Clearly Besotted Nov Teasers Day One!

October 28, 2019 at 8:00 am 7 comments

Well hey everyone! The countdown to the beginning of the Clearly Besotted has rolled around again. We’re off!!!

Today’s project combines two new sets; ‘Balloon Bunch Backdrops’ and ‘Balloon Bunch Buddies’. Try saying that quickly!!

I wanted to create a space themed card and pictured the little guys getting lost in space whilst stuck inside their balloons.

It left me with the slight issue of how to show they were actually inside the balloons so I decided to stamp the balloon and critter together and simply cut out the middles using a craft knife. I do love a therapeutic bit of fussy cutting!

The little guys were stamped and coloured with a little alcohol markers before adding some more colour and texture with Prismacolors. Pencil and marker combo is a great shortcut!

I stamped the background galaxy onto the base card and then coloured with alcohol markers and added some purples and blues using AquaFlow markers. Add in a little white gel pen and it’s done! There are lots of fab sentiments with the Balloon Bunch Buddies to choose from. Reach for the stars just fitted perfectly!

We’re here for the next few days until release day on the 1st November and you’ve got the Clearly Besotted Blog to visit every day plus my lovely teamies – Michelle Short and Lisa Tilson

I’ll be back tomorrow with some more stampy goodness!

    Your fussy cutting is incredible…I’d probably cut off my fingers. But enough about me. Let’s talk about this adorable, spectacular card. So creative, unique and adorable. Keep saying this and I mean it, I’d really love to have just one little cell from your brain. I’d give it back after I was finished with it, she lied.

    Wow! That’s some serious fussy cutting! Although I’m a little concerned they are so high up and in bubbles, but they look happy enough! xx
