Welcome back to Day 2 of the Clearly Besotted sneak peeks of the February release! If you missed out on Day 1 then click here. All of the new goodies are available to purchase from 5th February at 10pm GMT. :)
I know that I shared a creation featuring the 'You Are Wonderful' stamp set yesterday so I hope you won't mind that today's card features the same set. What can I say? I'm giving you a good peek at it LOL! I love it and I'm going to suggest that today's card is very different in both style and occasion from yesterday's. ;)
We have an early Easter in 2016 so the new Clearly Besotted release is perfectly timed for me to create a couple of cards ready for the occasion. To give the flowers a bit of a different look, therefore making it kinda different from yesterday's card (have I convinced you yet that it's different?!) I decided to capture a section of the image on the die-cut circle; it goes to show that sections of a stamp can look just as lovely as a full image. The sentiment tucks nicely next to the daffodils too which keeps everything contained snugly in the focal point.
- You can achieve a different look with these beautiful blooms by simply changing the colour of the ink used. For yesterday's card I opted to use grey ink which gave a softer, more subtle effect. The black ink used on today's card creates a bolder look.
- To make my daffodils really 'pop' I traced around the outline of them using a very light blue alcohol marker. This is a trick that works for any image and will instantly add some depth.
- I love to add little twine bows to mini pegs as a finishing embellishment. I find that a good dot of Glossy Accents is great at keeping the twine in place on the wooden peg. :)
