Ink Spray and Smash

Good Morning!
This weeks Just Us Girls challenge is being hosted by Maria and she has chosen this really cool technique called Ink, Spray and Smash which can be found here on Splitcoast Stampers.  I had never tried this before and wasn't exactly sure how my card would turn out because each piece that I did looked Sooo different even though I was using the same colors (that's the fun of it).  I was so happy the way my card turned out!  I decided my piece was to pretty to cover up so I made it the focal point of my card.  I cut it into strips and matted it with a color that I pulled from my smashed piece.  I hope you give this technique a try!!!  I would love to see what you come up with!

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, JUGS41.
