Clearly Besotted Teasers | Sea You Soon

Hello there and welcome to day three of the Clearly Besotted July 2022 Teasers. Not long to go now, the release hits the shops on Friday, 1st July 2022 at 8pm BST. Today I have a card to share with you using two new sets - Deep Blue Corners and Balloon Bunch Sea. These sets were made to work separately but I thought I would combine them today to create an underwater scene. 

PLEASE NOTE: This post contains affiliate links. Please see below for my full disclosure.

I started off my card by stamping the corner image and starfish from the Clearly Besotted Deep Blue Corners Stamp Set on to white cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. I then stamped the octopus from the Clearly Besotted Balloon Bunch Sea Stamp Set, followed by the shell balloon (masking off the top of his head before stamping). They were coloured using Copic Markers (the colours that I used are listed below the supplies area for reference) and then fussy cut out with scissors. 

I took a panel of white cardstock and using ink blending brushes, I blended Tim Holtz Distress Inks on top. For the sand, I used Antique Linen and Gathered Twigs, for the ocean/sea, I used Mermaid Lagoon and Blueprint Sketch. I then took the Clearly Besotted Sunny Day Stencil and placed it upside down on my panel. I then blended on more of the blue ink to create some darker areas and therefore create light rays in the water. 

The panel was splattered with water and set aside to dry. Once dry, I stamped the sentiment from Balloon Bunch Sea on top and then adhered to a white 5.5." x 4" card base with thin foam tape. The images were then added on top with more foam tape. To finish off, I added a few dots to the sand for some texture and then highlights and dots to the images with a white gel pen.
