Beautiful Day — SSOTHM

2020-02-17 - Beautiful Day

Hello my crafty friends!

Today’s card features the Beautiful Day Stamp Set from Stampin’ Up!  Each month I am going to choose one Stamp-set to feature. If there is a set that you would like to see featured, please let me know!

This set includes two chunky images of both a flower and a butterfly that are designed to show off your colouring skills (or lack thereof in my case!) I chose to make my own background paper by stamping the main image 6 times.  Wanting a softer look, I decided to use pencil crayons or “coloured pencils” for my American friends! I also used the clear glitter Wink of Stella on the main image just in the area where the darker purple is present.  Also, in retrospect, I would likely make my sentiment strip a little bit thinner, but overall, I’m happy with how this card turned out!

Beautiful Day SS 151257G

This is the artwork that is included in the stamp set and I can’t wait to try my hand at colouring the butterfly.  Perhaps a watercolour technique?  Hmmm, stay tuned!

The products I used to make this card are:
