Hello there and welcome to day four of the Clearly Besotted December Teasers. Release day is tomorrow but I have one last teaser to share with you today before the reveal. Today I am using two new sets - Picture It Stars and Seeing Stars. They do work nicely together but can be used separately too.
I started off by taking a panel of white cardstock and stamping the Clearly Besotted Picture It Stars Stamp Set at the top. If you are unfamiliar with the Picture It series, these sets are backgrounds where the work has already been done for you. No masking required!
I coloured the sky first with Copic Markers, followed by the trees, telescope and landscape (the colours that I used are listed below the supplies area). I then took the sentiment from the Clearly Besotted Seeing Stars 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 a strip and added below the landscape background using tape runner.
The Seeing Stars stamp set represents the different star/zodiac signs. I took Taurus the bull and stamped him on to more white cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. I coloured him using Copic Markers, fussy cut him out and added him to the panel with foam tape. The whole panel was then added to an A2 white card base with foam tape. To finish off, I added Sakura Glaze Pen to the stars in the sky, as well as adding a few more stars with a white gel pen.

My star sign is Gemini but I thought that the bull made more sense for the scene. I love that you can customise them to the recipient though!
