Clearly Besotted Teasers | Have a Great Day

Hello there and welcome to day three of the Clearly Besotted June 2021 Teasers. Release day is Saturday 5th June so not too long to wait now! For my card today, I am using the new Balloon Bunch Bugs set. If you are familiar with the other Balloon Bunch sets, these sets feature critters and balloons that you can combine to have the critters flying in the sky. I didn't use the balloons on my card today though. 

I started off my card by taking a panel of white cardstock and stamping the pond image from the Clearly Besotted Balloon Bunch Bugs Stamp Set in the middle towards the top. I coloured it using Copic Markers, adding dots for the sky and ground/grass. The colours that I used are listed below the supplies area. 

I took a separate piece of white cardstock and stamped the frog and bee images on to it with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. They were coloured with Copic Markers and fussy cut out with scissors. I took the sentiment from the Clearly Besotted A Little Sentimental Stamp Set and stamped it below the pond with more black ink.

I adhered the panel to an A2 white card base with tape runner and then added the frog and bee on top with foam tape. To finish off, I added white gel pen highlights to the images.
