Clearly Besotted May Teasers Day 1

Hello everyone!

How are you doing? I’m so happy to be back with this month’s Clearly Besotted teasers. There’s definitely a real variety of sets and you’re going to love them!

First up is the fun new set ‘Spelling Bee’ which has bees for every occasion!

Isn’t it cute!

Bertha has a Birthday. Her friend bought her a shiny new red bag which is her favourite colour albeit a little hard to hold whilst you’re flying. She also got given an enormous chocolate and peanut butter Birthday cake which she devoured. The only issue now is that she.. ermm… can’t fit through the entrance to the bee hive!

I wanted to make it look like a tree with branches. Part of the set contains the branch which I fancied adding leaves to, so added in the foliage from Clearly Contained Cuts.

You can see the leaves that I’ve coloured in with alcohol markers along with the beehive and branch. I trimmed out the leaves and attached them to the branch. I added them to the card using foam pads for extra dimension. Next I wanted to create more of a scenic look so decided to add some watercolour in blue around the scene but not in a straight line, following the direction of the branch.

It’s a pretty simple process and I added some little black fineliner dots to complete the look along with a sentiment.

As usual we have more inspiration for you, so do head over to the Clearly Besotted blog then onto Michelle, Lisa and we are so happy to have Francine Vuilleme guesting again for us along with the lovely Adelle Emery x

Until tomorrow,

Keren x

    Bertha is adorable and that cake sounds delicious! I love how you added the leaves to the branch. Your fussy cutting skills are phenomenal! xx

    I do love it when you do stories to your card design. I understand Bertha’s issues with not fitting back into things, lockdown hasn’t bee n good for my weight either, let alone cake x

    Well isn’t this just so much fun! I adore little Bertha and her snazzy red bag. I think its a patent one, something extra special just for her. Also eating too much cake reminded me of a little bear who ate too much honey! Xx

    I’m a real “bee” person so this card appeals to me greatly. Love the sweet, precious bee and his hanging hive.
