JUGS 145

 

Welcome to JUGS technique week.  This week's challenge is to make a card using the faux window technique.  The Gina K technique video can be found here.

I have never done this technique before and found I do not have a lot of scenery type stamps....rut row....  Thankfully, after digging around a bit I found this wonderful PTI Branching out set - phew.  Next challenge, no brayer, so did sponging instead.  Not a huge difference in my blues, but it is there, promise LOL!  After two roadblocks, kept things simple thereafter :)

Time to show me up on this technique and add your card to MrLinky over on the JUGS blog.  You never know, you could be the Chick of the Week :)  If you are using a public gallery use the keyword JUGS145.

The rest of the Design Team has some wonderful samples for your inspiration.  Hop on over and check them out.

Have a fabulous weekend!

Paper: Black, White, Glossy White
