Clearly Besotted July Teasers Day 1

Hello blog friends and any new visitors! It’s lovely to be here with July’s Clearly Besotted teasers.

Today I’ve got a set to show you called Cute Koala. It’s a 3- step image set with 3 different bears. They’re really cute and fun to make a scene with. One of my favourite images from the set is the 2 mini leaves as there’s so much you can do with them. Look out for another scene coming up that uses these tiny leaves.


You can see the two different ways I’ve done it- the two larger bears are created using the lightest colour ink first and then the darker brown and the black last.

I tried it the other way around to see how it worked; you can see with the tiny bear, he’s a different shade and that’s because I used the black first and then the other two colours. Those 2 layers have dulled the black a little but I like the almost fuzzy effect you get this way around!


The set also has the bamboo-esque stalks and these can be stamped on top of each other to create longer stems. It’s really versatile. If you stamp them in un-koala colours, you’ll change the look completely.

The background was made quickly just by scribbling some Nuvo Aquaflow pen. The whole thing came together easily.

Clearly Besotted July Teasers Day 2

Teaser Time

Hey! Welcome to Day 2 of the Clearly Besotted July Release teasers!

Today I’m just showing you one set. Probably my second favourite set of the bunch. It’s called Colour Chameleon and has the cutest little guys inIMG_5980

Little Chummy (it could be his real name!) is sat chilling on a leaf and is balancing a paintbrush from the end of a leaf. Obviously the paintbrush is dripping a beautiful rainbow of colour .

IMG_5987Isn’t he just so sweet.

The next image is of Chummy with a crayon. You could have him making a splash of colour with some of the colour ‘swipe’ stamps but I thought he was clinging onto the crayon rather tightly and maybe just maybe he was jetting off to space on his crayon rocket.


The clouds aren’t from this set (they’re from the ‘Trouble in a Tutu) set and I’ve stamped them in Pearl Sky Blue Brilliance. Brilliance is a great pad, as it’s easy to pull colour away from the stamped lines and create a soft cloud effect.


I’ve just swiped coloured inkpads over the solid stamp and then trimmed out. I hope the jets give way soon as poor Chummy is holding on for dear life!

Do visit the Clearly Besotted blog to see what Stephanie and the rest of the team ┬áplus two very special guests have created. I love seeing everyone’s take on each set!

See you tomorrow
