Clearly Besotted June Teasers Day 3

Hi! I’m so glad you’ve loving the sneak peeks so far. Today we have an Olympic sport, and certainly not one I’d ever attempt. I loved watching it. So did Effie, who had always wanted to join in the Elephant Community Sport team but just couldn’t afford all the equipment. She loved a challenge and her mind went to the Pole Vault. That was one she longed to try. But how would she get over? How to sail over that striped pole high in the sky.

She’d heard stories of the magical blue flowers and how if you wished hard enough, they could help make your dreams come true. That morning, her mind was made up, she’d go and try to discover these evasive blooms. After a long morning, she was leaving the wood and out of the corner of her eye she saw a bluish tinge. Lolloping over she saw one really large blue blousy bloom. Without thinking she grabbed it and raced over to the community athletics track. She had no training or idea, she just tried to recall what the Olympians did and ran as far away from the poles as she could manage.

Gathering speed, so ran as quickly as her legs were carry her. With a jump, she squeezed the flower, wished with all her might and to her amazement she sailed up, light as a feather and sailed gently over the top pole. With complete exhilaration she looked down, feeling like a bird and gradually descended as a cloud back to the squidgy blue mat. Her dreams had come true.

The card was really easy to make. Firstly I added some washi tape around the edges of a tall card and then used the In The Clouds Stencil from Clearly Besotted. I just used Broken China and Tumbled Glass Distress Ink. I cut two strip of red cardstock to make the side struts and then a thinner piece of red cardstock to add some white/green cardstock with angled ends.

Using one of the main images from the new Flower Friends set, it was easy to colour! Obviously the flower stalk was what gave Effie the extra oomph to get over the bar.

You can see how I’ve added a darker coloured alcohol ink pen to the mat and side poles. It just helps give a slight dimension to the scene.

I love creating unexpected scenes from the fabulous Clearly Besotted images. I wonder what scenes you might imagine these flower holding elephants being involved with?

This month, we have lots of inspiration. The best start is to go to the Clearly Besotted Blog, then onto Michelle and Lisa. We also have Alberto @loshakeratoalberto on Instagram, Francine VuillemeKeeway Tsao and Kitty Day so do visit them to see what they’ve been creating.

Hope to see you tomorrow with a some fruity fun.

    I’ve got to remember that blue flowers are magic and grow some…lots of things I’ve always wanted to do, too. Effie is definitely a winner, though. As is the card…so clever, both her story and the brilliant layout. You continue to bring me such joy.
