Just Us Girls #393

It's Trend Week at Just Us Girls and Sue has picked one of the hottest things going: Distress Oxides.  If you don't have them don't worry.  You can use your regular Distress Inks to make a background.
I have the Oxides and they blend beautifully on Bristol Board so that's what I used.

I originally tried the technique where you mist your stamps before putting them to inked paper to remove some of that ink.  I don't know if my stamps were too small or too wet but I didn't like the results so I overstamped the images from TT with Distress Ink.  The sentiment is from PTI and to balance it's Onyx Black, I added a strip of black cs to the bottom.

Our guest designer Kathie Durgan and the rest of my fabulous team mates at Just Us Girls have cards waiting for you to peruse and be inspired by. We hope you will make a card for a chance to be our Chic of the Week and possible guest designer in the future.
