Clearly Besotted Teasers | Long Time No Sea

*This is my second post of the day, please see below for my Spellbinders post and video*

Hello there and welcome to day two of the Clearly Besotted August 2020 Teasers. Today I am using the super cute Dive Right In set, which is filled with adorable puppies having fun diving!

I started off my card by taking a panel of white cardstock and placing the Taylored Expressions Rectangle Masking Stencil on top. This masked off the edges of the panel so that I could stamp and ink blend inside. With the mask stencil in place, I first stamped the sea bed/ship wreck image from he Clearly Besotted Dive Right In Stamp Set at the bottom, using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. I then made a mask for the image from mask paper, cut it out and placed it on top.

I took the Clearly Besotted Wave Away Stencil and placed it on top. Using a blending brush, I then blended on Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Blueprint Sketch and Mermaid Lagoon Ink. I started at the bottom and moved the stencil up as I went. All the stencils and masks were then removed and the sea bed coloured using Copic Markers (the colours that I used are listed below the supplies area).

I stamped the sentiment from the set in the top left hand corner with more Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and then adhered the panel on to a white A2 card base with tape runner. I took the puppy and fish images from the Clearly Besotted Dive Right In Stamp Set and stamped them on to white cardstock with more black ink. They were coloured with Copic Markers and fussy cut out with scissors. They were then added to the card with foam tape. To finish off, I added Crystal Glaze to the mask/googles on the puppy.
