With Sympathy... Clearly Besotted October Release

Morning.... I am absolutely delighted this month to be joining Stephanie and the fabulous DT over at Clearly Besotted stamps for the October release.... I'm starting my teasers with this gorgeous set... Brushed Poppies...


I stamped the image (made up of layers) onto water colour card stock with distress inks (Barn Door, Festive Berries and Peeled Paint).  I love the effect of the blend into the card stock.  To finish it off I added in the words and stamens in Versafine black to give a lovely black black.

I've settled into the job now and hope you will see more from me from now on.  Last few weeks has been manic as I've needed visit Vienna a few times (head office) and this week a sales conference in Barcelona.  I must say I love this place and last night we managed to go to the Sagrada Familia and La Pederera for some sightseeing ... sorry I mean team building!

I'll be back tomorrow with more to teasers but make sure you check out the rest of the DT. See you later...

  11. It's gorgeous Jen. I hope you don't mind but I mentioned you in a post today. I was trying a CAS style, which you are the queen of! and it still feels 'unfinished' when I do it. You make it look so effortless. *sigh* !!! Thanks for the inspiration honey. :0)
