Clarity Stamp September challenge – Nature

Its Clarity Stamp challenge no 19 and this month the theme is nature.

If you like to find out more or would like to have a go yourself (there is a very generous £50 voucher up for grabs too) here is the link to the Clarity Stamp Challenge Blog.

Earlier this month we were at the Clarity open day at Catterick where a good day was had by al l(well definitely by our little group) and I came away with lots of ideas and inspiration.

So this months Challenge has been very much inspired by the fantastic demos from the Clarity Design Team especially Jo Rice and Sam Crowe’s using grunge paste.

I started with a shaving foam background from a recent session

IMAG1149Sorry not the best of pictures as the light is disappearing fast.

Next it was a Clarity stencil, grunge paste –  (2 layers) and painted with Perfect Pearls – thanks Jo.

Oops  and nearly forgot some stamping !

Apologies, its a bit rushed but the lights now gone and I need to get the dinner on.

    Fantastic Julie, great idea of building up the layers with the GP, must try that x

  6. Can’t take credit for this, GP layering was a technique I picked up from Barbara Gray’s blog a while ago.
