Hi I love the pocket stamp I sat down with it did not have any ideas for this card it just came to me sometimes I think you get some of your best cards this way how did I do it

 Started with stamping words in the middle then with post it notes made mask for this and pockets
 With your Gelli plate started with pink lipstick ink putting a layer on to your card then going back in with peacock feathers and then dabbing with kitchen roll this adds lovely texture

 Stamp in your words then flowers choose your promarkers colour in building your colours up less is more can apply more but cant take away hope you enjoyed this Thank You

So loved this stencil this month. With Clarity's other card Decided to put it through die machine trouble was when it came out noticed a crease in the  card so I new once added ink that it would show up more so was a choice start again or crease more. Went around the out side with variety of distress inks from walnut to tea dye vintage photo spiced marmalade forest green letting the creases gather more colour.  Cut a mask with copy paper using the outer stencil. Using sponge and mini distress ink pad giving it dark depth to the middle. applied the stamps and with white pilot pen added few dots. then backed it onto Maroon card   

Love this stencil decided you could do so much with it stencilled the rope.
 With a piece of copy paper pencil through the holes then cut the middle out so use this as your mask I used sponge and brushes to  work in the middle. Then used  promarker to colour in and do a boarder around I liked this affect

Things with Wings - Clarity Challenge

WOW I still can't believe I've been asked to be a designer for the Clarity Challenge, I feel it's the best thing ever and I'm looking forward to the challenge.

I've always been a bit arty, after leaving school I went into hairdressing but soon realised that my passion was still art so started making cards.  I didn't start stamping until recently after watching Barbara on Create and Craft and now I love it.

Here's my inspiration for this months challenge "Things with Wings".

xx Happy crafting xx
