Clearly Besotted Teasers | Keep On Swimming

Hello there and welcome to day three of the Clearly Besotted Teasers. Not long to wait for the new release now, the new sets release on Friday, 5th February 2021. For my card today, I am back with the Clearly Contained set, that I shared on Thursday for day one. This time, I am pairing it with the Clearly Contained Contents. As the name suggests, the set is filled with fabulous items that can be inside the containers, or again some can be used separately too. 

I started off by stamping the round vase/bowl image from the Clearly Besotted Clearly Contained Stamp Set on to white cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. I then stamped the fish image from the Clearly Besotted Clearly Contained Contents Stamp Set inside. I made a mask for the fish and then stamped the plants on top (I think these are supposed to be succulents, but I have made them into water plants for my card!). The mask was removed and the image coloured to look like a fish bowl. It was then fussy cut out with scissors. 

I took a panel of white cardstock and stamped the sentiment on to it from the Clearly Besotted Dive Right In Stamp Set, using more Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. I took the Clearly Besotted Round & Round Stencil and masked off individual circles so that I could add them to the card to look a bit like bubbles. Once masked off, the circles were blended using Tim Holtz Peacock Feathers and Blueprint Sketch Distress Inks. 

The panel was adhered to an A2 white card base with foam tape. I then added the fish bowl on top with more foam tape. To finish off, I added white gel pen highlights to the fish bowl and added Lucy's Cards Raindrops around the bubbles.

  1. I always admire your cards, but this one? Harpoon straight through the heart! (Ooops. Maybe something a fish doesn't like to hear.)
    Best, Kat
