Clean and Simple | ft. Clearly Besotted - Miniature Florals Collection II


Hi everyone, thank you for stopping by. I hope you are having a great day.

Today was one of those days where not only the idea but the execution of this card came in a snap. I just got a nice sized haul of Clearly Besotted floral stamps and was itching to use them.

When it comes to floral images, this is the company to go with -- in my opinion. They have nice thin lines so whether you are stamping in black or embossing the lines of the image don't overpower the project.

I also find the flowers to be quite realistic, and with only a little Googling it is easy to find samples of the flowers in order to colour it as it would be in life.


To begin, I stamped the image using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink on Copic friendly paper. I also created a mask with a sticky note and cut it out.

I masked off the image and sponged Milled Lavender Distress Ink using a damask stencil, darker at the top and fading as it moves down the panel.

Once that was dry, I removed the mask and coloured the image using copic markers. I used my glitter pen to colour in the centres of the flowers, but the glitter doesn't really show up on camera. (Sad face).

I then mounted the panel on a slightly larger piece of lilac cardstock and then on to a standard A2 sized card base.

I opted to not include a greeting this time, as it looked out of place and threw off the balance of the card.

I hope you like today's card and are inspired to create something of your own.
