Clearly Besotted Teasers | I Love Big Books

Hello there and welcome to day three of the Clearly Besotted May 2023 Release Teasers. Release day is Monday, 1st May 2023, so not long to wait now! Continuing with the book theme, my card today uses the Clever Corners set. This set has two corner images in it but as you can see, I modified one to make it a non-corner image!

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

I started off by stamping the image from the Clearly Besotted Clever Corners Stamp Set on to white cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. Since the image is larger, before stamping I masked off the images to the left. It only meets the books in two places, so was not difficult to mask with a bit of post-it tape. The image was coloured using Copic Markers (the colours that I used are listed below the supplies area for reference). 

I then fussy cut the image out using scissors. I took a panel of white cardstock and added Altenew Dotted Washi Tape to it, before trimming off the edges. The panel was adhered to a US A2 sized black card base with thin foam tape. I then adhered the image on top with more thin foam tape. 

I stamped the sentiment from the set on to black cardstock using Versamark Ink. I applied white embossing powder and heat set. It was cut into a strip and then adhered to the card. To finish off, I added Nuvo Crystal Glaze to the owl's beak and also to some areas on the books.
