Are you ready for another Clearly Besotted countdown?! I definitely am and today I am sharing a card with you featuring the Go Wild Again set. I fell in love with this set when it arrived – there are so many cute images and I tried to fit as many as I could onto my card, but there are a few more that can be added.
I had a lot of fun making this card as the images are a great size for colouring and you can create some very cute little scenes. I started off by stamping the images onto some Neenah Solar White 80lb cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black. I then set about colouring them with Copics (all colours are listed below). Once I had finished colouring, I added some shimmer to the waterhole and the little flowers, and some black glaze onto the animals eyes to give them a little shine and dimension. I then fussy cut them, but there are coordinating dies available. I ran my Memento Tuxedo Black marker around the edges of each die cut to give them a more finished look.
I prepared my background by masking off the bottom section of the panel with some tape and blending Mustard Seed and Dried Marigold Distress Inks to create a orange/yellow African sky background. I splattered some drops of water onto the ink and lifted it with a paper towel, just to provide a little bit of extra interest.
I moved the tape upwards and then created the earth by blending Antique Linen Distress Ink and Altenew Mocha ink. I stamped the greeting with Versafine Onyx Black ink.
I adhered the pool down with wet adhesive and popped the hippo, elephant and crocodile up with foam tape. The splashes, flowers and frog were all adhered with wet adhesive.
Lastly I created a frame to go around the panel by using a couple of rectangle dies. I attached that using wet adhesive and popped the whole thing onto an A2 top folding base card.
I hope that you enjoy the card for today. I will be back tomorrow with some more inspiration for you.
Thank you as always for stopping by, I appreciate your visit.
