Clearly Besotted July Teasers – Scene It Around

June 28, 2020 at 8:00 am 7 comments

Hello again! I know it’s only nearly Christmas, I mean July! But you’ve heard of Christmas in July right? Plus it’s never too early to get a shift on with your Christmas cards. This Scene It Around II set also has a beautiful windmill scene that isn’t Christmassy, so it’s a greatly versatile set. It goes with the Scene It Around set that has a forest scene and a beach scene, so all seasons are covered. I’ve gone for a gently seasonal scene.

I used some navy pearlescent card which is softer than black and ties in well with the blue of the sky. Using some Copic Markers, I created the night sky, adding circular strokes to give an illusion of the moonlight cascading out. You can see below the sentiment which I’ve stamped on Duralar Matt which when heat embossed doesn’t warp like vellum. You can also see the sparkle of glitter on the trees ad ground. This scene would look wonderful bedecked in snow too.

I decided to add some stars and attached them to some embroidery thread. It’s easy to do. If you find some of them falling off, simply add a star behind the thread (so 2 stars sandwiching the thread between them) and that will keep them from detaching as easily. I’ve added gel pen stars to give more of a night sky and complete the scene.

I love that all of these scenes are round. I fitted mine perfectly behind a circle aperture, but they’ll look equally as good trimmed and mounted on a card front, or just stamped directly for a one layer card.

So as usual, I’ll be recommending you visit the Clearly Besotted Blog, then go and see lovely Lisa and Michelle.

I’ll be back tomorrow with another superbly cute set.
