Tiger lilies

On your Wedding Day

Happy Friday! I'm popping in today to give you a sneak peek of what's in store for you with the new June release from Clearly Besotted. All of the new products are available for purchase from on Sunday 5th June from 10pm (UK time).

When I received my parcel of Clearly Besotted goodness (trust me, it's like Christmas every month!) I was immediately taken by the 'To Have & To Hold' stamp set. I love lilies and there are so many varieties out there that you could pretty much colour these any way you like and you'd probably find that you've captured a variety of lily perfectly!

For some reason, I'm gravitating towards orange at the moment. I also fancied a good colouring session, so I've transformed the lilies from the set into tiger lilies. I used a no-line colouring technique by stamping them with Desert Sand Memento ink. The sentiments of the stamp set cater for weddings, but you really could use these beautiful lilies for any occasion.

I decided to pair the bright tiger lilies with navy and touches of gold. I love this classic, sophisticated colour combo. I also coloured over the lilies with a clear Wink of Stella glitter brush pen. You can't see the sparkle on my pictures, but trust me, it's there!

That's all from me today, but be sure to visit Stephanie to check out more sneak peeks and links to the rest of the Design Team sharing even more fabulous projects!
