Beautiful You with the Watercolour Pencils

Hello there, hope you are having a lovely weekend? Yesterday I ran a Watercolour Pencil class with 8 lovely ladies. I have written this blog up before the actual event so I would love to say it went really really well! Here's hoping!

In the class I wanted to concentrate on the colouring techniques rather than the complexity of the cards, so the cards are all fairly simple makes, no fancy folds or anything like that kind of craft business!
 This card is similar to one I made a few weeks ago with multiple stamping of the stylish lady from Beautiful You, one of the most popular sellers from the Spring/Summer Catalogue. I stamped the ladies in the Archival Black ink pad from Stampin Up onto the White Shimmer card which I just love for colouring on, it is a little more forgiving that standard Whisper White.
 The colours used are Rich Razzleberry and Melon Mambo and I stamped an extra lady and cut here out and layered her up for a little dimension! Can you spot a new product on this card?
 If you would like to get your hands on the Watercolour Pencils then they are a steal at £14.50 for 13 pencils and I hope that after today's class my ladies will agree that they are really easy to use.

Balloon Adventures

Hello there! Today I am sharing the last make from last weeks Tuesday Club. I used the Balloon Adventures stamp set which I confess to only having used twice! I think I struggled with it as I was only seeing it paired with the papers in the Spring/Summer catalogue and they didn't really entice me so I didn't really use the set! Once I came to use it with my own colours then I really loved it!
 The great news about this set is that its reduced on the Retirement List from £24 down to £19.20, if you fancy having a look you can find it on my store HERE
 I cased this style of card from my very talented team member Amanda, you can find her card here, thank you Amanda for your constant inspiration.

And here is the stamp set, 17 stamps which coodirnate with the Balloon Bouquet punch which I know a lot of you already have!
