Here we are again - it's Wednesday! It is a card sketch over at Let's Scrap this week, and I made my first ever card using Clarity Stamps. I have a box full of them and have puddled about with them, trying different brayering techniques, but this is the first complete card. I made the background paper by brayering at the top with orange ink and then at the bottom with blue. I then spritzed it with water and laid a sheet of cling film over it which I then scrunched up over the top of the card, and left to dry. When I took the cling film off later, there was a lovely marbled, mottled effect and I then stamped the music staff over it. I then stamped the centre piece and used foam pads to raise it up a wee bit. Finally I decorated with peel-offs and self-adhesive pearls (which were bought for a bargain in the $2 shop in New Zealand!!!)
I was asked to make a card by my friend for a 30th (Pearl) Wedding Anniversary. I decided to go for clean and simple and used die-cute of swirls and flowers, then decorated with pearls.
This card is my favourite one which I have made over the last week or so. It is a Kenny K image and I have used Bo Bunny papers, Nestabilities and a poinsettia die. I decided to veer away from traditional Christmas colours and chose my favourite colours of the moment, purple, turquoise and green. I chalked over the Nestability shape and the poinsettia so as it wasn't stark white.. I am entering this card on The Odd Girl "My best project of the week" and here is a link to the blog.
