Clearly Besotted Teasers | Make A Splash!

Hello there and welcome to day three of the September 2018 Clearly Besotted Teasers. I hope you are enjoying the peeks so far. The new products release on the 1st September. Today I am using the super cute Rainy Day Play stamp set. Yes, the hippos are back! :)

I started off by stamping one of the hippos and the splash marks from the Rainy Day Play set on to white cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. I wanted to have the hippo be in a rain storm, so I decided to get inspiration from this card by Sandy Allnock. I also used background elements from this card by Elaine Hughes.
All of the colouring was done with Copic Markers (the colours I used are listed below the supplies section) and then I used the colourless blender to create some rain drops, as well as a fine 05 point white gel pen. The image was cut out with a circle die. I took an A2 white card base and embossed a slightly larger circle die on to the front. The image panel was then added on top with foam tape. The sentiment was stamped on to black cardstock with Versamark Ink and white heat embossed. This was added to the card with more foam tape.

  7. Sweet card! Love that adorable hippo!

  8. I can’t agree more : these hippos are irresistibly cute ! And you did a great job with the rain. I knew Sandy’s card, and her “rain” definitely caught my eyes! But you have nothing to envy her !

  9. The rain on that is just amazing. It's like a summer holiday in Scotland really.... the hippo is so adorable. Like my littlies when they were really wee - or actually at the age they are now - just loving making a mess in puddles! xx

  10. I love the rain affect. So cute!
