Hello there! I hope you are all well. I can't believe that its 1st November already; the days and weeks pass so quickly. Are you up for a new Clarity challenge? Don't forget you'll be in with the chance of winning a £50 Clarity voucher to spend on crafty goodies. You've got to be in it to win it!!!
Here's my inspiration for this months theme. All stamping done in black archival. I stamped the Japanese lady into position first, and masked her off.
I taped the semi-circle stencil into place, and brushed through distress inks in the following colours, blending from top to bottom: abandoned coral, barn door and fired brick. It took a while to get this intensity of colour.
Then I stamped the waterlilies and sentiment along the bottom edge of the stencilled shape. I stamped the waterlilies again onto a scrap of card, coloured with spectrum noir pencils, and fussy cut. These were then stuck down flat over any red petals and leaves!!!
Finally, I gave my Japanese lady a beautiful pale complexion with spectrum noir pencils, and made her a dress using fusible fibre.
I hope you like the finished card. I love its simplicity and drama, and hope you will too. I look forward to seeing all your entries. Till next time. Xxx
