Words and Feather Background Card.

Hi Folks!  The card I am showing today is a very simple one, 3 stamps and two colours. All stamps are from Clarity Stamp.  The ink that I have used is Archival - Fern Green and Adirondack - Slate.

I began by masking up the edges of Cream Satin Card with Low Tack Tape, stamping the Verse - May God Guard... using the Archival ink and then dusting with Clear Embossing Powder and heat sealing it.

I took my two Large Matrix and Small Matrix Feather Stamps and stamped them using the Adirondack ink, doing a bit of secondary stamping with the small one.  I used a Clarity Stencil Brush and the Archival ink to brush around the outside edges leaving the centre plain.

I just love the detail that is in these Feather stamps

My next step was to layer up my image.  I did this using the Perfect Layers Rulers from Joanna Sheen. I used a lovely trellis patterned paper with different shades of green in it.  I attached my image then cut out the layer to the size I wanted and then I attached these to an 8 x 8 inch White Card Blank.

The end result has a delicate look to it which I am happy with.  I will be entering this card into the Clarity Stamp Challenge...ends today typical me last minute, just as well this was a quick make!

Happy Crafting Everyone!!
