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.
