Clearly Besotted September Teasers Day 2

Hey! Welcome back to Day two of Teasers for the Clearly Besotted September Release. As I explained yesterday, I’m ringing the changes and only covering one set; ‘Pop Up Monsters’.

We left Stephjen (our main alien monster character) being forcibly removed from GreenCheese by an archenemy.

Stephjen thought that she’d end up next to Egglemaniac, but instead she was energetically ejected from the long pipe and arrived in a tank area which was just like a giant fish bowl. Myriads of creatures were floating around aimlessly, but in a fantastically ordered formation. No-one was bumping into another, nor the enormous planets that were whizzing by as if they were light as air. On the other side of the dome was a partition and everything was black and white and still. No-one moved; they were frozen.

Stephjen instinctively knew that the opposite area was not the place to go. They were living creatures, with the life and joy drained out of them.

At this point, she wondered where her wish had gone wrong. Had the wish for food sounded like something else. She started trying to remember the words in that programme, and try as she might, the words weren’t coming. Vint..erg chai. Vint arj heer. Chintage Heese? Vinterj air. She said the last one very forcibly and the tank started to spin. Initially it was a slow gentle rhythmic movement that got progressively faster. Had she known much about earth, she’d have likened it to being spun in a washing machine.

Whatever it was, she suspected that her life wasn’t going anywhere good right this moment…

(more on the story tomorrow).

I loved creating the contrast of the black and white versus the colour. This would be lovely as an activity card with a bunch of crayons for a kid or even stamped in a notebook for a cute gift. The sentiment is from a new set called ‘Happy Everything’. It’s a lovely mix of fonts that covers lots of different occasions. I’ve added little details such as the rocket jet ‘air’ and the left behind particles from the shooting stars, just using a black fineliner. It’s simple and gives more depth to the scene.

Do go and visit our guestie Joy Taylor, then onto the Clearly Besotted Blog, before seeing the lovely creations from Lisa & Michelle’s blogs

See you tomorrow (with Stephjen too) x

    Great design with the combination of black and white and coloured in images. The dots really add to the design. Looking forward to hearing what’s next for Stephjen! xx

    What a fab design Keren! I always love to see cards where a portion is black and white. And the rocket air and star trails look wonderful. As you say they add just that little bit extra. I hope Stephjen doesn’t get motion sickness 🤢

    OOOh, this card is brilliant, literally and figuratively. Such color and it would be fun for a youngster to color, as well. Concurrently, this story is getting better and better right along with the cards. Cannot wait for the next installment. Hope you’re writing these down for later publication.

    Stephjen! This is an exciting adventure! I love that you could colour the rest of the card yourself 🙂
