Hello, lovely snowdrops!


Can you believe it? November already! We have less than 10 weeks to get our wedding sorted - I have a feeling that those weeks are going to zoom by!

But enough of weddings, let's give you a sneaky peek of Clearly Besotted's November release. :) It has been my absolute pleasure to ink up the new set, Winter Blooms. I'm not horticultural expert, but I do love snowdrops and I love how I can use this beautiful set to cater for a number of occasions throughout the winter months.

tips and tricks

  • I embossed the snowdrops onto vellum and added colour on the reverse side using standard pencil crayons. Always check how the colouring looks on the front as it can appear quite subtle and pale.
  • The thin strip of acetate (an old Hambly ScreenPrint) helps to ground the design and is adhered using the strip of silver cardstock at the top to avoid adhesive showing through the acetate.
  • To add a touch of sparkle to my snowdrops, I dug out my old Sakura Startdust pens. You can't see it on the pic, but the snowdrops really sparkle. :) 

Well that's just one sneaky peek of the new Clearly Besotted release, so pop across to Stephanie's to check out many more sneaky peeks from the rest of the fabulous DT including our guesties for the month, Pia Krogh Larsen and Cindy Lovell!

Thanks so much for visiting today and have a wonderful rest-of-the-weekend! :)
