Clearly Besotted April Teasers Day 3

G’day mate!!

I’m not simply stereotyping the Aussies; this new set with an Australian twist is entitled ‘Plushies Down Under’ and has that phrase as a sentiment.

I love the cityscape that I’ve tried to keep in the background so that Kangaroo Dundee was definitely the star!

I adore his little hat- and it seemed to have something missing. I know it’s a dreadful thing to suggest, but I really did want to fit in corks somewhere…apparently they were to ward off flies. The little kangaroo is a little too small for real corks so I wanted to give the hint of cork…

So I added some Nuvo Vintage drops and added some little black lines for the ‘string’. I absolutely adore all of the characters in this set.

In the spirit of full disclosure, the reason for the sentiment on a strip is because I messed up the stamping 😉. I had him sitting on it to try and make it more harmonious.

I hope you love this set- you’ll love some of hilarious sentiments ! Don’t leave before visiting the Clearly Besotted Blog then pop over to Mickey Mouse Michelle and Larrikin Lisa ( yup, they’re Aussie slang, you might want to google them 😂)!

Tomorrow I’m back with a card where ‘How To Train Your Dragon’ meets ‘Up’ ( minus the ugly crying!!).

    Fantastic scene & I totally get the corks. They are I’m told, to ward the flies off the face as they swing when you move you’re head & disturb the flies. Just don’t shake your head too hard, ask me how I know lol !x
