Beautiful You in Watercolors

Beautiful You in Watercolors, by Krista Thomas, www.regalstamping.com

I had so much fun making this card!  I started with a piece of watercolor paper and some Stampin’ Up watercolor pencils.  I chose four colors, Bermuda Bay, Old Olive, Pacific Point and Daffodil Delight, scribbling them lightly over the watercolor paper in a diagonal direction.  Then I took my aqua painter and went over the panel in the same diagonal direction as before, blending the colors beautifully.

I used my heat tool to quickly dry the panel and then stamped the lady from Beautiful You with Black Staz On ink.  Her dress & hat were then colored in with the Pacific Point watercolor pencil and then blended with the aqua painter.

I am thrilled with the quality of Stampin’ Up’s watercolor pencils and have enjoyed the results that I’ve gotten with them.  If you haven’t experienced them yet, you’re missing out on a great product.  And if you’d like to give them a try, just click on the product picture below and order some for yourself!  You deserve a set!!

The little black curly-cues were cut with a die from  Cheerful Tags and I thought they worked well as accents above and below the label shaped window.

Everyday Hero Tag With Partial Embossing Technique

Are you looking for a cute way to present a bottle of wine to a friend or co-worker?  Then look no farther, because today I am sharing a cute tag that’s designed to hang from the neck of a bottle, whether that’s wine, soda or something else.

Everyday Hero Wine Tag, by Krista Thomas, www.regalstamping.com

This Everyday Hero Tag with Partial Embossing Technique was made with the Cheerful Tags Framelits Dies, from the Stampin’ Up! 2016 Holiday Catalog and is now on the Carry-Over List, meaning that it’s still available for purchase at the time of this posting.  It is shown in Tempting Turquoise and Pacific Point card stock.  The tag base has a hole in the top half which fits right over the bottle.  How cool is that?

The saying “Best. Guy. Ever.” is from Suite Sentiments and I used the Partial Embossing Technique as described in my previous post from February 24.  The ink colors are Tempting Turquoise and Pacific Point, along with gold embossing.

For this project, I used the super hero character from Everyday Hero stamp set and colored him in with colored pencils.

See you next time!
