Beautiful You


A last minute decision. Thats what this card is. I wanted to participate in
a challenge I saw - Addicted to Stamps and More where they have the most amazing
inspiration photo and had an idea then had to do other stuff and forgot. Till tonight,
came home from all day babysitting and was looking through challenges and there it was.

Only 2 hours to go and I had forgotten though the idea was there. Went looking at
my stamps but the one I was thinking of using was wrong for what I wanted so I
went through my mountain of NBUS and found this wonderful stamp and I think its
a combination of Simon Says and Winnie & Walter but will have to confirm
later. Only one hours left so enough talking and I better post and then add other challenges
in the morning.


Stamped on watercolour card stock then painted with Zigs and lots and lots of 
water then a bit of pushing colours into other sections to give a nice mix.
 For a card that I only thought of an hour ago it has
come together quite nicely I think. Added the die cut sentiment 'beautiful'
from Concord & 9th which I cut out of the coloured panel and another four times
in white then layered them up and a little heart as it is all about love.


Challenges




NBUS item and hidden word die cut.







Squeezed in with a couple of hours to spare.
Stamped, watercolour zigs and diet inset sentiment.






Thank you so much for coming to visit and I hope you come again soon.

As soon as I saw this I knew it was for the Addicted to Stamps challenge - it is a perfect reflection of their photo. The colouring is gorgeous and the camoflaged sentiment is great.
