Teaser Time


Well, we made it…it’s Release Day! Tonight you can purchase the entire release at 10pm (GMT) from the Clearly Besotted Store, Simon Says Stamp and Ellen Hutson .

But whilst you wait for the hours to pass- here’s a couple of last projects. The first using the ‘Best Easter’ set. IMG_4218Because these guys are balloons, this set is useful waaay past Easter. In fact, once you see the sentiment, the ‘Have the Best’ is separate so you could easily put in ‘Birthday’ etc so it becomes a superbly versatile set.IMG_4222

The little balloons were stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento ink and then coloured in with Prismacolor pencils. I’m still getting used to these pencils, but they are easy to use, albeit they need a little more working time to get shading etc. I think for the soft textural look they give, it’s worth the extra time.IMG_4221

The balloons are actually attached to acetate and the strings glued both behind the balloons and on top of the front of the card. You’ve probably gathered that I like acetate a LOT!

Anyway! The second sample is a mix-up of ‘From All of Us’ and a brilliantly useful sentiment set called ‘So To Speak II’. I’ve used the stamps to create a pseudo brick wall and used it as a background to add the flowers to.FullSizeRender (3)

It makes more of a feature of the sentiment in a different way. Yes, forgive the slightly ‘leaked’ colouring. It was late…what can I say?! No excuses huh!!


The flowers are stunning stamps aren’t they!

Thankyou so much for joining me again. Please pop over to the Clearly Besotted Stamp Blog and see lots more creative inspiration using these sets!

I have loved seeing new faces over here, and thanks for your continued support!!

    Aren’t those balloon critters and images adorable…you have created a breath-taking Easter card with them. Those coloring (mispelled?) skills of yours are fabulous. Then we go in the opposite direction and build a brick wall with speech bubbles…your imagination is mind-boggling. Brilliant.
