Just Us Girls #153

 
This week's technique challenge is brought to us by Vick and it is Stamped Line Art.  Basically, all you have to do is find a detailed image and stamp it - letting it do the talking :)   A great technique for a CAS card.  The link to the technique video can be seen here should you want to view it.

I pulled out an old CPS sketch and rotated it.  Had great fun using this Stampin' Up set that hasn't seen ink in some time.  The flower dress has always been a favorite of mine.  I "jacked it up" (as Randy on Say Yes to the Dress would say) by adding some black half pearls to the dress to make it stand out.

Kept to a black and white card as they make such a statement and I purposely omitted the sentiment so I have the flexibility of using it for various occasions (graduation card, wedding shower card, wedding card, black tie event - not that I go to them but one can always dream LOL !)

The rest of the Design Team has some great samples to get your inspiration going.  Just pop over to the JUGS blog for a peek at their wonderful creations/

We'd love to have you play along with us this week.  Simply create a card using this week's technique and link it to the JUGS blog and you may be selected as Chick of the Week :)

I think the family is going to have a relaxing weekend as soccer games don't begin until next weekend - phew!  Good thing, as the first week of school is now behind us, our ramped up schedule has come back full force and the early rising times have caused us all to be on the tired side.  A new school year has definitely begun!

Paper: Black and White

Pretty Card. The scallop trims and the Black & White Color theme is perfect for this card.
