Clearly Besotted Teasers | Do What You Love

Hello there and welcome to day two of the Clearly Besotted August 2019 Release Teasers. Today I am using a fun new set called Shelve It. The set consists of different images that can be added on to a shelf. I decided it would be fun to use the craft/art items but not have them on the actual shelf.

I started off by taking the craft items image (it is all one stamp) from the Shelve It Stamp Set and stamped it on to vellum using Versamark Ink. I applied Detail White Embossing Powder and heat set. I then fussy cut the image out with scissors and set it aside while I worked on my background.

I took a panel of Yupo paper and added Tim Holtz Alcohol inks on top. I wanted to create a fun, bright rainbow look to contrast against my vellum image. I used Watermelon, Peach Bellini, Lemonade, Citrus, Clover, Sailboat Blue, Amethyst and Purple Twilight inks. I added one colour at a time and moved the ink around using an air spritzer tool. I then flicked on some Alcohol Ink Blending Solution with a paintbrush and set aside to dry.

The alcohol ink piece was cut down and adhered to the front of an A2 white card base with tape runner. I then cut two panels of white cardstock using the Mama Elephant Landscape Border Trio Dies and added these to the card with foam tape. The vellum piece was then popped behind the bottom edge and adhered with small dots of Multi Medium Matte glue. To finish off, I white heat embossed the sentiment from the same Shelve It Stamp Set on to black cardstock, cut it down and added it to the card with more foam tape.
