CB Teasers | Beautiful Friend & Aloha

Hello there, I am back with another two teasers for the Clearly Besotted August release. Today I am using two new sets - Beautiful Friend and Aloha. Both stunning floral sets. My first card uses the Beautiful Friend set. This has two stunning floral images, along with some beautiful coordinating sentiments.


I started off by taking the Fuchsia image and stamping this on to a piece of TH Watercolour CS with Antique Linen Distress Ink. The image was then coloured using Derwent Inktense Pencils with water and a paintbrush. I wasn't necessarily going for a no-line look but I did not want a harsh black line either, this is why I used the Antique Linen ink. For the blue shadow around the image, I used a Zig Clean Color Real Brush pen, as I did not have a light blue in the Inktense pencils.

 
Once dried, I stamped the sentiment, from the Many Mini Messages set, beside it. The panel was adhered to a SSS Doll Pink card base (A2 in size) along with a thin strip of black cardstock, to tie in the black sentiment. I went with a bit more of an 'artsy' look with this. I am used to doing smooth colouring, so it was a little out of my comfort zone!

My next card uses the new Aloha stamp set, along with the coordinating dies.


I started off by stamping the Hibiscus and leaves with Versmark Ink on to some white cardstock. I then applied white embossing powder and heat set. These were coloured using TH Distress Markers. I added very little water, since I was not using Watercolour paper. Once dried, I added a liberal layer of clear Wink of Stella to both the flower and leaves.
 

The Hibiscus and leaves were adhered to a panel of white cardstock, which was in turn, adhered to a white A2 card base with foam sheet. I took a piece of PTI Melon Berry cardstock and stamped the sentiment, from the Beautiful Friend set, with more Versamark and also heat set this in white. The sentiment was adhered over the flower using thin foam tape. I finished off with a few Create A Smile enamel dots, as well as adding some Glossy Accents to the stamens on the Hibiscus.
