Clearly Besotted January Teasers Day 2

Welcome back! It’s so nice having a little more time to visit blogs and see what everyone’s been up to on social media. Today we’re looking at the set ‘Gnome One Like You’. Great title for a stamp set, isn’t it!

I’ve gone for the world at the top of the Faraway Tree vibe!! You know those Enid Blyton books “The Magic Faraway Tree’, where the worlds at the top of the tree kept changing? Well it’s a magical one, and quite a nice one too.

He’s blue because he’s kind of a smurf, with a beard and he’s been collecting flowers for his friend who he’s missed dreadfully hence the sentiment! I think we all have been missing people this year and that sentiment is going to be so useful for so many people.

As usual, the images are coloured in with alcohol markers and arranged on some patterned paper. I’ve used the Raindrops from Little Things from Lucy’s Cards.

Then…. it’s time to visit the Clearly Besotted Blog plus lovely Lisa and magnificent Michelle

Clearly Besotted January Teasers Day 1

Helloooo!! I hope you’ve had a wonderful Christmas. Just like that, it’s just over for another year and we’re swinging into Teaser Time!

Today I’m using a set called ‘Creating Chemistry’ and it’s cute meets love meets nerd with a little ‘best teacher’ thrown in for good measure; i.e. the perfect all rounder set and great for teens and blokes too!

The story behind this is a little fantastical- so bear with me!! Yes, it is supposed to be a double helix, and no, I haven’t lost the plot (I lost that a long time ago!!). The double helix was drawn freehand to go with the idea I had in my head.

There were three cute scientists trying to solve the problem of unrequited love. They were getting closer to finding the magical ingredient that would make everyone fall in love with you. Despite warnings from other leading scientists that the world wasn’t ready for this discovery, they continued with their quest.

The formula had be calculated and the proofs were ready. They decided to create the formula and unfortunately it caused an explosion. The scientists shrunk to the microscopic size where a double helix was larger than them and it spun them around, creating a mini cyclone which split the helix and tiny shards flew across the room. Is there a happy ending? No, only a sage warning that no-one needs everyone to fall in love with them- it could get very complicated!

The scientists never regained their size, they live under the floorboards of a laboratory conducting experiments of their own!!

So now we’d love you to visit the Clearly Besotted blog, Michelle and Lisa! They’ll have wonderful cards and tags for you, and hopefully with a little more sanity in them!

See you tomorrow,

Keren xx
