Beautiful You

So I had this idea for a quick and easy card using one of my favorite sets – Beautiful You!  I wanted to do a ‘watercoloring’ kind of card and since I’m not all that good at watercoloring I used the technique where you wet the paper (LOVE using the Shimmery White for this) then stamping an image (I used one from Happy Celebrations) and let it fun for that watercolor look!  Although this is a quick and easy look…you do have to make sure your ‘watercoloring’ is nice and dry before you do do the stamping on top of it!

Here’s the details…

  • Shimmery White – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Shimmery White – 3 3/4 x 5, wet the paper and stamp the one image from Happy Celebrations in Flirty Flamingo, Peek-a-boo Peach, Daffodil Delight, Cucumber Crush, Pool Party (and finish with Flirty Flamingo again).  Set aside and let dry (I waited over night).
  • Stamp image and greeting using Memento Black, add panel to card front using dimensionals
  • Take the backing  off 5 small Perfect White Accents and add using Tombow Glue

I’m on a roll with QUICK AND EASY!
