Hello again. Today I have a card that showcases Clarity stamps. As you can see below it started it's life as a brusho print.
There are days when I decide to play and see what happens. This was one of those days. I was playing with brushos on watercolour paper and wondered if I could produce something looking like a landscape. I know I used grey, moss green and ultramarine. I can't remember the other blue (
sorry). It resulted in this print. I also have a mirror image of this which is more probably suitable for seascape, but that's for another day.
Once it was dry i could stamp on it. I trimmed it back and stamped the log cabin in coffee archival ink first. I masked it and using a torn piece of copy paper and the tree, I stamped it in olive and fern green using 1st and 2nd generation ink. I heat set these and then stamped the stag in black archival and clear embossed. The star was embossed in crystal on black archival.
Then i added the shading in the snow using weathered wood distress ink, said torn paper and a make up sponge. Then i coloured in log cabin with spectrum noir pencils and added a bit of halo around star.
It was time to add the glitter to the snow and the cabin roof. The last thing I did was to add some touches of white gel pen to cabin. Then I inked around edges with faded jeans and chipped sapphire distress ink.
I mounted the topper on black and then used kraft card as my base card. I then stamped one of the banner greetings in black archival and clear embossed it. I inked it with distress inks and added depth with darker colours. I fussy cut it and shaped it with my fingers and laid it on card.
However the greeting is not stuck down. So tell me what do you prefer with or without greeting? Theresa xx
