Hello, friends! Thank you for stopping by today for my second post as guest designer for Clearly Besotted. Be sure to follow them on Instagram, Facebook, and their Blog. This month, their teasers started on Sunday, February 25 so my posts will be a day behind, but I know you’ll still have plenty to be inspired by! You can find my first post here.
All products will be available for purchase on Thursday, March 1 so hopefully you’ll be a little patient – this month’s release is to die for! Such adorable-ness! They will be available for purchase at the Clearly Besotted Shop as well as Simon Says Stamp.
I am sharing two projects today. Lately, I’ve been enjoying practicing some loose watercoloring without trying to perfect details or shadows. My one main goal for 2018 is to enjoy creating and especially from the heart. Clearly Besotted releases some of the most beautiful floral stamps, which are perfect for watercoloring, Copic coloring, pencil coloring, and even no-line coloring. Their samples online are really inspiring.
For my first card, I used Spring Tulips. I stamped them in a row in waterproof black ink and colored them with my Mijello Mission Gold Watercolors. I used a separate watercolor sheet to color some blue and green to resemble a sky and field. Once it dried, I stamped the sentiment from Sweetest Sentiments. I fussy cut around the tulips and mounted it over the colored background with foam tape. Then I taped the whole thing over my white cardbase and added clear sequins (which I haven’t used in a while!)
For my second card, I stamped Spring Daffodils but kept it as a one-layer card. I used the same watercolors palette. I finished this one off with some clear sequins as well. That’s all! I had fun coloring and I will keep watercoloring… so I can achieve my simple goal of creating for fun. I hope you were inspired to do the same!
