Claritystamp Challenge April, 2013. Notelets.

The title for the April Challenge is In the Garden. I love the Flower Box stamps for their lovely Spring look and they fit perfectly into the Leafy Bough frame.

I made the background using Panpastels - already having stamped the frame and flowers I masked these with Post it notes (they took some cutting out!).

After colouring these in with Promarkers I stamped the Just a Note message at the bottom.
These were then matted and layered onto Bazzill Bling in blue and green.

I then made a complementing box to pop the Notelets into.

I look forward to seeing your entries into the April Claritystamp Challenge blog - Good Luck.

Tag using Splodgeaway mat and mask

This tag is unusual for me and was inspired by Hels Sheridan.

I used my Splodgeaway mat for the blending and used the flower mask to add Maimeri paste. The flower mask was then used for the flower and leaves which were cut out and coloured.

Clarity Design Team First Challenge

Welcome to our fantastic new Clarity Challenge Blog.

Please join us and enjoy the crafty company.

I decided to use the Mardi Gras mask in my first piece of inspiration as its one of my favourite Clarity stamps (and I do have quite a few!!).

As the theme is Anything Goes it seemed the perfect time to use it.

I made the background paper with the small mask by stamping it with Versamark and covering with different colours of Panpastels.

For the main image I stamped this with Versamark too but this time embossed it with black embossing powder. I then coloured in with Panpastels again and mounted it onto Clarity black glossy card, a few gems provided the finishing touch.

I made it into an easel card as this seemed to compliment the stamp.

Hope you join us in this FIRST Clarity Challenge Blog.

Look forward to seeing your creations.
