I started by masking off the edges of a piece of Clarity card which has a lovely shiny silk finish then I added a Clarity moon mask. A brayer isn't something I have used for inking for quite a while and works so well on this silk card so it had to be done! I used a couple of colours of Distress Inks then sprayed lightly with water and dabbed with kitchen roll for a bit of texture. I removed the mask and coloured the sun with Distress Ink. The stamping was done using the wonderful Clarity stamp set, Birdhouse Garden and black Archival Ink. The squirrel and little bird on the top (that bird came with my Clarity 'handmade by' set) were added after I removed the masking tape. I drew a double squiggly line around the edge of the inked picture to frame it. Ooh and nearly forgot, the fence was coloured with a Promarker. The panel was then adhered to a black base card.
This fabulous stamp set has so many elements it is really versatile, I love it!
