Clearly Besotted Teasers | Wonderful Couple

Hello there and welcome to day four of the Clearly Besotted December 2019 Teasers. Not long to wait now, the new products release tomorrow at 8pm GMT. For my last teaser, I am using the adorable Love Notes set. We are continuing the love theme with this fabulous set but I think you can use it for different occasions too. There are different critters writing messages in this set, I went with the hippos for my card.

I started off by stamping the hippo on the right from the Clearly Besotted Love Notes Stamp Set on to white cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. I then mirror stamped this to get the hippo on the left. For this, I stamped the image on to the Waffle Flower Water Media Mat and then placed the cardstock on top. The ink then transfers to the cardstock to give a mirror image. The lines are not perfect but I went over them with a black Copic Multi-liner. I coloured them with Copic Markers (the colours that I used are listed below the supplies area) and fussy cut them out with scissors.
I then stamped the heart image that the hippos are painting and fussy cut that out too. I took the sentiment from the Clearly Besotted Feeling Sentimental Stamp Set and stamped this on to black cardstock with Versamark Ink. I applied detail white embossing powder and heat set. This was cut in to a strip and set aside while I worked on the background.
I took a panel of white cardstock and masked off the bottom portion. I took Distress Inks in Aged Mahogany, Candied Apple and Festive Berries and blended these on to the top of the panel. I then spritzed it heavily with Sparkle Sheer Shimmer Spritz and set it aside to dry. Once dry, I added the sentiment strip below the inking, cut the edges and added it to a white A2 card base with tape runner. The hippos and heart were then added on top with foam tape. To finish off, I added Nuvo Crystal Glaze to the paint on the brushes and the heart.

I ended up colouring the hippos a bit darker than I would have liked really, but I didn't want to waste them after colouring. I initially coloured the paintbrushes in blue and then decided that I wanted them red. I managed to colour over the top but that is why they look even darker!
