Just Us Girls #323 TREND WEEK

Hi!  It's a new challenge at Just Us Girls and for TREND WEEK Lisa has challenged us to use SEQUINS on our projects, so here goes...
Please visit our blog~Just Us Girls~ for a look at some really inspirational cards! Then see if you can find the time to create and show us what you've been up to! Here's mine..
A few weeks ago when we had a one layer card challenge I started this card and never finished it. My card base is water color paper. I used Archival Black to stamp Hurly and Burly from Whipper Snapper Designs onto it.  Then I stamped the image onto some maskikng paper (from Simon Says Stamp) and sponged Pool Party around where the image was for some background shading. I also worked a bit into the corners of the card.  Then I pulled up the mask and used my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens to color the Image and a brush with water to move the color around a bit. After that, I got very brave, dipped my fingers into the water and 'threw' it at my card the way Tammy Tutterow taught us in class. I dabbed up the water afterward with a piece of paper towel and it left some white spots.  

After that, I just added my sentiment (Paper Smooches), stickles, and sequins and it was done!  I will probably end up using this as a belated Christmas card since I often get some of ours (many!) out late!
I hope you'll be able to join us in the challenge this week! YOu have until Thursday evening, December 17 at 9pm ET to add your card to our Mr. Linky on the blog.
Thanks for visiting!
