Beautiful You by Stampin’ Up!
New Spring/Summer 2017 Catalogue & Sale-a-bration
Oh how exciting is it? Very very very! Not only is the new Spring/Summer 2017 catalogue available, it’s also the start of Sale-a-bration! SAB is Stampin’ Up!’s biggest promotion of the year! As a demonstrator, I was able to pre-order from the catalogue and earn SAB items in December. I’ve been having a play and I think my favourite new product has to be the watercolour pencils. They are fabulous. I’ve teamed them up with Beautiful You by Stampin’ Up! for today’s projects.
As I wanted to create a no line water colour image, I first stamped off on scrap paper before stamping on to watercolour paper. I used smoky slate as it’s a neutral colour and the Real Red and Pacific Blue watercolour pencils can be painted on much darker. Then I used an aqua painter to flick off the end of the pencils to get the splatter effect. I got the idea for this card from an Arttutor Brusho tutorial I had seen.
I think this one is my favourite, even though I messed the extended leg up a bit. You can see a hard water mark where I didn’t manage to blend the paint properly.
Aren’t they beautiful? Even if I do say so myself Lol!
