Clearly Besotted July Teasers – Summer Corners

June 30, 2020 at 8:00 am 4 comments

Hi again! Welcome to my blog for any of you who are new. We’re focussing on the latest Clearly Besotted release which is out tomorrow and I’m sharing projects using each of the sets. Today’s focus is on Summer Corners which is almost guaranteed to have you slapping on suncream and grabbing your summer hat in anticipation. It seems that we’ve had lots of summery days and hopefully not our last!

Summer Corners has 2 alternate ‘corners’ plus a single flamingo with a flower and leaf so there are lots of options. After making my card, I just couldn’t decide upon a sentiment, so I’ve left it blank ready for a ‘birthday’ or ‘hi’ card. I’ve used simple colouring with my Copics. For the leaves I’ve used the blender pen to dot onto the leaves. You have to go over the dots a few times, but the blender pushes away the colour and you’re left a bleached sort of look which adds some lovely texture to the leaves.

I’ve added my usual white gel pen work onto the other leaves, flowers and fabulous flamingo and then placed the panel in front of some more Lawn Fawn ‘Really Rainbow’ paper.

The whole vibe is really tropical and lovely- just what summer’s should be about. It might be more like ‘BBQ in your back garden’ this summer but hey, we can dream!

Next up, we have the Clearly Besotted blog to visit, then onto Lisa and Michelle for some gorgeousness.

See you tomorrow for Release Day!

    So super cute. I love the way it’s hanging over the edge, but that little flamingo is so cute! Goes well with the patterned paper too. Looks like another great release xx

    Absolutely gorgeous, Keren! Your colouring is fabulous and of course, I love all the dots! The card screams summer to me! xx

    Oh I love this Keren. Your colouring is just so pretty and the two types of dots really add interest. I’ve not done that bleaching thing in ages, I forget about all these details that make such a difference. Beautiful card and I’m going to have to get a pack of that paper 🙈 xx

    Simply lovely and, oh so, tropical. Reminds me of pictures I’ve seen of lush, colorful gardens with the added bonus of the sweet flamingo. I’m curious what the dimensions are of your tall, slim cards?
