Clearly Besotted Teasers | Thanks a Bunch

Hello there and welcome to day four of the Clearly Besotted June 2021 Teasers. Only one more sleep until you can get your hands on these adorable sets! For my card today, I am using the super cute Flower Friends set. If you follow me on Instagram, you would have already seen this little guy! He has lots of friends too as well as his adorable bee friends!

I started off my card by taking a panel of white cardstock and placing the MFT Rectangle Extraordinaire Stencil on top, keeping it in place with memo tape. Using blending brushes, I blended on Tim Holtz Distress Inks in Tumbled Glass and Mermaid Lagoon. Blending down to white at the bottom of the rectangle. I then splattered on Arteza Titanium White and Sky Blue Gouache on top before removing the stencil. 

Whilst the panel was drying, I stamped one of the hippos and the bees from the Clearly Besotted Flower Friends Stamp Set on to white cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. I coloured them with Copic Markers (the colours that I used are listed below the supplies area) and fussy cut them out with scissors. 

The sentiment from the set was stamped on to the panel and then the panel adhered flat to an A2 white card base with tape runner. The hippo and bees were added on top with foam tape. To finish off, I added Black Glaze pen to the hippo's eyes.
