Good Evening to you. It's been a bit of a miserable day here weather wise. But I have felt in a great mood so all is peachy! It's amazing what a holiday does!
Anyway I want to share with you my last sample that was made for the last Claritystamp show at the beginning of May.
It used the town stencil and grunge paste. I started off by cutting a piece of centura pearl card and attaching the stencil to it with masking tape. I then applied the grunge paste to it, carefully removed the stencil and then left it to dry. (Remember to wash your stencil straight away.)
Once the paste was dry I used my craft knife and drew some extra lines in the paste for bricks and slates and on the road part. I then put the stencil back on it to protect the white lines and sponged inks to the different parts of the picture. I trimmed the white border.
I chose bright colours for the houses....they remind me of the houses that you often see painted bright colours in seaside resorts.
I found a piece of backing paper with similar colours and with bunting on it. I used this to back my card and I also cut out some of the bunting to go on the card as an embellishment.
Here is the finished card
Anyway I hope you will join Barbara on Sunday morning 9 - 11am for the next instalment of Claritystamp genius!
