Clearly Besotted Teasers | Fa La La Mingo

Hello there and happy Clearly Besotted release day to you! I have one last teaser to share with you this morning before I share everything about the release a little later. 

Today I am using the Fa La La Mingo set. This is such a fun set with lake/mountain image, lots of flamingos and fun sentiments too. 

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

I started off my card by stamping the background/landscape image from the Clearly Besotted Fa La La Mingo Stamp Set on to a panel of white cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. I then made a mask for it from masking paper, cut it out and placed it on top. 

Using ink blending brushes, I blended on Tim Holtz Distress Inks in Shaded Lilac and Wilted Violet to the sky. The mask was removed and the images coloured with Copic Markers (the colours that I used are listed below the supplies area for reference). 

It was adhered to a US A2 sized white card base with thin foam tape. I took the flamingo from the set and stamped it on to more white cardstock. I coloured it with Copic Markers and fussy cut it out with scissors. It was then adhered to the card with more thin foam tape. 

I stamped the sentiment from the set on to black cardstock with Versamark Ink. I applied white embossing powder and heat set. It was cut into a strip and added to the card. To finish off, I added white gel pen snow and Tonic White Blizzard Nuvo Drops to the berry on the flamingo's hat.
