Clearly Besotted: August Release Countdown Day 3

The cutest super heroes in town are flying in today! Introducing the Super Plushies from Clearly Besotted‘s August Release, coming August 1st. I love super hero sets! They are always so adorable and who doesn’t love a super hero?!

I love how Clearly Besotted create sets that are just meant to be a part of scene cards and everything used here was from this stamp set alone! I always start by coloring the images, so I stamped all the super heroes in a dark brown hybrid ink and colored them with copic markers, and then  used my ScanNCut 2 to cut out all my images.

I ink blended my background with Broken China, Worn Lipstick, and Hickory Smoke distress oxide inks. Then I heat embossed the city image from the stamp set in white towards the bottom of the panel. I wanted to give it a little more definition than just an outline, so I used some tombow markers and a water brush to fill in some color to the city, just enough for it to stand out but not too much.

I then used the Sunny Day Stencil to create some soft ink blended rays in the background with a soft gray pigment ink. Now the background is done, and I added in my superheroes with foam tape to the card. I finished the card off with very small iridescent stars that I glued to the background for a little extra star power, and once the glue is dry, the card is all done!

Be sure to stop on by the Clearly Besotted blog for lots of inspiration and details of the August Release you don’t want to miss! We’re just halfway through the countdown and I’ll be back tomorrow with more inspiration!
