Clearly Besotted Teasers | Band Together

Hello there and welcome to day three of the Clearly Besotted April 2022 Teasers. We are half way through now, release day is Friday 1st April 2022. Today I am using the new Band Together set, this set is perfect for any musicians in your life. It features characters playing instruments, lots of fun sentiments and also a background image of buildings.

I started off my card by stamping four of the characters from the Clearly Besotted Band Together Stamp Set on to a panel of white cardstock. I made masks for them all from masking paper and then also masked off the ground. Using ink blending bushes, I blended on Tim Holtz Distress Inks in Mermaid Lagoon, Wilted Violet and Dusty Concord

The ground mask was removed and placed to cover the sky. I then blended on a little Tim Holtz Black Soot Distress Ink for the ground. All of the masks were removed and then images coloured with Copic Markers (the colours that I used are listed below the supplies area with Copic Markers). 

I took the sentiment from the stamp set, as well as the musical notes and stamped them on to the panel with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. The panel was then adhered to a mini slimline (6.5" x 3.5") white card base with foam tape. I finished off by adding white gel pen highlights, glaze pen and black glaze pen to their eyes.

Did you notice my mistake? I stamped one of the music notes upside down! It was too late to correct it, so I left it. I am hoping that it is not too noticeable!

  1. I just adore that blue to purple fade and the shading is so good under each of the characters. The card is just beautiful! x

  2. Such a sweet card Michelle! I think this might be my favourite set this month. I love your line up, its so fun and the gorgeous ink blending behind is perfect. The whole scene fits really well on a mini slim line too. I wonder what they are playing 😅 xx
