Black Magic! (With JUGS)

Happy Weekend! BEFORE we go any further - let me share out newest secret with you - we chose our new Design Team members. YES memberS! Thanks to all who answered our DT call! It was a tough call and in the end we had two gals who were 1 vote apart! SO we decided more was better and we have asked TWO gals to join our team.

PLEASE join me in welcoming our TWO new design team girls:
Lynn Magnan AND Vicki Dutcher

Ok let's get down to business. It's time for a new technique challenge with Just Us Girls. This week our lovely hostess is Andrea and she has a great technique to try - it's called Black Magic and you can find a link to the tutorial for it on SCS if you click HERE.

This was new for me and I will tell you that I had more than one go at it - It helps to use a "solid" image (in my opinion) to do this technique. Here's what I finally came up with. You have to tryst me - it's VERY striking in person - a bit "flat" looking in the photo but it's very vivid and quite lovely in real life. I will use this technique again. Thanks Andrea.


SO gals - get your groove on - get your stamps out and play along with Just Us Girls this week.  Please visit our AWESOME design team (my side bar) for some additional inspiration. Please be SURE you stop and visit our Featured Designer, Maureen Plut - she is doing some fantastic projects with us.

Have a blessed weekend. For those of you who get Columbus Day off - enjoy!
Hugs n Smiles.

Love this card. Could you tell me where you got the "Hope" stamp from? I work for a homeless shelter called the House of Hope and would love to use this on some things for our residents. Thanks so much.
