Clearly Besotted Teasers | Best In the World

Hello there and welcome to day two of the Clearly Besotted September 2019 Teasers. Today I have a fun card to share with you using the new Pop Up Monsters stamp set. The monsters just have a head and arms so can be used to pop up behind objects, or as in my case, sit in the spaceship.

I started off my card by stamping the spaceship image from the Clearly Besotted Pop Up Monsters Stamp Set on to white cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. I then masked the bottom portion of the window and stamped one of the monsters from the set inside. Because of the masking, you do not see the monsters hands sadly but hopefully it still works ok. I then stamped the stars from the set a few times as well.
The images were coloured using Copic Markers (the colours that I used are listed below the supplies area) and fussy cut out with scissors. I did add some highlights to the spaceship with a white gel pen. These were then set aside while I worked on the background.
I took a panel of watercolour paper and blended Distress Inks on to it. I first added small areas of Picked Raspberry, Wilted Violet, Squeezed Lemonade and Dried Marigold. I then filled in all other areas (as well as a light layer on top of the colours) using Chipped Sapphire and Blueprint Sketch. Finally I added a layer of Black Soot to darken the areas even more. I then splattered on some water, as well as Picket Fence Distress Spray Stain and set the piece aside to dry.
Once dry, I added the panel on to an A2 white card base with tape runner. I then added the stars on top with liquid glue. I took the sentiments from the Clearly Besotted Happy Birthday All Stamp Set and stamped them on to black cardstock with Versamark Ink. I applied white detail embossing powder and heat set. They were cut in to strips and added to the card with foam tape. I then added the monster in his spaceship on top with a mini action wobble so that he bounces around.
