Beautiful You

It’s a long time since I have fallen in love with any Stampin Up stamps but the new set called Beautiful You are sooo pretty.

Whilst home Clare and I had a great time using them but left all the cards with her.

So today I made some more for myself.  Both cards have been framed with doodling and a splatter stamp.

Extended her dress a little with a black fine liner pen and also added stripes and polka dots to it.

This card uses a different technique than above because she was first stamped with bleach then dragged the stamp a little before taking off the card.

Left it to dry naturally before over stamping with black ink.  Added some polka dots to the umbrella.  Next came the splattering with bleach to imitate raindrops.

 Bleach is such an effective medium to stamp with.

Both cards together.

    Hi Shirl,

    I agree that this new set from Stamping Up fabulous. I’ve seen so many beautiful cards made with them on Pinterest and here are two more. They are both completely different but both gorgeous. I really like your bleach spattering, it gives a great effect. I think I need to put these stamps on my wish list. Crafty hugs, Sandra x

    Hi Shirley. I love these images! What I love seeing just as much is how much fun you are having playing with them! These both have some things in common, yet look completely different. Great makes.

    Totally different look from one card to the other! The bleach stamping and dragging (a new technique to me!) looks great, it adds movement to the image and is really effective. Where do you get your Stampin’up producst Shirley, online or from a demonstrator? xx
