Clearly besotted

GD CAS Watercolour: Poppy

Hi friends
I’m absolutely thrilled to have been asked to be a guest designer at CAS watercolour this month. For my first card using the theme poppy I created this card using clearly besotted stamps.

I used my zig clean colour real brush markers to add the colour to my flowers and background. I added a simple white heat embossed sentiment, some white highlights to the flowers and a couple of jewels.

I hope you like my card and will join us this month. Can’t wait to see what you create.

    I love the way you lovely bold red has leached into the rest of the card. It is really effective. I have not been able to master that effect. It always looks naff when I try it! Great card, congrats on your guest designer spot xx
