Be-You-ti-ful card by designer Patty Folchert

Here is another card that uses the new Coloring book style design trend. This one was made for a special graduate, an encouragement to be her beautiful self. This is a brand new “Color Me” stamp set from Hampton Art, complemented by the new Healthy Hello papers from Jillibean Soup.

Once again I stamped the image in dark gray ink onto watercolor paper and then watercolor painted the image. It is a lot of fun and it doesn’t take very long to completely color the image. Next I chose one of the brand new watercolor tags and stamped the be-you- tiful sentiment onto it in dark gray ink. The tag needed something more so I used the green salt paper to coordinate it with the mat for the painted image as shown to pull the card together.

Both the image and the tag were added onto the card with 3D pop up dots. Last I added an iridescent yarn bow onto the tag and some of the new adhesive sequins as flower centers for a bit of bling.

Then it was complete, I think it makes a nice encouragement card. The time spent painting or coloring these type of images can be quite relaxing.

Be-You- tiful,
Patty Folchert
