Well we're halfway through the week and just over halfway through our Clearly Besotted sneaky peeks. The February release is available to purchase from 5th February (tomorrow!) at 10pm UK time. I hope that you're liking what you've seen so far – there's certainly more to come!
Today's card combines three of the new sets to create a card for a cheeky monkey! This cheeky chappy and the sentiment is from the set, Wild Thing. He's swinging in the trees created with leaves from Sketched Blooms with a present from Laugh Out Loud. I love how the these three different sets can work together. The googly eyes were a must. I couldn't resist. ;)
- The leaves were stamped with Distress Ink and then brushed with a wet paintbrush to spread the ink to achieve the watercolour effect.
- I pruned the leaves to fit them onto the card front like a jigsaw. Before adhering them, I sponged some Peeled Paint Distress Ink onto the surface to help them blend in a little.
- I originally stamped the present first, then masked it to stamp the monkey on top. This gives the appearance of him holding the present. However, I then later decided to paper-piece the present so there was no need to do this LOL!
Well that's enough monkey business from me today. Swing across to Stephanie's if you haven't already to check out some more
Thank you so much for swinging by here today – see you tomorrow for the final day of CB sneaky peeks!
