Back to School Featuring Clearly Besotted!

Back To School Featuring Clearly Besotted

Hello everyone, it’s Nina-Marie here with you today! With August already in full swing, this week’s tutorial seemed like the perfect time to break out the adorable, new Clearly Besotted stamp set, That’s Genius! Have you seen the cute critters in this set? I love their oversized glasses! While this set could be used in so many ways, I’ll be pairing it with the Clearly Besotted Bookworm stamps and creating a “back to school” card!

In the video below, I will show you how I watercolored these images and added extra details with simple brush strokes and techniques. Along with the images from the That’s Genius and Bookworm stamp sets, I also paired these critters up with some of our newest Simon exclusive sets! The fun, die cut background is from our popular, new Diamond Pattern background die; this die is perfect for adding great texture! Additionally, I used a couple of sentiments from our also-new, School Bus Messages set.
