Clearly Besotted Teasers | Ahoy Matey

Hello there and welcome to day one of the Clearly Besotted July 2022 Teasers. The July 2022 release hits the shops on the 1st July 2022 at 8pm BST and from now until then, we will be sharing teasers with you using the new sets. My card today uses the new Pirate Pals set, which features adorable monkeys dressed up as pirates.

I started off my card by stamping the island image, as well as one of the monkeys from the Clearly Besotted Pirate Pals Stamp Set on to white cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. I coloured them using Copic Markers (the colours that I used are listed below the supplies area for reference) and then fussy cut them out with scissors. 

I took a panel of white cardstock and using Ink Blending Brushes, applied Tim Holtz Distress Inks for the ocean and sky. For the sky I used Squeezed Lemonade, Mustard Seed, Spiced Marmalade and Worn Lipstick. For the water, I used Prize Ribbon, Blueprint Sketch and Mermaid Lagoon. The panel was then adhered to a white 5.5" x 4" card base using thin foam tape. 

The island and monkey were then added on top, again with thin foam tape. I took the sentiments from the set and stamped them on to black cardstock with Versamark Ink. I applied white embossing powder and heat set. They were cut in to a strip and added to the card with more thin foam tape. To finish off, I added white gel pen highlights and dots.
