Clearly Besotted Teasers | Ho Ho Ho!

Hello there and welcome to day four of the Clearly Besotted November 2020 Teasers. Release day is tomorrow and I have one last teaser to share with you today. Today I am using the super cute Balloon Bunch Christmas set which consists of different people and critters that can be flying in the air attached to balloons. I thought it would be fun to have Santa delivering presents this way! 

I started off by taking a panel of white cardstock and stamping the houses image from the Clearly Besotted Balloon Bunch Christmas Stamp Set towards the bottom. I then stamped the little Santa above and then the balloons above him. I masked off his hand while stamping the balloons so that it looks like he is holding them. I then made masks for all of the images and placed them over the panel. 

I took the Clearly Besotted Cloudy Day Stencil and placed this over the panel. Using a blending brush, I then blended on Tim Holtz Chipped Sapphire Ink Distress Ink, moving the stencil down the panel as I went. Before removing the masks, I splattered on Arteza Titanium White Gouache. I then coloured the images using Copic Markers (the colours that I used are listed below the supplies area). The panel was adhered flat to an A2 white card base. 

I took the Clearly Besotted Tiled It Stencil and placed this on to a panel of white cardstock. I took a pencil and lightly traced around it. Using a craft knife and ruler I then cut out the windows and then adhered it on top of the card using foam tape. The sentiment, from the new Clearly Besotted Christmas Characters Stamp Set was stamped on to black cardstock using Versamark Ink. I applied white embossing powder and heat set. It was then cut out using a Simon Says Stamp Stitched Circle Die and adhered to the card using a combination of foam tape and tape runner.
