments. Gorgeous, all! Bonus: she's created a video for us to see the magic unfold! Congratulations and thank you, Teresa, for sharing your talents with us!

Please contact me (Carol - cmayne at for your blog badge. You'll also be in the running to be our September Guest Designer!

Thank you again to everyone who joined the challenge!

Inviting you to come back tomorrow to play along in the
