It’s day three of the Clearly Besotted teasers today, and I thought I would switch from Halloween to space monsters. As you do. But these are not the monsters of the scary kind, there is a whole load of cuteness in this lovely set called Pop Up Monsters. And as the name would suggest, the images are designed to be able to be inserted into the spaceship so you can change out all the different monsters as you wish. And you also have included a moon image plus some little additional images for creating your space scene.
For today’s card I went very clean and simple.
The words “Beam Me Up Scotty” spring to mind as soon as look at this card, and whilst it’s not really Star Trek, the beams at the top of the card reminded me of that as they cast a lovely soft beam over the spaceship and it does give that illusion of being transported somewhere else. At least in my mind! I could have gone with a galaxy, but felt with all the vibrancy of the cards so far, you might need something softer on the eyes!
I first stamped the little monster, created a mask for him and then stamped the spaceship over the top so that he looks like he is sitting inside. This was coloured with Copics and fussy cut, along with a few little stars for decoration.
For the background, I took my Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Ink and blended it softly down the card to just under half way. I then put the Sunny Day stencil on top and blended again with Tumbled Glass to create the rays. I love the soft look that this tone on tone gives.
I popped the panel into my MISTI and stamped a greeting from the set using Versafine Onyx Black ink and then added the spaceship on with foam tape. The stars were adhered with wet adhesive. A very simple card but doesn’t he just look so cute peeking out?
I’ll be back with my final teaser for you tomorrow which you may need some sunglasses for! In the meantime, do pay Stephanie, Keren, Michelle and Joy a visit, they would love you to stop by. For those that aren’t familiar, the new release will go live on 1st September at 8pm BST at Clearly Besotted and Simon Says Stamp. Until tomorrow, happy crafting!
