Clarity stamp Challenge - Things with Wings
IHappy New Year everyone!!!
Well it's all change on the Claritystamp Challenge Blog Team, myself, Linda Page and Naomi Mahon are joined by a ne Design Team. I'm sure you'll join me in welcoming the newbies and also to say goodbye to the girls who have left us. We'll miss you.
Congratulations to the winner and Top 5 of the December Challenge - gorgeous entries yet again.
We're starting off 2015 with a new Xhallenge which is Things with Wings. I decided to use what is possibly my favourite stamp set of 2014, the Journalling set.
I started with a size 8 Manilla tag and blended scattered straw, dried marigold, mowed lawn and stormy sky distress inks into the tag. I then flicked it with water.
While it dried I used the same inks to colour the seam binding for the bow.
With Black Archival I stamped the branch, birds, script and harlequin stamps randomly around.
I then stamped the upper layer of the bird into heat resistant acetate and heat embossed with
Platinum Wow Embossing powder. I cut these out and attached them over the silhouette bird slightly off to leave a shadow.
I couldn't make up my mind whether or not to trim off the over hanging wing but I can do that later I'd I decide to. The words are chit chat stickers.
Thank you so much for all your support over 2014, all your comments are much appreciated.
