You Are Beautiful

You Are Beautiful



I can't believe how quick Thursday comes around, even in lockdown! I seem to be filling my time with LOTS of outstanding DIY jobs that have been waiting to be finished! The time spent painting has cleared my mind and think of creative things and stamp sets to dust off and use, like the WPlus9 Beautiful Butterflies.



I admit I have been scrolling through social media more than usual and I have come across so many people, including friends saying how in lockdown they are unhappy with their skin, nails, hair etc. So I thought of this stamp set to make a card as a reminder for one of my friends in that she is beautiful and all the weekly, monthly beauty treatments that she is missing out on are not the end of the world and that she is still beautiful.


My thinking was to to showcase the beauty of the detailed butterflies that are in this stamp set by keeping them black & white and make them stand out on a ink blended background.



I love how this card turned out and it didn't take long to make either. I used Distress Oxide Inks to create the background. If you are like me and have never been one for ink blending, this medium makes it a breeze! Then I used VersaFine Onyx Black ink for the butterfly and sentiment. This stamp set does come with matching dies, but I find fussy cutting theraputic and enjoy it, so didn't use the dies.


So there is my reminder to you all that you ARE beautiful, even without the enhancements us women like to treat oursleves to! Have a wonderful day & don't forget to make time to create :)
