Another Beautiful You

Hello, crafty friends. I'm finally back from my absence of posting.  My husband had surgery and I have been taking care of him.  Things are improving and he is finally getting around much better.  Thank goodness.  Family first, stamping second. :)

Today, I am sharing another card I made using the Beautiful You stamp set for this weeks challenge at Sunday  Stamps!  The Beautiful You stamp set is the type of stamp set that once you start creating with it- its difficult to put away.  There are so many fun sentiments to match the fabulous sketch images.

Here's what I made for this weeks color challenge at Sunday Stamps!.

I love to water color, and this stamp set makes water coloring a breeze- if you ask me.  The Stampin' UP! colors I chose to work with for this weeks challenge are: Sahara Sand, Pear Pizzazz, Pool Party, Lost Lagoon and Calypso Coral.  Here's challenge #147:

Can you see where I used Pool Party ink? I created the sky using the smaller of the 2 solid images by first stamping off onto a piece of scratch paper before stamping onto my card stock.  It was super fun creating the sky this way.  :)

Here's the images in the stamp set.  The arrow shows you the image I used to create the sky.
