Just Us Girls #397

Have you tried Brushos, Color Bursts or any of the powders that make such fabulous designs when you add water?  Now is the time to get them out and make a card for Just Us Girls because that's what our host Chris is asking for this week.
I did mine a little differently.  I took a large piece of multi-media paper and sprayed it with spray starch.  I sprinkled on the Brushos and watched them move and spread, spraying a little more starch and sprinkling a little more powder where needed.  Then I covered the entire paper with plastic wrap wrinkling it up and letting it dry overnight.  I meant to take a picture of the paper when I pulled the plastic wrap off but I forgot.  I die cut flowers, laying them in strategic places to get the best color and this is the result.

The sentiment is from Essentials by Ellen.  I had a lot of paper left after cutting an A2 size panel so I cut more flowers and made another card.

For this one I cut a stitched square from cream cardstock and stamped the sentiment from MFT in Cup O' Joe.

The Design Team and guest designer Estelle have made some wonderful cards for your inspiration.  Head on over to the Just Us Girls blog to check them out, then make a card of your own to enter in the gallery.  You may be chosen Chic of the Week.

See you there!
