Clearly Besotted | March Teaser Day 1 (+ Giveaway)

Hello, friends! Thank you for stopping by today. I am sooo excited to be a guest designer again for Clearly Besotted. I LOVE Jenny and Stephanie and their amazing products. They come up with the cutest designs, and their coloring is out of this world! Be sure to follow them on Instagram, Facebook, and their Blog. This month, their teasers started on Sunday, February 25 and I’m a little late to the party. I hope you don’t mind.

All products will be available for purchase on Thursday, March 1 so hopefully you’ll be a little patient – this month’s release is to die for! Such adorable-ness! They will be available for purchase at the Clearly Besotted Shop as well as Simon Says Stamp.


For today’s project, I used Fairy Tale Fairy! What an adorable set! I started by stamping the fairy, wand, and crown with Hero Arts Intense Black ink pad and colored them with Copic markers. I fussy cut them and set them aside. For the base, I used Canson watercolor paper and my Mijello Mission Gold watercolors to create a dreamy background in various shades of blue, blue-green, purple, pink, and black. In between layers, I added some salt for texture and used my heat gun to dry before adding more shading. Once it was completely dry (and the salt removed), I added splatters of white and gold high flow acrylics. When that dried, I stamped the sentiment with VersaMark ink and heat embossed in gold. I taped the background to my white cardbase and mounted the fairy with her crown and wand with foam tape. I finished it off by adding Nuvo Aqua Shimmer Glitter Gloss to the crown and wand and Nuvo Sparkle Dust in Snow Glow to her wings. I love how it turned out, and I totally think you need to get this set when it releases this week!
