I have been sharing lots of projects with the ‘Beautiful You’ set this past week. When I first started seeing ideas with this set on Pinterest I noticed that some of the dresses were different. I was curious and went investigating further. I thought I would share with you today how it can be done so you can create more with this set.
I have put together a tutorial for you.
CHANGING THE DRESS LINE.
1. You can do either of two things. a) draw over the top part of the lady with the Black Stampin’ Write Marker or what I have done b) Place the stamp on the table top facing up. Mask the skirt area with a Post It note or piece of scrap paper. Leaving the stamp on the table ink up the stamp with the Black StazOn inkpad. I have used StazOn as you will be watercolouring the image.
2. Stamp the image onto Thick Whisper White, Shimmery White card or Watercolor Paper as you will be watercolouring it.
3. With the Black Marker draw a skirt line that you would like. If you prefer use a pencil and then go back over it with the Marker. You could create any style, short or long.
4. To Watercolour this I used the Real Red Watercolor Pencil, colour along the lines of the dress and the hat. Using the Aquapainter blend over the colour. You can build up the colour as you desire by going over the area but allow it to dry a little before adding more colour.
Assemble your card as you like.
To create this card I cut the image with the Layering Oval Framelits cutting a larger one with the Red Glimmer Paper. The sentiment was stamped in black and cut with a Framelit from the Stylish Stems. Using the Duet Banner Punch I cut a banner from the Red Glimmer Paper and cut it down in the centre to adhere behind the sentiment.
To finish I looped around some Copper Thread and raised that off some Whisper White mat which had been embossed with the Falling Petals Embossing Folder. Base card is Real Red.
Hope that was helpful for you. You can use this idea to change different stamps. Go and experiment.
