Clearly Besotted Teasers | Absolutely Fabulous Day

Hello there and welcome to day three of the Clearly Besotted June 2019 Teasers. Not long to go now, the new products release on the 1st June. Today I am using two new sets - Pick A Peony and Simply Said, as well as the new Honeycomb Crunch Stencil.

I started of by stamping one of the peony clusters from the Pick A Peony Stamp Set on to a panel of Bristol Smooth cardstock with Versamark Ink. I applied Detail White Embossing Powder and heat set. I then coloured the image with a combination of Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers and Arteza Real Brush Markers (I have the number of the Zigs listed below but unfortunately, I have an older set of the Arteza pens and there are no colours/numbers on them).
I first added the colour to the image directly from the pen and then blended this out with water and a paintbrush. I add lighter layers first and then add darker colours for some shading. I used two shades of purple on the petals and two greens on the leaves. Once it was dry, I made a mask for the image from masking paper and added this on top. I first added a light shades of Spun Sugar and Picked Raspberry Distress Inks around the image. I then placed the Honeycomb Crunch Stencil on top and added more of the ink.
I thought the pink was too bright so I added in some Shaded Lilac Distress Ink over the top to dull it down it a bit. I first added a layer without the stencil and then placed the stencil over the top again before removing the mask. I wanted the stencilling to be fairly subtle but still noticeable. I took the sentiment from the Simply Said Stamp Set and stamped this on to the panel with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. The panel was added to a white card base with foam tape. To finish off, I added a few Lucy's Pink Moonstone Sequins.

Even though the honeycomb pattern wouldn't usually go with flowers, I thought it worked quite well on this card. And that new sentiment set? It is already one of my favourites! I do need to apologise for the photos, though. My camera was just not playing nice with the colours on this one, sadly. For more inspiration using the new release, please do pop over to the Clearly Besotted Blog, as well as Keren and Lisa. Thanks so much for visiting me today, see you tomorrow for my final teaser card. Have a great day!
