Clarity Challenge # 10

Clarity Stamp Challenge #10

I made this Birthday Calender to hang in the craftroom so as not to forget people's Birthdays ??? Will it work ...... who knows.

I used an mdf blank which I coated with white Gesso and left to dry.
Adirondacks used : Denim, Meadow, Peach Bellini and Pitch Black.
Archival Inkpads : Jet Black, Fern Green, Sepia and Watering Can for the Mountains.

The Clarity Stamps used were the NDC tree scape, Minatures from the farmyard set of Remountables including of course the tree which was used for the tufts of grass.

Clarity Challenge # 9 Christmas ....

Here is my entry for the Christmas Challenge it is too long to take a pic of so hence the circle ...

I used the wax technique that Barbara Gray used on her Pear Tree Candle, applying the wax to the mini canvases, stamping and embossing all the images on tissue paper, which were in turn coloured with a mix of promarkers and wink of stella brush pens. Then to apply finished images to the canvas I reheated the wax on the canvas and laid the images over the hot wax, the wax soaked the tissue and was complete. I trimmed the excess tissue using a craft knife and added ribbon the the back of the canvas for hanging.

Entry for Clarity Stamp Challenge 6

Clarity Stamp Challenge 6 - Animals

I have made this clock for the Clarity Stamp Challenge using a stamp I received from the Design Club one of the many stamps I have collected since being a member of the Club. The stamps are of the same excellent quality as those you purchase but I have to say the newsletter you receive is always interesting and can be thoroughly entertaining many have had me giggling that's for sure. Then with the stamp comes inspirational projects to give you an idea of things to use the stamp for.

I have used Pan Pastels and this is only their second outing with me. then I have also used an Archival Black inkpad for a really crisp image and a Black Promarker using the chisel end for the black outline around the edge. For the eyes I have used a blue gelli pen.
