"The Beauty"...an SCACD Sneak Peek!

The sneak peeks continue today for the upcoming release this Friday at SCACD! Susana is releasing two gorgeous new exclusive collections by Carmen Medlin..."Reflections Fantasy" and "Reflections Yesteryear". (There are also two "Just Because" stamps!!) We kicked off the previews yesterday, and they will continue each day leading up to our release day blog hop on Friday.

My sneak peak today features "The Beauty", one of the stamps in the "Reflections Yesteryear" collection. These newest stamps by Carmen are just exquisite. They are also very versatile...as you can see, I used "The Beauty" for a Christmas card by pairing her up with some pretty holiday papers. I also added some Make It Crafty Chipboard that was given a coat of ivory craft paint followed by a coat of Stickles. I coloured some white pearls with my R59 Copic marker for a custom colour match.


The Beauty was stamped on Neenah cardstock with Memento Ink and coloured with Copics.


Skin: E000, E00, E11, R20  Hair: E50, E31, E33, E37, E59  Dress: R22, R27, R46, R59, G20, G82, G85, G99, C5, C7  Chair: B91, B93, B95, B97, C5 (my apologies as I forgot to record the colours used on the wooden parts of the chair)

Stunning Melanie! The richness of your coloring is wonderful and so perfect for this image. The dress blows me away!

Hi Melanie...I think I have figured out why I love your work so much. Your work stands out from everyone elses because of your choice of colours for one thing. They remind me of gemstones. You also match your paper beautifully on top of it all, which of course creates the whole package. Your blending is fantastic to say the least, and I aspire to be as good as you on day. Thank you for all the tips you have shared with me too.
