Today is my final project for the countdown for the Clearly Besotted May release. All stamps and coordinating dies will be available for purchase from Clearly Besotted and Simon Says Stamp at 8pm BST on 1st May.
Today, I have another floral card for you – I did warn you there were a few to tempt you this month! This one comes from one of the larger sets called Say It With Flowers and you have two beautiful images to choose from.
This was a really quick card to pull together, especially if you just like playing around with watercolour. The image was stamped using Versafine Onyx Black ink (waterproof) onto some Tim Holtz Distress Watercolour cardstock. I like this cardstock as it is almost white in colour and is perfect for cardmaking.
I watercoloured the image using some Daniel Smith Extra Fine Watercolour paints and left it to dry. It is very loose watercolouring – I have not focused on light source, just added a little bit of extra shading here and there.
Once the panel was dry I added some shimmer onto the bow and then I stamped and white heat embossed the greeting onto some black cardstock. This was trimmed to size.
The panel was added to a Simon Says Stamp Fog card base using craft foam for some dimension. The sentiment was also popped up with foam tape. And as always, a few sparkly clear sequins to finish the card off.
I hope you have enjoyed the teasers. There are several additional sets which I have not had the opportunity to use yet, so make sure you head over to Stephanie, Michelle and Keren to see what they have to show you.
I will have a video for you next week though, showcasing a few of the recently released sets plus one from the May release – Perfect Pigs.
Thank you for stopping by and I will be back soon. I hope you have all had a lovely weekend.
