Beautiful You

One of my favorite stamps sets in the 2017 Occasions Catalog is the Beautiful You.  It has some great sentiments.  Below are two great card designs that are sure to brighten someone’s day.

 The dancing girl is stamped in Basic Gray Archival ink, and then using 2-step technique, her dress was stamped in Watermelon Wonder.  With some designer series paper, a few rhinestones and thick baker’s twine in Whisper White, you have a congratulations card.  

The girl with the umbrella was stamped in Basic Black Archival ink.  Watercolor pencils were used to color the image, and the water in the AquaPainter activated and softened the pencil lines.  The sentiment was stamped on a strip of vellum.  (The vellum was attached by sponging Multi-Purpose glue on the backside of the vellum.)  The card is embellished with a small white paperclip and some yellow baker’s twine, and a portion of a white doily pokes out behind the matting like a sunshine!  I just love these doilies!

Until next time, happy crafting!
