Clearly Besotted Teasers | Just A Drop

Hello there and welcome to day two of the December Clearly Besotted Teasers. Today I am using the new Just A Drop set. It is so pretty and features snowdrops and fuchsias. I decided to go with the snowdrops for my card and went with a bit more of a mixed media feel to it.

I started off by stamping the snowdrops image, from the Just A Drop set, on to a piece of watercolour paper with Fog ink. I then watercoloured the background with Distress Inks. I smooshed the ink on to a slick surface and then picked it up with a paintbrush and water. I used Broken China, Salty Ocean, Chipped Sapphire and Wilted Violet. Once these were dry, I splattered on some water, let it sit for about 30 seconds and then picked it up with a dry cloth. This created some interest and I thought the bright background would go well with the more muted snowdrops.

Once the background was dry, I then coloured the snowdrops using Polcychromos colour pencils (the colours I used are listed below the supplies section). The image panel was cut down and added to an A2 white card base with foam tape. I took the 'happy birthday' sentiment from the Happy Birthday All set and stamped this on to black cardstock with Versamark Ink. I applied white embossing powder and heat set. This was then cut down in to a strip and added to the card with more foam tape.

Like I say, this does have a bit of a mixed media feel to it. I love that I can combine media and still keep the CAS look. Please do head over to see what my teamies Stephanie, Keren and Lisa have been up to. See you tomorrow for day three. Have a great day!
