Hello everyone hope you are ok I'm not having a good month with my hands so this is my chosen piece for the Clarity challenge  MASCULINE details below with what I used to do this

Clarity theover card
Masking tape black promarker with fine tip
Claritys sentiment stamp / fob watch
Distress ink pads Rusty hinge/ brushed corduroy/ gathered twig /old paper /walnut stain
Clarity stencil brushes /kitchen roll

Lets get started

With walnut ink pad I stamped sentiment in the middle landscape style
 With the ink pads except rusty hinge stamp your fobs making sure clean stamp to stop contaminating in pads
With stencil brush go around card with rusty hinge when you have reached the effect you want screw up piece kitchen roll dab in the rusty ink try on copy paper first as you don't want it to dark if your ink pads is new and juicy  dab over the out sides of work avoiding the faces of the fobs till you are happy
Remove masking tape. With your fine point promarker do squiggly lines in the corners of the card
Hope you enjoyed this card thank you for visiting my blog hope I will see you again soon x

  3. Hi Julie, The complementary colours you have chosen fit in so well with the fob and sentiment echoing the suggestion of bygone days. Your masked border adds that special finish. ;~}
