Clearly Besotted July Release Day 4 Teasers

June 30, 2018 at 8:00 am 5 comments

Thankyou for popping by to my blog again. If you’re only visiting for the first time today, I’m showcasing some sneak peeks of the Clearly Besotted July Release. Today’s stamp set is Wild Times- and these monkeys are definitely having just that!


If you remember me mentioning a few days that I’d be using the Cute Koala tiny leaves again; here it is! I drew some feint pencil lines mimicking low hanging forest vegetation and then stamped the leaves randomly along those lines. Once that was done, I simply drew in any visible pencil lines with a Rystar Technic fineliner (0.1).


I stamped the monkeys in slightly different colours so it didn’t look all the same and then mounted them on foam pads and to make them look like their tails were actually hanging from the branches, I added another leaf over the top.

Adding some Woodland Green Nuvo drops added a little texture and I left a large portion blank intentionally. You could add your sentiment anywhere, but I’m leaving it blank so I’m all ready whenever I need a card for any occasion!

This set has matching dies, which are always useful! I fussy cut mine, but then you knew I love doing that already!

The inspiration isn’t over yet; do visit the Clearly Besotted Blog plus the lovely Lisa and Michelle too!

See you tomorrow for Release Day and a last peek!

    Of course, you did your own fussy cutting…but aren’t you glad you did. The monkeys are adorable but having the dimension of all those leaves really adds so much to your card.

    A lot of work but a great fun design with lots of movement! I like your swinging leaves and tip on colouring the monkeys differently! superb!
