Clearly Besotted Sneak Peeks Day 4 !

August 4, 2015 at 9:14 am 18 comments

81ad6-teaser2btimeWelcome back to the last fun day of previews before you can be let loose in the Clearly Besotted Stamp store for the release which goes live tomorrow at 10pm (GMT).

Today, I’ve used two sets to make 2 very different cards. The first is using ‘Make A Splash’photo 1-73 copy 5 It’s a brilliantly fun set. I envisaged this little dolphin playing and leaping out of the water. On closer inspection of the set (which you’ll see in full tomorrow), there is a ripple you can stamp in the water- but in just cutting out the outer ring, it created the perfect ‘hoop’ for little dolphin to sail through.photo 2-71 copy 5 You can see the dimension of the elements in that photo- courtesy of some little acetate squares. It lifts them right out of the card and I’ve also used acetate strips to extend the card beyond the usual and add in the clouds. It’s a clever little trick that stops the card looking cluttered but is slightly tricky fitting the card into an envelope 😉photo 3-40 I dug out some old micro beads (remember those?!) and used them to accentuate the waves which were created with distress ink. Stamp some fun drops of water and you’re done!

Onto the next set- the stunning ‘Beautiful Friend’.

It’s got a couple of beautiful sprays in the set, and I just added touches of watercolour (well, water based markers to be precise)photo 4-27 copy 3

I added some white gel pen detailing and some stripes to bring the colour scheme together.photo 5-15 copy 3Hasn’t this release been amazing? It’s not finished yet though- do go and visit the other girl’s blogs and you’ll be wowed!

I will be back tomorrow on Release Day with another project for you, so do check back tomorrow.

Thank you for all your kind comments and hello to all of the lovely new visitors!

See you tomorrow then!

    Do you ever get tired of being amazing. It really must be a trial, having all these people admire your work and oohing and aahing over you fabulous creations. You poor thing. Wish I had your talent and imagination. I’m completely green with envy.

      Conil- you have made me chuckle and after the couple of days I’ve had it’s a welcome thing. Please could you email me at my address in the sidebar with your address ( if you don’t mind, that is) as I’d like to pop you a little something in the post for the smiles!! x
