Clearly Besotted Teasers | Just A Note

Hello there and welcome to day three of the Clearly Besotted March 2019 Teasers. Not long to wait now, all the new products will be available to purchase on Friday. Today I am using a new mini set called Budgie Buddies. Now, my scene doesn't really work for a budgie as they are usually in cages, rather than perching on branches outside but never mind! ;)

I started off by taking the branch image from the Cheeky Monkey set and stamping it on to white cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. I then stamped one of the birds from the Budgie Buddies set so that he was standing on it. I extended the branch slightly with a black Copic Multiliner and then coloured the image with Copic Markers (the colours that I used are listed below the supplies area). I then fussy cut the image out with scissors (but there is a coordinating die set for the birds).
I took a sheet of mask paper and die cut a Hero Arts Nesting Infinity Heart die from it. This was placed on to the front of an A2 white card base. Using the MFT Mini Cloud Edges Stencil, I blended Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Ink on top to create a sky. The mask was removed and the sentiment from the Tiny Type set stamped with black ink. I then added the image on top with foam tape.

Like I say, the scene doesn't technically work for a budgie, but I like how the card came out none the less! Thank you so much for popping by today. For more inspiration, please check out my CB teamies Stephanie, Keren and Lisa. See you tomorrow for day four. Have a great day!


  1. Love these birds. Love your cards.

  2. So cute! I love the heart shape with clouds and the fact the bird is sitting on the branch! Cheers, Dotty

  3. Fantastic card design Michelle. Now you have to think that the design works just fine as when a budgie escapes it sits on the branches of the tree while waiting for its owner to open the door back up. Thank you for sharing x

  4. Sweet card! Love this adorable bird!

  5. I love it regardless! I'm now singing 'There'll be blue birds over.......' although the heart clouds will have to do for the white cliffs. It's been a great release so far! x
