Good Afternoon! Well I can't believe it's 1st April already! The year is just flying by!
And as ever with the new month comes a new Clarity Challenge. Last month we had loads of fabulous entries and it is getting harder and harder to pick out the best! I could have had a top 20! But well done to the winner and to the top 5 when they are announced.
This month you have to decide on a colour you would like to use and only use that! or tones of it! Along with any Clarity stamps of course.
I decided to use the Adirondack eggplant ink pad along with the bunnies set of stamps to create a card. So here it is!
I have been given an inkadinkado circle and cog and I thought I would have a play with that too for this card.
I started off on a piece of A4 paper to see how it worked out.
I then got a piece of A4 theuva card and marked the centre for the cog to go.
I stamped in first generation ink on every other notch then with second generation ink on the notches I had missed out. So my circle was complete.
I then stamped the bunnies in place and covered them with a mask so I could create the background. I added a moon mask above the bunnies heads. Using a makeup sponge and torn paper I added some ink so that the bunnies looked like they were in a field with hills behind. I was careful not to go into the grassy circle! I then trimmed the card to a square so that the circle was in the centre. I removed the masks of the moon and bunnies and brushed over the scene with one of the clarity brushes just to take the white off the bunnies and the moon. I tried to avoid their tails!
I stamped the grasses into each corner and brushed ink over the corners to add an air brushed effect to the edges of the card. I then matted and layered it on to dark purple card then a paler purple before mounting it onto an 8 x 8 card blank.
Hope you like my card but you must also take a look at the rest of the design teams projects. They have excelled themselves again! If you click on the link to the Challenge blog then onto their card it should take you to their blogs so you can see what a talented bunch they are.
Then its your turn...and don't forget there is a prize of £50 to be had to spend with Claritystamps.
