Beautiful You – Sneak Peek – Sale-A-Bration Glimmer Paper

Hey stampers!  Stampin’ Up!’s Beautiful You stamp set continues to be my absolute “fave” for watercoloring! This sample uses the technique of an ink pad “palette”. You squeeze the lid on a closed stamp pad, which transfers ink onto the lid of the pad. You then open it up and color using your favorite watercoloring tool.

Do you see the “sneak peek” on this card? It’s the strip of glimmer paper down the center. A 6″ x 6″ pad of assorted Glimmer Paper is coming as a FREE NEW Sale-A-Bration choice later this month…woo hoo!
