Clearly Besotted Stamps - February Release - Teaser Day 4

Well, today is the day that you will finally be able to get your hands on this brilliant new release from Clearly Besotted Stamps ! 10pm GMT is the time you need to get to your PC !!

Today I have two cards to show you, both from the same stamp set which is called "Wild Thing".

I made this card first

I coloured this cheeky monkey with Copics and then......

after seeing Kristina Werner's amazing video on  no-lines watercoloring, I just had to give it a go !  Kristina inspired a lot of crafters to grab their watercolours/distress markers and have a go at this technique and its been wonderful seeing how everyone has got on and how fab their work is.  I'm no artist so I found it quite difficult but after several attempts I was really pleased at how this little fellow turned out.

I know a workman should never blame his/her tools but I did find that buying some decent brushes helped enormously !  Trying this technique with the kids paintbrushes just didn't help with my struggles !  So, my tip is to try this technique with good tools in hand !!  I bought a set of Winsor and Newton Foundation water colour brushes from WHSmith.  I think they were about £8 for a set of 6 and I found them fantastic to work with.

This stamp set is fantastic for trying out different colouring techniques.  It also has a lion and tiger which I shall have to practice my no-lines colouring on !

As always, you can see links to everything I used below.

I shall be back tomorrow with another card to show you from this amazing release !
