Beautiful You

A fellow Stampin' Up!® demonstrator and friend has recently had a fall and I wanted her to know I was thinking of her by sending a card. I decided to get my inspiration from a couple of challenges and decided on Just Add Ink #342..."Just Add N"
 
and HLS January Watercolour Challenge.


With these two challenges in mind I used the new "Beautiful You" stamp set. I love this set with its gorgeous images, sentiments and fonts.

 
I started with a piece of Watercolour Paper and stamped my image in Basic Black Archival Ink then I used an Aqua Painter with Sweet Sugarplum for the dress and Night of Navy for the umbrella. The sentiment is also stamped in the Basic Black Archival Ink and the Sweet Sugarplum Enamel Shape just finishes it off!
 
 
I used Marina Mist to watercolour around the image and the strip of DSP down the side is from the Playful Palette DSP Stack.
 
Thanks for stopping by today.

  6. Such a beautiful card - it's telling a story - she has an umbrella but the rain is misty like she's heading somewhere into the distance. I could look at this image all day. Wonderful card. Thank you for joining us at the HLS Watercolor challenge. Jenny x

  7. Greetings, Angela! Just lost in the beautiful story this sweet card sends. And your coloring technique gives the sketchy shape a soft message of hope that's lovely. Beautiful, too, is the way you isolated the sentiment up top to give the gorgeous figure room to dream. So glad you joined us for the very 1st watercolor challenge at HLS!
