Clearly Besotted July Release Day 4 Teasers

Thankyou for popping by to my blog again. If you’re only visiting for the first time today, I’m showcasing some sneak peeks of the Clearly Besotted July Release. Today’s stamp set is Wild Times- and these monkeys are definitely having just that!

If you remember me mentioning a few days that I’d be using the Cute Koala tiny leaves again; here it is! I drew some feint pencil lines mimicking low hanging forest vegetation and then stamped the leaves randomly along those lines. Once that was done, I simply drew in any visible pencil lines with a Rystar Technic fineliner (0.1).

I stamped the monkeys in slightly different colours so it didn’t look all the same and then mounted them on foam pads and to make them look like their tails were actually hanging from the branches, I added another leaf over the top.

Adding some Woodland Green Nuvo drops added a little texture and I left a large portion blank intentionally. You could add your sentiment anywhere, but I’m leaving it blank so I’m all ready whenever I need a card for any occasion!

This set has matching dies, which are always useful! I fussy cut mine, but then you knew I love doing that already!

The inspiration isn’t over yet; do visit the Clearly Besotted Blog plus the lovely Lisa and Michelle too!

See you tomorrow for Release Day and a last peek!

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.
