Beautiful You – Simply Irresistible

I’m so excited!  I’ve just registered for OnStage in Richmond in April.  This is one of my favorite Stampin’ Up! events!  Why?  Because I get to play with new products and I get to hang out with lots of other crafty friends and friends to be!!

Once that was done, I put on my creative cap.  Ever since I looked at the one image in Beautiful You I’ve been hearing Simply Irresistible by Robert Palmer.  I think it was a Pepsi commercial that had this line of women in black with black hats.

 I used a Basic Black cardstock base and added a layer from the Neutral Designer Series Paper Stack.

Moving on to the Whisper White layer, I stamped the outline of the gal from Beautiful You starting in the center and working my way out to the edges.  The outline was inked with Archival Basic Black.

Before stamping the outline, I used a q-tip to dab off some of the ink.  This way, I could come back in and give her red lips using my Real Red Stampin’ Write Marker.

The dress fill stamp was inked with Memento Black.  Memento Black a slightly lighter black so the outline still shows well.

To color in the hat, I used a Blender Pen and my Basic Black Stampin’ Write Marker.

The sentiment was stamped using the Labeler Alphabet.  The letters were inked with Memento Black on Whisper White and then cut by hand.

After adhering the Whisper White layer at a slight angle, I added the sentiment with pieces of Adhesive Foam Strip.

Final details were the additional of the Basic Rhinestones and a black sequin from the Metallics Sequin Assortment.
