Coffee and a " Beautiful You" watercolored card.

Happy Monday everyone I do hope your rested and raring to go !!!! .... Todays coffee and a card was a pure joy to make and I got to mess about with the Stampin' Up! Aqua painters. I do love cards where you can use different ink techniques to get a great look as no two are ever exactly the same. Also it adds an artistic flair to your cards.

The Beautiful you stamp set is a must for and stampers collection, the elegant ladies and inspirational sentiments go to make fantastic cards or projects. I had a blue day today so we have Night of navy and marina mist . Nice water theme colours for my water coloured card. Paired with Whisper white you are guaranteed a perfect match. The feint ladies in the background were stamped using Smokey slate with the first layer of ink stamped of to give a lighter colour to the fires. This then ensures the focal dancing lady stand "out from the crowd" . What a fantastic theme and easily replicated with minimal supplies.

There is a Youtube tutorial to accompany this project so get comfy , grab a brew and click the link below. Have fun and... Happy stamping xxx Amanda
