Clearly Besotted September Teasers Day 2

August 29, 2020 at 8:00 am 9 comments

Hi again! Thanks for being with me yesterday. Your comments really make my day, so I’m thankful for every one of them. Today I’ve got a wonderful critter scene going on.

The little guys are in the final of the mushroom jumping national final. It’s a complex competition, judging the gaps between the fungi and having enough bounce to get to the next one. Hippo is in the lead. Fancy dress is optional but hey, it’s the finals so he busted out his pumpkin outfit.

You can see the background- which keeping in with the colour combo, I’ve gone for Distress Oxide Spiced Marmalade. If you’ve ever struggled with blending- do invest in the Oxides, as you can get near perfect blending with very little skill! I added ink to just half of the card. I wanted plenty of white on my design.

I’ve combined 3 stamp sets. The two critters are from the Ring Around Autumn I showed you yesterday. Hippo is from Fall Fun and the mushroom image is from Happy Campers. Colouring in all the images using Alcohol markers ( Copic and Nuvo) and then Prismacolor pencils. Add in all the pen detailing plus the sentiments from Happy Campers.

I loved creating this card. Tomorrow’s card is a thoroughly windswept affair.

Do visit the Clearly Besotted blog, then onto Francine’s blog, plus my lovely teamies, Lisa and Michelle

See you tomorrow xx
