Welcome to this Thursday edition of the Happy Stampers Blog Hop. I am sharing a sneak peek of Beautiful You, from the upcoming 2017 Occasions Catalog from Stampin’ Up, available on January 4th.
And, if you follow the Happy Stampers, you know this week is a color challenge:
I fell in love with Beautiful You the minute I saw it at OnStage Atlanta in November! Is is such a cool set of stamps. I know you will love it, too. By now, you have probably seen it out on Pinterest, but I know you will see more of it very soon. You can use water coloring, as I did, or Stampin’ write Markers, or the new Watercolor Pencils available January 4th, to color in your images. I have seen some cards, though, with just the outline of the woman stamped that are just as beautiful as the colored in ones.
I stamped the image in Stazon Black ink onto Water Color paper. Once dry, I used my Dapper Denim and Aqua Painter to color the skirt and dress. Next, I water colored the hat with Emerald Envy. I left a little “shadow” of both colors to the left of the dress and hat, then colored a little on the ground with Emerald Envy.
The Beautiful You sentiment was stamped onto a panel of watercolor paper in Stazon Black ink. I then water colored with Emerald Envy over the larger words. Once it was dry, I used an oval Stitched Shapes Framelit Die to cut it out. The ribbon is 3/8″ Emerald Envy Silky Taffeta from the combo pack, on sale now for $4.50!
I used another of the sentiments from Beautiful You and stamped it also in Stazon Black ink. I added a little water color wash over it using some of the Emerald Envy and Dapper Denim inks again.
Card stock cuts in inches and products used are at the end of the post.
