For this month's Claritystamp challenge entry I decided to use the beautiful Garden Heart stamp. I stamped the heart in Black archival and embossed the line art. Then rather than colouring in the flowers, I coloured in the background with a red promarker.
Then I masked off a border, again stamping with black archival, but I didn't emboss this time. And yes, I missed a bit! Thank goodness I'll be covering that up in a minute. This time I coloured in the flowers with the red promarker, being careful not to make the archival ink bleed, and finished the edges with a black micron pen.
The finished card. I wanted to keep this very simple and dramatic, so I mounted the heart onto red and black card, and just added a few red gems. I hope you like it. Good luck to everyone with your challenge entries this month.
