Just Us Girls #527 - Trend Week

I'm the hostess at Just Us Girls for Trend Week, and this is what I chose.
Using a black background can really make any images you place on it really pop.  I chose this trend because I wanted to use my NBUS Altenew metallic watercolors.
The Adore You flowers from Altenew were arranged on black watercolor paper and embossed in copper.  I had to play around a bit to get the color on without obliterating the lines of the flowers but you can see how well the paint works on black.  I ended up adding spatters in the leaf color and a sentiment from the same set.

The Design Team and our guest Vicky Hayes have a variety of cards with black backgrounds to inspire you to enter our challenge.  You may be our Chic of the Week with a chance to be a future guest designer.
