Chic of the Week # 393

I was really impressed with all of the amazing cards this week for our Trend Challenge!  You all deserve a round of applause.   There were so many different takes on this challenge and I even learned a few new techniques which I can't wait to try.

It was a very tough decision, but our newest Chic of the Week is Mimi!


I love how she used the modeling paste and inks together and her design is so cute, too.
Congratulations, Mimi!  Please email me at qvande@hotmail.com for your Chic of the Week badge.

Don't forget to come back tomorrow for our Color Challenge.  Judy has picked out a beautiful combo for us to play with.

Just Us Girls #393 - Trend Week

There seems to be a lot of the new Distress Oxide Inks from Time Holtz backgrounds being created around blogland.  My challenge is to do just that, create a background with Oxide or Distress inks, or any other ink that you have to achieve a similar effect.
Some examples of techniques:  Magic Stencil TechniquePinterestSplitcoaststampers.
