Hi Folks! Been a little busy since my last post. I have been making cards along with doing a little more art work in my friend Linda's house.
The first photo shows the Stamped and Stencilled corner.
As you can see my friend has a thing for butterflies, so I raided my craft stash and came up with this.
I have used a Clarity Stamp Butterfly and Cherry Blossom stamps, Kan Ban Rose Flourish stamp, 3 other Butterflies that I have picked up over the past year from a Car Boot Sale (don't know the makes).
I used part of a Rose stencil from a collection of Brass stencils that I have and I also used a large and small leaf flourish that I made using the Dies I featured in my post Thursday 18th July - More Embellishments in Metal.
I used Plum Archival Ink, Pearlescent Crimson Memento Ink and Twilight Brilliance Ink.
Very easy to do especially the stencilling using a foam pad.
The second photo shows the Stickers that I made to be placed on a door.
These were made from another Car Boot Sale purchase. They are patchwork and ideally suited for a little girls room. They measure about 1 1/2 x 1 1/2 inches.
I began by stamping in Black Archival ink onto various patterned paper from my craft stash. I then cut them out and then using Gel pens I coloured the hearts in Glittery Pink, the flower petals in pale satin pink, the dots in Orange and the paisley swirls in violet. I then co-ordinated the colours for the stripes in each letter.
I then pressed them on to my Versamark ink pad and then covered the letters with Clear Embossing Powder and then heat embossed. I repeated this process and then I did it once on the back of each letter. I then placed the letters on to a Styx to Double Sided Sheet and cut out.
Still got a bit more to do for my friend but having a bit of a break as I need to get on with some orders. Hope everyone who is a Clarity Stamp fan are enjoying the marathon with Barbara Gray on create and craft TV. Lovely cards from the Design Team and other ladies. Happy crafting all!
