Just Us Girls Inspiration Challenge!

It's Saturday and time for a little JUST US GIRLS CHALLENGE!  This week is photo inspiration week.  



So I have been playing with Washi this week thanks to the Paper Crafts open auditions for Gallery Idol.  

Here is what I did for this challenge:


I've also been messing around with watercoloring which is what I did with these flowers and my distress inks.  The black and white background is the washi.  I just covered a scrap piece of white paper to create it.  Not pictured is the Tim Holtz watercolor paper I used with the flowers and Swiss Dots embossing folder.  The black ribbon is random from my stash and it's grosgrain ribbon.

Supplies:


Be sure to swing on by the Just Us Girls blog to see what the entire team cooked up and go leave them some love!

That's all for now!
