The Clarity challenge for this month is love and romance so I plucked up some more courage and decided to give it a go, nothing ventured nothing gained. I am building up my stash of Clarity stamps but don’t have that many but I have managed to come up with a simple card using stamps from a couple of sets I do have.
Clarity stamps: birds and greenery from the remountable birdhouse garden set
deer from the remountable winter wonderland set
greeting NDC love you
Ink pads: Adirondack Archival black
Dark green card
Heart shaped stencil
I started by making the background using the heart stencil, Adirondack meadow and stonewashed ink pads and the stencil brushes. It does not show up very well on the photograph but there is blue ink on the top part and green on the rest to outline the heart shape. I then used meadow to stamp the greenery around the heart and a bit along the bottom
I then used the Adirondack archival black ink to stamp the greeting in the middle of the heart and the pairs of birds on the greenery and in the sky.
To made the stopper for the easel card I dusted a strip of card with Adirondack stonewashed and meadow before stamping the stag and doe in archival black and the green edges with meadow.
Finally I matted the panels onto some very dark green card stock before mounting on the card blank. Job done.
Thanks for dropping in. Take care.
