Video: Beautiful You Watercolor Dress

Stampin’ Up asked me to do some projects for the Atlanta On Stage event  using a new stamp set called Beautiful You, that will come out in January in the new Occasions catalog.  It’s a fun set to work with whether you paper piece, watercolor or just stamp it.

You can click on one pic and scroll thru to see them full size:

I had to go on at the close to the end so my tummy was flippy all day! This project was my favorite but caused the most trouble that day.  I needed my black Sharpie to alter the dress and had it with the project on the table for the stage. When I got up there in front of everyone it was gone!  Thanks to an audience stamper, she got one up to me and later one of the tech guys said he grabbed it b/c it didn’t look ‘stampy’!  Too funny!

Here’s a video of how I created the altered dress:

I’ll revisit these projects in January when the set is available to everyone.  (December it is available to demonstrators for the Occasions preorder)

Thanks for a great time, Atlanta!

    I saw your card on another pin and my mind was whirling away wondering how to recreate this (I won this set at OnStage in Kansas City) when I came across your Pin. Thank you much for your video! Your card is simply elegant!

  11. Linda Heller says:

    Thanks so much! It’s really easy if you just go for it and not overthink it!

  12. Tanja says:

    HI Linda, can you tell me more on the bleached version and how did you do it?

  13. Linda Heller says:

    sure! Emboss your image in black first using versamark and black powder or Archival Black ink that is juicy and clear powder. Then use straight bleach with a little paint brush to apply bleach. Wait for the magic

  14. Mari says:
