leafy fun

This is my second post today; please scroll down to see my Lil' Inker Designs post :)

So I'm back today to share some more from Clearly Besotted Stamps latest release. My first card is a very 'me' example. I used three of the new sets on this simple card! The leaf sprig is from Leafy Accents, the cute polka dot heart is from Once Upon A Time and the sentiment is from Full of Surprise.




I coloured the leaves with Distress Markers in peeled paint and forest moss and then added a little more detail after stamping with the forest moss marker. Then I added the sweet polka dot heart stamped in Hero Arts royal red and popped up. Two Studio Calico wood veneer birds added the final touch.

For my second card I wanted to show how versatile these stamps are and go completely out of my comfort zone and get really inky! I love seeing Jill Foster's inky exploits and so tried to channel a bit of Jill magic and went to town! 




I cut a die cut shape and heat embossed the leaf sprig in white before using a variety of Distress Inks to give plenty of colour before stamping the music background from Background Builder. I spritzed with water and dotted with a perfect pearls solution before adding a sprinkling of pearls, sentiment on circle die cut and flower. Phew!

Well that's me for today. I'll be back tomorrow with more from Lil' Inker Designs and Clearly Besotted Stamps :)

Beautiful cards! Did you spritz the leaves with water before stamping on the first card? I can't seem to get my distress markers to create such beautiful blending like you did!

Hehe, Kelly & Wida, yep well out of my comfort zone for the second card! Rachel I coloured the leaves direct to the stamp with the two markers and then 'huffed' on the stamp before stamping to the paper. After I'd stamped the leaves I took the darkest marker and added a few flicks with the brush end from the stem out. I love my markers and the intensity of colour is great.
