Clearly Besotted Teasers | Birthday Fun

Hello there and welcome to day one of the Clearly Besotted June 2021 Teasers. Release day is Saturday 5th June and from now until then, we will be sharing teasers using the new sets. For my card today, I am using the new Fairground Friends set. This set is so fun! It has a background/scene image plus lots of critters at the fairground, as well as fun sentiments. 

I started off my card by stamping the fairground image from the Clearly Besotted Fairground Friends Stamp Set on to a panel of white cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. I then made a mask for this from masking paper and placed it over the top. I also added a piece of memo tape below to mask off the bottom section of the card. 

Using blending brushes, I blended on Tim Holtz Distress Inks in Kitsch Flamingo, Picked Raspberry, Wilted Violet and Blueprint Sketch. Keeping the mask in place, but moving the memo tape so that it was above the images, I blended Black Soot Distress Ink below. The mask was removed and the images coloured with Copic Markers (the colours I used are listed below the supplies area). 

I took the sentiment from the set and stamped it below the image to the right hand side. I then stamped the bear with the balloon image from the set on to a separate piece of cardstock, coloured him in with Copics and fussy cut him out with scissors. The panel was adhered flat to an A2 white card base with tape runner. I then added the bear to the card with foam tape.

The balloon does cut out a lot of the background image, which is a shame, I think that bear is super cute, though!

  1. It's super pretty with the pink and purple sky! We had the same thoughts but mine is more neon!I love your layout and your colouring is amazing as always! The little bit of texture in the ground!! My balloon cut out a lot of my image too :-)

  2. Absolutely love this! You cut out a mask with those tiny fairground horses? Impressive! Well worth it as the blended sky is amazing and love the black soot ground. So clever! x

  3. Great colours - very cute - I'm gonna love this release - yet again!
