Clarity Stamp Challenge - Monochrome
Wow time is whizzing by - we've changed the clocks, moved into springtime, a new month of April and a new Clarity Challenge,
We had so many smashing entries in the last Challenge - well done to our Winner and Top 5.
This month the theme is Monochrome. I spent a day at the NEC about 10 days ago where I met up with good friends Jo Rice, Theresa Pace and Jane Barber. We also spent quite a bit of time on the stand with the Clarity Team. I also had the pleasure of meeting Margaret Craner for the first time, Obviously there were new goodies on the Clarity stand which just had to come home with me! I got several new Clarity Stencils and decided it would be a good idea to use one for my inspiration for the Monochrome Challenge.
For this card I used linen effect card which I covered with silver metallic Panpastel. I then masked off a large part of the Stencil with masking tape as I only wanted to use a small part of the stencil, I used Black archival ink for the left hand side of the card and then moved the Stencil and used Diamond Sparkle Medium for the right hand side of the piece. I then stamped the Clarity sentiment again with black Archival ink. Layered then onto Clarity Glossy card to frame the piece before adding it to the base card.
Why not join us in the Challenge this month, you could be the lucky winner of a £50 Clarity Voucher.
As I used silver metallic Panpastel for the background of this card I'd like to enter it into the Panpastel Challenge - Metallics Inspirations.
