Just Us Girls Saturday Challenge

It's Saturday and that means time for another Just Us Girls Saturday Challenge!! This week we have an amazing sponsor: JustRite Stampers®

Here is a little something about JustRite Stampers:

JustRite Stampers has a huge collection of Christmas and holiday stamp sets from which to choose. Their entire collection can be viewed here. They also offer the full line of Memento full-sized ink pads and now a selection of 96 expertly-chosen Copic Sketch markers which may be purchased as singles, trios or quads! The number one question people have about Copic markers is which colors will work together nicely to give a great shading of color. Now the JustRite design team has done all the work for you -- their quad and trio sets are designed so that you can be assured they will work together to give you a perfect blending group! JustRite has a great 2-page reference guide you can download here.

This week JustRite has offered some amazing prizes to one lucky, randomly selected participant this week...

How totally awesome is that?? You HAVE to play along! This week is technique challenge week and the technique it the cracked glass technique!

You can find the tutorial for this fun technique HERE .

Here is what I came up with using the Groovy Snowmen and Christmas Nested Frames set.

Close up of my "cracked glass"

You can apply some ink over the cracks which would seep onto the paper for a more antique look. I tried that a bit but I don't' think it worked very well, maybe a little bit. Then I was worried about messing up my nice cracks so I left it alone. This was seriously the first time I did this technique but love it, very cool!


How to play: You need to upload your project for this week's challenge to your online blog or public photo gallery. Leave a link that goes directly to your project in the Inlinkz form at the bottom of the JUGS post. If you upload to online galleries, please also use the keyword or tag, JUGS50. After you post to Inlinkz you can also leave a comment here.
Deadline to be considered for the weekly "Chic of the Week" is 9:00 PM EST on Thursday, September 16, 2010. The Inlinkz form will close at that time. Our top pick "Chic of the Week" will be announced on the following Friday morning.

Be sure to swing by the Jugs DT as I know they worked hard on their cracked glass creations and will have something beautiful to share with you!
