Clearly Besotted design the most fabulous wreaths and this summery Simply Scrumptious set is a perfect example. With such a gorgeous image I wanted to keep it simple so I started with a light water-colour wash on Tim Holtz card with Gansai Tambi paints (adore that pool colour). I waited until the background was totally dry before stamping the leaves of the wreath in Peeled Paint and gently moving the ink around with a damp brush. I also added some depth and details with Distress Markers. For the strawberries I coloured Distress Markers directly on the image before stamping in the gaps left for them on the wreath. Again I went back in with the markers to give more details.
The new Clearly Besotted release goes live at 10pm UK time (5pm EST) on April 5th when you will be able to find all the new designs over at Clearly Besotted and Simon Says Stamp.
