Clearly Besotted December Teasers Day 4

November 30, 2020 at 8:00 am 4 comments

Hello lovely blog visitors, how are you today? I said today’s post was about heading towards a celebration and the set I’m showing today is called ‘Year Of You’. It contains all the animals for each Chinese Year of the … plus a few other elements too. When I saw the set it made me think of many scenes that I’ve seen with people letting off Chinese lanterns, so I created this.

It’s actually quite hard to make a realistic backdrop…and you may not want to try and replicate this as it took a load of colouring and it didn’t even look smooth. It looks streaky! I suspect that if I’d added a few more layers then maybe it would have ended up looking much better.

This little guy is sat on a jetty somewhere gazing into the night sky. I’ve used the little tiger. Isn’t he adorable.

You can see the pencil markings above, I was trying to make it look like the glow of the lanterns. I added gold stars and white gel pen for a little more atmosphere.

It’s amazing how you can take two small images and conjure up a whole card with them. They may be small, but they are mighty!!

    Wow! This is amazing, Keren! Those patterns look stunning against the black, you have really made them sparkle! That tiger is so cute looking up at the beauty in the sky! xx

    I think it looks really striking! You really get that pop of colour with the lanterns against the black. Can’t wait to see the whole release xx

    I don’t think it looks streaky at all and I love how dramatic it is especially with the myriad of lanterns and stars. It’s really pretty Keren. The whole scene just looks perfect with the little tiger and big sky xx

    Can’t see the streaks you’re going on about. Looks exactly like what I’d envision lanterns would look like in the night sky. Think this idea is brilliant (no pun intended) and well executed. Of course, I wouldn’t expect anything less from you.
