I had this thought in my head about what I wanted to do. It turned out a little different than I was imagining, but I really like it! Take a look:
All supplies from Stampin' Up! unless otherwise stated:
Stamp sets: Beautiful You, Bunch of Blossoms
Inks: Night of Navy, Marina Mist, Pool Party, Archival Basic Black, Powder Pink, Crushed Curry
Cardstock: Thick Whisper White, Night of Navy
Accessories: Color Theory Designer Series Paper Stack, Big Shot, Polka Dot Basics Embossing Folder, Sponge Daubers, Delicate White Doilies, Cookie Cutter Builder Punch, Scalloped Tag Topper Punch, Linen Thread, Rhinestone Basic Jewels, Dimensionals, Blue Sharpie (not from SU!)
If you are wondering how I colored her dress, I used the Sponge Daubers. I tapped the dauber in the Pool Party ink pad and then colored 1/3 of the stamp. Then I did the same with the Marina Mist ink pad, and then the Night of Navy ink pad last, using a different sponge dauber in each color. I lightly over-lapped each color to help them blend a bit. Then I breathed onto the stamp to moisten the ink back up and and carefully stamped over the top of the outline of the lady. It turned out really cute, I think! I just used an Aqua Brush to add color to the hat (Pool Party), and her skin (Powder Pink).
Now you might be thinking, "Hmm, Stampin' Up! doesn't make blue rhinestones!" I used a blue Sharpie pen to color a couple of Rhinestone Basic Jewels to get a little bit of blue sparkle on my card! And the little blue hearts? They came from the Cookie Cutter Builder Punch. It has the cutest little heart on it!
