Fresh Blooms

P1040109 2


Hello and welcome to my blog.  Today I would like to share my entry for the Clarity Stamp Challenge ‘Anything but a card’.

I have had this double icon for ages and thought it would be ideal for the challenge.

I applied a basecoat of white gesso and stamped the Clarity Gentian and Columbine flowers with black ink. I coloured them in with a mix of promarkers and spectrum noir pencils. Masked off the flowers and used the Clarity stripes stencil with tumbled glass distress ink to create a background. I then lightly touched the edges with vintage photo distress ink. Finally I sprayed crafters Companion spray and shine over to protect the artwork.

Thank you for visiting my blog today – any comments would be appreciated.
