Yesterday I held my weekly facebook live crafting session and we used the retiring Beautiful You Stamp Set.  This set has been around for a few years now so i'm not surprised to say farewell to it but at the moment it is still available to purchase while stocks last.  If you have it on your wish list then be sure to place your order soon as we are now starting to see things sell out.  Click HERE to watch the replay, or alternatively you can visit my You Tube channel to see more tutorials.  
I have used a great watercolouring technique to create the backgrounds for both of my cards.  This isn't a technique that I use very often but I really should as I always have so much fun!

For the first card, I have created a rainbow effect for my background. I have done this using colours from our Brights collection (and one from the Regals collection)
I have created this watercolour background using the Fluid 100 Watercolour Paper and an Aqua Painter, drying with a Heat Tool although you can leave it to dry on it's own if you want to. 

For the second card, I have stuck to using one colour: Gorgeous Grape and used an Aqua Painter in the same way to create the smaller section of watercolour.  I have added a layer, dried with the Heat Tool and then added another layer in the same way until I was happy with the final look.

Thanks so much for reading today's blog post, I hope you come back soon.

Have a great day!
