Well good morning to you! I thought I would blog again...just to keep you on your toes and shock you....I don't usually blog everyday but hey! Surprise!
Anyway these two cards I made for the last Clarity Show....just loved the owls and the stencil in this set. The owls would make a great anniversary card or engagement....now there's a thought. I must congratulate my lovely friend and teamie Amanda Branston on her engagement to Mark over Christmas...so happy for her and can't wait for the wedding!
Any way I digress!
The first card I wanted to do was something a bit out of the box and that was use different colours then would be expected with the owls.
I got out four bright colours of adirondack inks; butterscotch, meadow, denim and red pepper, and stamped the owls in each as close to each other as possible but turning the card each time so they faced a different way. I trimmed the card and then added a free hand squiggly line which I then coloured in with the same four colours. I then matted it onto a piece of black then onto an 8 x 8 card blank.
For the next card I got the Gelli Plate out and using the stencil created a background. I then cut a piece of card slightly bigger than the aperture of the stencil and stamped the owls in Black archival ink. I added colour using spectrum noir pencils and then covered the whole tile with clear embossing powder. I attached this to the background with red liner tape.
Then it was matted and layered onto a piece of black card then an 8 x 8 card blank....a very nice stamp and stencil.... thank you Clarity!
Right I am off....the tree and decorations are coming down in a bit and the house is being cleaned!
Have a good day whatever you are doing.
