Clearly Besotted June Teasers – Picture It Space

May 28, 2020 at 8:00 am 5 comments

Hello friends! How are you doing? I do hope that you’re surviving amidst the complex situation worldwide. Instead of focussing on the tough stuff, we’re here to give you a dose of colourful inspiration using the new sets that Clearly Besotted are releasing on June 1st. Over the next 5 days, I’ll be posting 5 projects using the different sets.

Today I’m using two sets; ‘Picture It Space’ and ‘To The Moon and Back’. They are perfectly matched and full of fun figures to colour and use in scenes.

Yes, you might suppose that the card is upside’s not! I had a story in my head of three bold and brave friends who signed up for inter-planetary bungee jumping.

You turn up, collect your bungee rope and parachute out of the craters into the galaxy below. I haven’t quite worked out how they get back..maybe there’s a pulley system or perhaps they release themselves and float towards the next planet for coffee and a cake?! 😉

I had intended to mask off the individual elements of the planet and smaller planets (it is all usefully one stamp, so need to position) but I decided against tonnes of ink blending in favour of a solid coloured background. I love the pearlescent navy cardstock, so just stamped, coloured and added each image on foam pads. Aren’t those little guys adorable!

You can see the thread below. I just cut a slit in each crater and threaded it through. You can see that I added a Union Jack as I was feeling slightly patriotic at the time!

You can see the white gel pen ‘stars’ which hopefully help it seem more ‘space’-like.

I absolutely loved creating this card. I’ve done a few cards this month without any sentiments. I can add them later, but recently I’ve been looking for cards for particular occasions and am having to discard many as the sentiment doesn’t fit the occasion. Hopefully this gives you more ideas about how you could use the sets too.

We would love you to visit the Clearly Besotted blog, then onto lovely Michelle and Lisa

I’ll be back tomorrow,

    Oh so much fun in one card! What a brilliant idea to have them bungee jumping haha!! So many great details too, I was wondering about the Union Jack image, almost went to check my set. Were you making this on VE Day??? Xx

      Haha. Nope- just feeling patriotic. Would have been weird to put the US flag!! 😂

    This is amazing! They are so cute bungee jumping off the moon! The pearlescent navy cardstock works perfectly. Love it! I understand what you mean about sentiments too. It’s really helpful to have some cards without them and you can add them later xx

    Space walk…wish I could be with these darling critters just out for a walk. The background and your meticulous coloring make them shine. Love the additions to that planet as well. This card is pure genius.
