Welcome back to the sneak peeks of Clearly Besotted's January release! If you've only just joined in the fun, then be sure to check out Day 1 and Day 2 (especially if you're a fan of punny cards!) All of the new goodies will be available to purchase from tomorrow night at 10pm GMT.
You may, or may not, be glad to hear that I've stepped away from the punny cards for today with this card featuring stamps from the Minature Florals Collection II set. I wasn't kidding when I said that there was something for everyone with this release! Clearly Besotted design stunning floral-themed stamp sets like no-one else IMHO. This set works fabulous on its own or paired with the larger versions of the flowers you'll spot from previous Clearly Besotted sets. I'm thinking of beautiful cards co-ordinating with miniature versions as tags for a future project!
- I'm not brilliant when it comes to horticulture so I'm not entirely sure what colour these flowers should be. I'm a true believer in artistic license with such things so go for whatever colour you please!
- I heat-embossed the flowers onto vellum and coloured the majority on the reverse (no need to stay inside the lines!) using cheap anything-but-fancy pencil crayons. I then added a touch of shading and sparkle on the front using Sakura Gelly Roll Stardust pens.
- There's some serious fussy-cutting going on with these vellum flowers, but following a raised, heat-embossed line makes it much easier than you think.
