Hello everyone welcome to my blog this months Clarity challenge is Christmas story I really enjoyed doing this piece my only trouble was got so carried away missed a few photos so please for give me so I will give you details of what I used to make this below
Clarity theother card
Collall glue
Promakers /post it notes
Clarity stencil brushes/ masking tape
Adirondack ink pads black/Raspberry /misty lake
Distress ink pads peeled paint / bundled sage /peacock feathers
Clarity stamps chain words / bells /Cabin / Pine trees / sprig stamp
Moon Mask  /  hill mask /bell stencil

 Lets get started go around the very edge of card with masking tape  I placed my bells first then cut out post it note mask this then place your bell stencil using masking tape
 put hill mask in place stamp the cabin over this so it shows the snow built up in front found if the reply the stamp straight to note let you get the image that you need to cut out so you don't need to struggle trying to get the hill cut out then reapply your hill mask so you can add your hills using Raspberry ink stencil brush lightly add colour then with make up sponge using feathered peacock lightly add around the mask and at the bottom then moving mask up repeat but doing slightly lighter as this will make your picture look like your hills are in the back ground  for the sky using Peacock feathers and stencil brush put your sky in take mask off run your brush lightly through the moon with make up sponge go around the edges of the stencil to darken the sky just add light dusting of the Raspberry stamp in black your trees

 draw through the stencil on post it notes so you have a mask to colour your scene so far clean and reapply stencil where you want the second bell stamp you chain words then with brushes and sponge apply your colour don't forget to colour in the bottom of the bells  using promarkers colour the cabin leave bit of the roof for the snow apply glitter with glue using peeled paint stamp in the sprigs then go around again with the bundled sage using a brush go around the out side of the card with misty lake till desired look then with fine point black promarker put decal line around to finish this  hope you enjoyed this card hope you have as much fun as I did
