Clearly Besotted sneaky peek number three and yes, you’ve guessed it, I’ve chosen a flower stamp again! Tulips are one of my favourite flowers though so I had to use this image from the gorgeous new Friends Forever set :D
Another easy decision was to white heat emboss the flower by stamping in Versamark on Neenah solar white and using Simon Says Stamp’s white embossing powder. I had seen a WIP (work in progress) of a gorgeous watercolour of these tulips by Caryn so I turned to my Copics to mix it up a bit. The sentiment is stamped in Versamark on paper vellum and gold heat embossed. I snuck some clear adhesive under the lettering to adhere it to the flower panel and also a Heidi Swapp sticker helped to keep it in place.
The panel is layered over Amy Tangerine paper (love that pop of yellow) and on a Neenah desert storm card base. A few enamel dots added more splashes of colour :D
I will be back tomorrow with the last of the peaks before the sets go live at 10pm UK time (5pm EST). In the meantime, for more inspiration pop by Stephanie for links to the Design Team and our awesome guests this month; Lucy Abrams, Jo Nevill and Jen Nelson :D

Such a gorgeous card and a fabulous coloring!! Love it!
Wow, this is gorgeous! I love the way you lightly stamped the image and colored it so the lines wouldn’t show!
Such a fresh color combo. I love that sentiment.
So, so beautiful. I want to reach out and touch the petals, they look so real. Thank you so much – now, would you be willing to do a tutorial showing us EXACTLY how you put your color down and did the blending? No matter how hard I try, it never comes out looking this good!
