Beautiful You Week - Day 5: Through the Window

Welcome back to the last day  of the Beautiful You Week.  Today's card has a lot of steps, but the end result is so worth it all!  I was going for a card of support.  The scene is from the inside of a house where the supporter is, and the view outside the window is the woman in the rain who is having difficulty.  The sentiment is just perfect for this card, don't you agree?

Here is a step-by-step video to show you how the card was put together.  Please let me know if you  hae any questions at all, or if I can help you with any of your papercrafting needs.

Beautiful You Week - Day 3: Watercolor

Today's project is a watercolor card that was so fun to make. I used reinkers and aqua painters to apply the color, and I liked just "swirling" the color around.  I thought the free hand, unstructured painting went well with the sentiment that I used.

Here's the video that shows how the card came together:

Beautiful You Week - Day 2: Rainy Day

Welcome to Day Two of Beautiful You Week.  For today's project, I have two cards to show you.  The first one is one I CASE'd from Pinterest.  A fellow SU demonstrator, France Martin, did a card similar to it.  Then I decided it was a bit too gloomy, so I changed it  up and added some bright Daffodil Delight.  I thought that the sentiment I chose was much better with the brighter colors.  What do you think?  Which do you like better?

Here they both are:

Here's a closer look at the original:

And here is a closer look at the modified, brighter one:

I'd love to know which you like better.  I've included a video to show how this card was made:
