Color my world with family, friends and some time to be creative making cards!

Trend Week at JUGS!


Hello Friends,  Over at Just Us Girls Chris is our hostess and she asked us to use powdered Dyes on our card this week.  I am somewhat of a late bloomer when it comes to new trends and techniques in the card making world, so I do not own any powdered dyes- Magnet Nuance, Brushos or Color Bursts…. and to be honest I had to google what in the heck they were. LOL With that being said, instead of running to the store to purchase something for this challenge, I decided and hoped the team wouldn’t mind I searched around the studio to see what I could come up with to get that fun sunburst effect like I saw on some of the samples on the net.  I came across this bottle of Dylusions Ink Spray that of course I have had for EONS, and had to have for one reason or another. (You know you have some of those supplies too, that you aren’t sure why you purchased them!)   I decided it just might do the trick!  Hubby needed a thank you card for a co-worker at his school that helped in his Art class, and I wanted to make something special for her. I got out my favorite Paper Smooches Art set and some white embossing powder and a real paint brush and went to work. I heat embossed my paint tubes first on water color paper and then spritzed my paper with the ink spray. Then I took a paintbrush and flicked the ink to give it more a sunburst effect.  Added some black splatters and I was satisfied. The rest is pretty much straight forward.

Please come on over to JUGS and check out the rest of the teams work …it’s super colorful! Nanc’
