ClarityStamp Challenge - Clean and Simple

Hello bloggers and welcome to this months blog, which is all about being clean and simple.


This is not something that comes easy to me, especially the clean part.  I always end up covered in whatever medium I am using.

This card came to me when I wasn't even thinking about it.  It just popped in, so I got on and did it straight away before I forgot.

Firstly I used various sizes of circle dies and cut out holes in a descending order.  Then got to work on the backing card.  I drew through the holes with a pencil so that I would have a bit of an idea where I was working.  Then used pink and blue distress ink to sweep across the area.



It looked a little too dark so I used a white inkpad and a scruffy brush and went across each area with this.  It gave a lovely whitewashed effect.

Next came the stamping, I always knew I wanted to use the boy stamp, but I needed more birds.  Luckily Clarity have lots of sets that have different sized birds which are really useful.

Once stamped, it was just a case of placing the holey piece on top and glueing.  I went round with the obligatory black marker to finish off.




   Eh Voila!

Thanks for reading, hope you feel inspired to give this a go.
