Clearly Besotted Teasers | Skiing By To Say Hi

Hello there and welcome to day two of the Clearly Besotted December 2020 Teasers. Today I have a card to share with you using the new Snow Day Play Stamp Set. This is such a cute set with little hippos skating, skiing, snowboarding and falling over in the snow/ice! 

I started of by creating the background piece. I took the landscape/house/tree image from the Clearly Besotted Snow Day Play Stamp Set on to white cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. I then cut this down using an MFT Stitched Circle STAX Die-namics. I also cut a further circle using the dies too. With the stamped one, I fussy cut around the top edge with scissors and then coloured it using Copic Markers (the colours that I used are listed below the supplies area). 

With the full circle piece, I blended Distress Inks on for a winter sky. I used Picked Raspberry, Seedless Preserves and then a bit of Chipped Sapphire at the top to darken it further. I then splattered on Arteza White Gouache for the snow and let it sit to dry. Once dry, the stamped landscape was adhered on top with tape runner and they were both then adhered flat to an A2 white card base. 

I took one of the skiing hippos from the Snow Day Play set and stamped it on to white cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. It was coloured using Copic Markers, fussy cut out and added to the card with foam tape. I took the sentiment from the set and stamped it on to black cardstock with Versamark Ink. I applied white embossing powder and heat set. It was cut in to a strip and added to the card with more foam tape. To finish off, I added Tonic Nuvo White Blizzard Glitter Drops to the bobble on the hippo's hat.
