Birthday Wishes

Hello everyone Wow cant believe we are in November time for another Clarity challenge this month its BLAST FROM THE PAST choose one of the past challenges I chose anything goes and decided to do a groovi for this project so I will list the materials first

Clarity A4 parchment
Clarity groovi system
both trumpet lilies plates /straight pricking plate
squares and circles plates / Clarity groovi  club plate
Faber castell polychrome colouring pencils
Artistry inks mellow green /distress inks mustard seed
Gems / pinflair glue gel /Clarity stencil brushes
Tumble dryer sheet

Lets get started

Rub over parchment with tumble dryer sheet In the four corners I added trumpets using the smallest tools

now filled the gaps with the long trumpets

put your squares in so that the trumpets dangle over the squares

from the main groovi system I added my Birthday wishes
with the circles I enter the one that fit tight into the square then added the next circle down same as I did for the squares now add the club plate gently going around the sentiment

Now with the square pricking plate do this from the front of your work but using number 2 tool instead of a pricking tool add your dots in all four corners

with the soft side of your board use number four tool add your white work remember don't press to hard soft is best and let it rest in-between before coming back doing it again so will come up whiter
then with the colour pencils colour in on the reverse side still

With mustard ink and brush stroke the parchment on the reverse 

 then with the meadow green do the out sides of the square well I hope  you enjoyed this work and gives you some ideas hope to see you back again soon


  1. Love all the intricate work. The sweep of muted colours around the frame sets your embossing off perfectly. ;~}
