Clearly Besotted Teasers | Beary Christmas

Hello there and welcome to day two of the Clearly Besotted November 2020 Teasers. Today I am using the new Ring Around Christmas set. This set consists of a beautiful wreath, along with different critters that you can add to it (or you can use it on it's own) and wonderful sentiments too. 

I started off my card by first stamping the bear from the Clearly Besotted Ring Around Christmas Stamp Set on to white cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. I then made a mask for him and stamped the wreath over to the top. Once I removed the mask, it looks like he is sitting on top of the present/gift. They were then coloured using Copic Markers (the colours that I used are listed below the supplies section for reference). 

It was fussy cut out using scissors before adhering to the background with foam tape. The background is a panel of Hero Arts Cherry Cardstock with the edges ink blended using Tim Holtz Candied Apple, Aged Mahogany and Black Soot Distress Inks. I then splattered on Arteza Titanium White Gouache (yes, I am obsessed!). The panel was then simply adhered to an A2 white card base with tape runner. 

I took the sentiment from the Clearly Besotted Winter Plushies Stamp Set and stamped it on to black cardstock using Versamark Ink. I applied white embossing powder and heat set. It was cut in to strips and adhered to the card using thin foam tape. To finish off, I added white gel pen highlights to the baubles/ornaments.

It is quite unlike me to have no white cardstock showing on a card but I do really like how this card came out, even if it is a lot bolder in colour than I usually go!
