Clearly Besotted Teasers | Sloth Like Christmas

Hello there and welcome to day one of the Clearly Besotted October 2020 Teasers. The new sets release on the 1st October 2020 and from now until then we will be sharing teasers using the new sets. For my card today, I am using the new Eat Snooze & Be Merry set. This is such a fun set with sloths in different poses for winter and Christmas. 

I started off by stamping the sloth hanging from the decorations from the Clearly Besotted Eat Snooze & Be Merry Stamp Set on to white cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. I coloured him using Copic Markers (the colours that I used are listed below the supplies list) and then fussy him out using scissors. 

I took a panel of white cardstock and placed the Taylored Expressions Rectangle Masking Stencil on top. Using the Clearly Besotted Cloudy Day Stencil, I then blended on clouds with Distress Inks. I used Seedless Preserves at the top, followed by Picked Raspberry and Dried Marigold at the bottom. With the stencil in place, I splattered on some water and then a mixture of Perfect Pearls and water. I then splattered on Arteza White Titanium Gouache. I removed the stencil and let it sit to dry. 

Once dry, the panel was added to an A2 white card base with tape runner. I then added the sloth at the top with foam tape. I took the sentiment from the set and stamped it on to black cardstock using Versamark Ink. I applied white embossing powder and heat set. It was cut in to a strip and added to the card with foam tape. To finish off, I added Tonic Nuvo Crystal Glaze to the decorations and then Lucy's Pink Moonshine Sequins around the sentiment.

The colour combination is a little unconventional for a Christmas card but I used it recently and really loved it. I thought it would make a fun background for the sloth.
