SUO 165 New Stuff, New Year- Beautiful You

Hi Friends!   

For my quick CAS card, I decided to use the brand new Occasions Mini Stamp Set, Beautiful You along with the Timeless Textures Stamp Set (from the Idea Book and Catalog).

If you have not had a chance to stop by the SU-Only Challenge site to check out the rest of the Design Team projects or the other challenge sites, I hope you will do so- wonderful inspiration from all!

This was an extremely easy card to create:

1). Ink the Beautiful You image with Stampin’ Archival Basic Black Ink and stamp onto Whisper White cardstock.

2). Using Stampin’ Write Markers- Flirty Flamingo, Pool Party and Smoky Slate with an AquaPainter™, add color to the image.  FYI- I use a silicone mat, scribble the ink onto the mat and pick it up with the AquaPainter™.  Just be careful not to “work” the area too much since the Whisper White cardstock will start to “pill”.

3). Add additional color with the markers directly to the images and use the AquaPainter™ to soften the edges.

4). Ink one of the scribbly wash images from Beautiful You to add additional Pool Party to the area below the dancing image and area for the sentiment.

5). Ink the Beautiful You sentiment with Stampin’ Archival Basic Black Ink and stamp.
6). Add a bit of splatter with the small splatter stamp from Timeless Textures (I inked the stamp with the Pool Party and Smoky Slate SU! markers).

7). Trim the panel, mount onto Flirty Flamingo cardstock, trim again and mount onto Pool Party cardstock before trimming once more and mounting onto the Extra Thick Whisper White card base.

8). Add shimmer to her dress and hat with Clear Wink of Stella® to finish off the card.

I do have to say that this was not my favorite stamp set when I first saw it. It is growing on me thanks to your card and others like it! I like the way you let this image stand on it's own and kept it sweet and simple! Thanks for playing along with us at Create with Connie and Mary!
