You’re The Best

I’m back today with one last look at one of the new sets being released this month at Clearly Besotted.  Today I’m sharing a card made with a very stylish little set called “Accent It“.  I thought this set would be great for background building designs so with the help of my MISTI (no way I could’ve lined the stamps up without it) I created this design.  Although the colours are a bit bright for her, I thought the pattern was a bit reminiscent of Orla Kiely – maybe it’s just me!


I used Avery Elle pigment inks in Magenta and Daisy, stamping alternate colours to create the pattern.  I used a piece of plastic as an aid to placing the stamp so it was lined up perfectly each time – I would never have attempted this and got it to work so perfectly without the MISTI – I love this thing!

I finished off the card with some Doodlebug Sprinkles and stamped the sentiment from another new set this month called Sugar and Spice in Onyx  black Versafine ink.

Well that’s it from me.  Don’t forget the new release goes live tonight at 10pm – woohoo!  Check out the rest of the design team for more fabulous examples.
