Hi! It’s Day 3 of Clearly Besotted Teasers. Thanks for stopping by!
I was a little afraid whilst creating and posting today, and I kid you not! I really really really don’t like spiders. I can get a little near to them and it all starts getting a lot more uncomfortable! So even as I was colouring this slightly cute version, I still was aware it was a spider I was colouring and had to breathe a little more deeply! (ha ha!)
I’ve mixed up a couple of sets here. The spider is from Best Halloween set but I wanted to make him a little cuter as I don’t like Halloween. I immediately thought of the nursery rhyme ‘Incey Wincey Spider’. I thought about being brave with spiders and Incey being brave climbing up and down the waterspout (or drainpipe!) so I used the sentiment and butterflies from ‘Cute Cubs’. I just sketched out a drainpipe and added some white gel pen detailing.
I trimmed out a little grass and added around the bottom and then popped the spidey onto some twine which makes me happier than creating a web! I rather like him and makes me think that if all spiders were as happy and cute as he, I’d never have a fear of spiders!
My second project is using the ‘Feeling Frightful’ set, which is a perfect set of images for little boys or big guys. Quite frankly, I can think of lots of occasions where I’ve felt frightful enough to receive one of these cards!
First of all I stamped out the jars and then added all the individual elements with the inner images ( which you stamp too.)
Then because I wanted to make an old shop front type of card, I reached for my window die (which some of you may have) and cut them out of some patterned paper. Granted, the paper isn’t a perfect ‘building’ pattern but gave enough contrast to the wood panelled patterned paper for the inside.
It came together quite quickly once that was sorted. I added the cobwebs by stamping onto acetate with Cotton White Stazon. I also stamped some cobwebs onto the jars and using the spider stamps, I cut one out and lengthened the black ‘web’ bit with a black pen!
Hope you weren’t too scared by these cards- I did end up having fun creating them, and I reckon you’ll love the sets too!
Back tomorrow, with a super flexible set!
