More magazine free stamps

I don't know what it is lately but the UK magazines seem to be on a roll with the fab free stamp sets, I suppose technically they aren't free but still they are great value, this month with "simply cards and papercraft" was a set of clearly besotted stamps, now I love me some clearly besotted and so I had to get this one. I already had the original set which included the Rose but the fushia and butterflies were new to me, as soon as I got this I made this card and then before the glue was even dry I made another one, I will save that for another day though.

So onto the card, I went for a cas look, clearly besotted stamps really suit this style and it's one I find myself wanting to create more and more often. I covered the leaf branch with pear tart memento then just at the edges I added bamboo leaves, I stamped this onto a panel of Michaels 110lb card cut with blueprints 20 from mft. I haven't coloured with my copics for what seemed like ages and when I stamped the fushia flowers with memento they seemed a little dark do I stamped them off once and then used the second generation to colour.

Images: clearly besotted free set
Inks: "pear tart" and "bamboo leaves" both memento dew drops
Card: Michaels 110lb White and "raspberry ripple" stampin Up
Dies: blueprints 20 from MFT
Sentiment: free set stamped in "steel grey" MFT dye ink

Fushias - R63, R66, RV19, RV17, RV34
