As the title of this post says, this card was a really rush job! I suddenly remembered that I hadn't entered the latest Clarity Challenge and I really wanted to so I literally threw this card together - I don't think it is really good enough but I want to join in so am posting it anyway!
I brayered ink (Distess - Mermaid Lagoon, Evergreen Bough and Abandoned Coral) on my 3 x 5 Gelli plate without even smoothing it out on a mat first which is why the background is quite spotty - this is the second print - the first was way too dark. Before I pulled the print I used the gorgeous Clarity Edelweiss stamp to pull off some of the ink. Then I over stamped the print with Black Versafine and embossed with clear powder. You can't really see where I pulled the ink behind unless you look closely but it is there. I like the way it is the opposite way round. I went round the edge with the Coral ink then added the sequins and then Glamour Dust glitter to the centre of the sequins and to the flowers. I had previously coloured the flowers with ink and Spectrum Noir Pencils. I just popped the piece on a black card blank to make it pop. I also just realised that the centre flower is floating! I did ground it with some green pencil but I took the photo before I did that, silly me! I really wish I had given myself more time to make a better card but at least I can enter.
The Clarity Stamp Challenge for this month is called 'Bingo'. There is a grid with different options to choose going across, up or down - each square has a different technique in. That is so badly explained - if you peek at the blog you will see what I mean! I went for flowers, stamp and glitter.
Thank you for visiting me, I really appreciate it! Sorry this is so rushed and probably makes no sense at all!
Take care. Christine xxx
