Hello everyone we are now on the second part of the Clarity challe4nge FANCY CUTTING come join me I will explain how I made this card

What I used
Clarity groovi system / The texture plate
Clarity club groovi club system /elephant plate
Spellbinders fancy circle die
Clarity giraffe stencil
 Faber castell Polychrome colour pencils / gems
Artistry Lime kiss collection
Clarity parchment
Water colour paper /Purple pearlescent paper /pinflair glue gel
Clarity black groovi board
Calibur machine / water spray bottle  /Thin extra strong double sided tape
Parchment tools

Lets get started

I put the circle die through the calber machine with parchment then using the reverse  side of the circle rub with tumble dryer sheet Now using the small groovi club system put the Elephants in the circle
I change to large groovi system added the sun and hills added a wider area for the water

Now with texture plate I added the ripples in the water
 Using the soft side of my black  board I used ball tools to whiten the feet  and the hills

 turn board back to hard side  use  colour pencils to colour in the  scene when I finished turned board back to soft using ball tools did a bit of whitening middle ears forehead trunk feet again
With caliber machine and die run the pearlescent paper though  now where you are going to place gems glue the two together using just enough so don't show through then add little bit to add gems put this to one side to dry properly
Now with you water colour paper using Avocado fancy rascal lime kiss put the ink pads lightly over the paper then spray with water give it a little bit time to start to mingle together then put copy paper to absorb the worst of the  water over don't let it dry to much put your stencil over use with stencil brush the lime kiss and avocado ink till happy  now start ripping your sides till got how you would like then the edges add bit of colour roasted chestnut morning dew   then spray a little water not to tmuch don't want to flood it   let it dry

Now back to large groovi system using the squares and letters do your sentiment emboss with tool on reverse side the colour in using you two point tool prick around the edges Now stick background to card use pinflair glue to add circle then use small piece extra thin double side  strong tape to back of sentiment apply to card

Summer time

Hello everyone, This months Clarity challenge FANCY CUTTING so many uses for this one but this is what I have come up with hope you enjoy this.
This is what I used
Maroon card
Clarity theother card / Gelli card
Clarity stencil Giraffe
Clarity new Africa stamps /Africa wee stamps /Clarity letter stamps
Clarity club stamp summer
Artistry ink lime kiss collection /Distress ink pad Walnut stain
Promarkers /pinflair glue gel / Clarity stencil brushes
Spellbinders boarder strip /calibur /copie paper
Scoring board /Masking tape / double sided tape

Lets get started

Stamp Giraffes using Walnut ink pad Cut square around this piece card apply masking tape around the edges
With morning dew I used the brush added colour till was happy I then tore copy paper to do the hills using avocado making sure that the hills at the back get lighter to get perspective

Take masking tape off using promarkers colour this in and do squiggle line around the out side using fine point promarker in dark brown

Backed this on to piece maroon card

This was my first attempt of running a ink filled stencil through my machine I used Walnut stain using copy paper not to spread ink every where in machine did not come out as dark as wanted but its more distressed might work

With stencil brushes I used orange popsicle Terracotta and roasted chestnut did thius till happy with coverage
Then with Clarity the other card and spell binder die run this through machine worked out with my background where needed to add score lines in the corners I cut squares out so could fit this piece work to the backing card

I set to work adding Time and the wee stamps using morning due added the sky at the top of sky added a bit of aqua fusion to make this appear darker Ripped copy paper for the hills make not to dark as these are in the distance and stamp wild grasses using lime kiss avocado and Wedgewood green

Stamped summer on to theother card using my cutter cut the edges into points coloured this with promarkers used a dark brown promaker chisel end went round the edges to the backing card first I applied to the  strip using double sided tape then the summer I used lumps of pinflair glue gel then added last the giraffes backed it all when dry on the my maroon card hope you enjoyed this as much as I did making this hope you will join me again soon
