Clearly Besotted September Teasers Day 4

August 31, 2019 at 8:00 am 7 comments

Hello Clearly Besotted fans. It’s Day 4 already? I do hope you’re enjoying the different styles using the one ‘Pop Up Monster’ set.

Today is a different look again. It’s amazing what stripping back colour and adding it in a different form can do. I’ve simply stamped the monsters in a line. Over the top, I positioned the ‘Under The Weather’ stencil on the cloud part and instead of adding colour, I just traced along the edges of the stencil using a black fineliner. When I got the end of the first part of the stencil, I flipped it over and stencilled the second half so it became a mirror image and matched up perfectly!

For the colour, I added little punched out hearts. I drew some blue alcohol marker pen along the right of the clouds and added some detail with the fineliner again. Easy enough for anyone to do.

What is less easy is to fit the cards into the story ( the story came after the cards 😂).

So we left our intrepid foodie monster rushing out of the vintage hair salon, tightly grasping the brown paper parcel….

Stephjen didn’t stop running until she came to a strange open piece of land. It was like a meadow but devoid of colour. There was a row of monsters, perfectly stationary and very quiet. They appeared unthreatening in a soft woollen cosy blanket kind of way and she felt emboldened enough to peek inside the parcel.

She unwrapped the string with the delicacy of a paediatric heart surgeon and stood staring blankly at the contents.

It was hard, wedge shaped and smelled like something had died inside. Despite her misgivings, she decided to eat a little corner. As her mouth closed around the food, the little creatures in a row started to smile. In fact, so did the sky, and out tumbled tiny coloured hearts from the clouds that Stephjen was sure was about to herald an announcement.

The cheese was delicious, with an almost familiar taste, not dissimilar to the liquid foodstuff from her planet GreenCheese. There was indeed a message, but a subtle one that lay underneath the cheese. As she opened the paper, it read ‘was it worth it?’

She looked, and read, and reread, waiting for the confusion to dissipate. What did the cryptic message mean?…… ( all will be revealed tomorrow!!)

You can see the fun sentiment from the ‘Happy Everything’ set. Such a joy-filled one; I love that saying!

 Now I’ve finished waffling on, please head over to the Clearly Besotted blog, then do pop over to Lisa and Michelle, then last but by no means least, head over to our guest designer Joy Taylor.

See you for release day tomorrow!!

    “Something had died inside”!! Too too funny. And yet she still nibbled it! Keren, you have created yet another little work of art, love the little hearts and happy monsters in their meadow. So creative, such a different look and feel to all the others this week! Xx

    Oh this is so cute, Keren! I love how you have done the clouds – fantastic! Love all those little hearts too and the monsters look fabulous with little colour. I’m glad that Stephjen got to taste the cheese, I’m looking forward to the next part xx

    Hahah! Brave of her to eat it….. but I love the outline lok on this and the use of the stencil is brilliant. Can’t wait to see what the outcome is! xx

    I though yesterday’s was my favorite but now this is my favorite. How clever to use the color as an accent rather than in the focal point. Such a happy, sweet card.
