Stampin' Up! Beautiful You - a few more ideas!

Here's a few more ideas for this set you can not only color and stamp the images "paper piecing" is really effective for this set too. Just stamp the image on some patterned paper, cut out the clothes and just pop them on your image stamped on cardstock! The bottom card i actually made quite a few copies of and sent them out to my customer and downline friends for a "Happy New Year" card! I don't think I will tire of this set soon but I'm not going to swamp my blog with it so the next post will be something Sue

Stampin' Up! Beautiful You with bleach and the new watercolour pencils!

I'm totally on the "Beautiful You" stamp set band wagon! This is a great set for beginners to advanced crafters, is very on trend and extremely versatile. I stamped this image on Sahara Sand cardstock and then bleached the inside of the dancing lady image with an aqua-painter and some general household bleach. Once it dried I coloured it with the new watercolor pencils and an aqua painter, let it dry again and bingo! One tip is I tried it with Crumb Cake cardstock but the bleaching was a little tooo yellow to colour over but the Sahara Sand works fine. Then just mounted on some Peek a Boo Peach and Black to give it some pop! Thanks for looking!.......cheers Sue
