How was your 2016? Was it like mine? Like roller coaster & full of up’s & down’s?
Being that 2016 wasn’t my best ever year on record I’m determined to make 2017 better & I’ve started in a positive way by having a good clean up.
I came across these 2 watercolour backgrounds that I made early in December & rather than throw them out, I have repurposed them & created these 2 cards.
I have simply stamped an image & a sentiment from the Beautiful You stamp set by Stampin’ Up! & then added some shimmer with my Clear Wink of Stella pen. I think it creates a lovely rain like sheen on the umbrella & “the ground”. I also added little dabs of it to create rain drops. It looks super pretty & effective when you see it in person & watch the light play across the paper.
I’m very happy with the results, though I can’t decide which one I like better.
I’ll be back on deck with all things Stampin’ Up! by next week, however I’ve got a few more days of holidays until then.
Don’t forget that the Occasions & Sale-A-Bration catalogues start tomorrow (4th January 2017). Simply jump online anytime to order your awesome new Stampin’ Up! goodies.
Much love, K xo
