Clearly Besotted May sneak peeks...


Happy Tuesday! It's back to work for me today after the extended bank holiday. It was a bit of soggy one here, but that gave me the perfect excuse create with Clearly Besotted's May release to give you some sneak peeks before the full release is available to purchase from 5th May at 10pm (UK time). :)

Today's card gives you a sneak peek of the beautiful, 'To You With Love' stamp set. I gravitated towards this set as soon as I laid my eyes up on it! I always say that Clearly Besotted do the most fabulous floral stamp sets and this is set is of no exception!

I'd normally go ahead and heat-emboss this image and colour it in, but I fancied doing something a little different so opted for the no-line colouring technique. I'm no artist (just check out Keren's or Debby's take on this flower to see how a real artist does this set justice) but I had fun stamping the image in Desert Sand Memento ink and colouring it with all of my three pink and three green Copics (I really want more!) I added a few highlights with a white gel pen and paired the image with some yummy papers from the My Mind's Eye On Trend 2 paper pad.


The heat-embossed sentiment comes with the stamp set too and I couldn't resist adding some of Lucy's pretty sequins and a BoBunny clip to the design. I'm going to admit that it pained me to affix the layers onto the card front at angles, but I'm hoping it adds a bit of fun to the finished design. :)

This month we have the fabulous Taheerah Atchia, Anita Bowden, Vanessa Amann and Yoonsun Hur joining us as guesties! I'm also absolutely thrilled that we have my talented friend, Keren Baker, joining our Design Team! Pop across to their blogs to get your mojo fix – and while you're at it, hop across to Stephanie's for more sneak peeks and links to the rest of the Design Team sharing more jaw-dropping creations!

Great colouring, Aimes, I love the white accents. And I know what you mean about jaunty angles, but this works great with the pretty paper behind. Great to be back designing with you again this month :) xx
