Clearly Besotted Teaser Day 3!
Yes, You haven’t missed Day 2- it was really Day 2 yesterday as Clearly Besotted Stamps start with Day 1 where they show tiny thumbnails of a part of each set and that was on Saturday..so onto another day!
What does it remind you of? Well when I saw just one of the bugs in this set, I had a vision of fireflies in a jar
Aren’t those bugs gorgeous! Strictly speaking they’re not fireflies- but I’ve tried to make them look that way
I just did some simple colouring and then added some glittery bottoms- well they are fireflies after all 😉
Next I die cut a jar shape out of acetate and sewed it onto the base card. By using a coloured thread you help bring contrast to the card and tie in the colour of the hearts on the bug (well I had to add a heart in to make sure the sentiment made sense!).
To add a difference to the card, I extended the jar top above the card, added a textured lid from some wallpaper samples I had lying around and then added 2 jump rings into the acetate and added some copper wire for a handle.
The card is using only 2 elements from the set…wait until you see the rest. Jenny has done a wonderful job designing this months sets.
Hope you enjoy having a look around the Design Team’s blogs- I’m really looking forward to seeing what they’ve done with the sets! Start with the Clearly Besotted Stamps Blog first for the links. You’ve not long to wait to purchase these sets- they’re available from Wednesday 5th August.
Happy Monday- and keep shining (but not in the way of the fireflies!!)
