Clearly Besotted May Teasers Day 1

Hello! How are you? It’s Teaser time (which always makes me think of the 80s ‘hammer time’!!)

We have some gorgeous sets for you this release which are a little different and I loved this set ‘Stationery Plushies’ as you can use it in an illustrative way or ramp up the ‘cute’ with the fun office themed characters. I chose to combine them…

Most of the image has been coloured with Copic Markers and then I’ve added shading and detailing using Prismacolor pencils. I did love how the alcohol markers react with each other, so I could put ‘faux’ rays of light bouncing off the leaves by just stroking the lighter colour over the darker one. I wouldn’t usually do that, but any ink transfer doesn’t stay on the lighter pen and gives such a great effect.

Little Miss Stapler is wandering around at night, mischievously stapling everything in sight. Her owner is going to get quite a surprise when they find staples hammered into their Ikea desk 😉

The sentiment which is a perfect pairing comes from an older set called ‘Brighter Days’, and I think this would be a fun way to send up a ‘keep going’ cheerful note to a friend who is having a tough time.

We have some lovely returning guests this month, but first do visit the Clearly Besotted blog (plus they’re on Instagram too). As usual, please also go and visit my lovely teamie Michelle Short.

Then we have Francine Vuilleme, Kitty Day and Alberto Gava to visit who always create amazing things!

I’m sure they’d love you to comment on what they’ve created.

Hope to see you again tomorrow,

Keren x

    This is amazing, Keren! Your colouring is fantastic, I love those light rays and the staples add a great touch to the card! What a great idea! xx

    What a great effect you’ve created with the light and it sounds somewhat easy to recreate. It really brings this still life to life.
