The Clarity Challenge for May is all about words. I have been a bit boring and used 'Happy Birthday' - not the most inspiring words but the most used of any I would think!
The background is Spiced Marmalade, Squeezed Lemonade and Mustard Seed Distress Inks which have been dragged on my craft sheet, spritzed with water then the card swooshed through it. I then dropped handfuls of water on it, dried it then dabbed it in the remaining ink. The words are stamped using the Clarity Letter Box kit with Black Versafine and embossed with clear powder. I then masked the letters off with Clarity masks and dragged Spiced Marmalade Ink outwards from the masks to frame the letters. Then stamped the animals and birds from the Clarity English Garden Elements, again with Versafine embossed with clear powder - I embossed these silhouette images from behind so the shine was really smooth. A bit of layering finished it off on the black card base then I added the black pearls. If you get the chance, please pop over to Clarity and see the fabulous DT projects and all the brilliant entries. Thank you so much for visiting me. I will pop over and see you as soon as I can. I really appreciate your visits and support! Take care. Christine xx
