Clearly Besotted | March Teaser Day 4 (+ Giveaway)

Hello, friends! Thank you for stopping by today for my fourth post as guest designer for Clearly Besotted. Be sure to follow them on Instagram, Facebook, and their Blog. This month, their teasers started on Sunday, February 25 so my posts will be a day behind, but I know you’ll still have plenty to be inspired by! Don’t forget about my posts for day 1, day 2, and day 3. The more comments you leave, the better your chances of winning the gift certificate.

All products will be available for purchase later today on Thursday, March 1 at 8 pm UK time (3 pm EST) 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.


Today, I created a card with Pirates at Play. SO CUTE. I thought my Copic markers would be best for the scene I had in mind. I stamped some of the images using Hero Arts Intense Black ink and then colored with Copic markers. I tend to forget how many markers I end up using for one card…so it’s hard to keep track of all the colors. I use Sandy Allnock’s awesome Hex Chart for best color blending combinations. I kept the card fairly clean and simple otherwise.




Aren’t they so cute?


You can find more inspiration on the following blogs, where the design team is sharing their fabulous projects throughout the week (some of them have their own giveaways!):

    The little girl pirate is adorable and I love how you colored the parrot, super cute! I like that the parrot could be used for non-pirate cards too.
