Clarity Stamp - Challenge Two

Challenge two over at the new Clarity Stamp Challenge blog is "In The Garden" and here is my card for the challenge:

I created the background using my new gelli plate then stenciled the flowers over the top using black soot distress ink.  I cut the square using an xcut die and distressed it using olive green and pine needles.  I then stamped the lily of the valley in black versafine and coloured it using promarkers and used a white pen to highlight the flowers.  I stamped the lily round the edge of the square in the olive green distress ink and then edged it with black soot.
I mounted the background onto black card and tied the black organza ribbon around the card before mounting the lily square using foam pads.

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. I have, so far, resisted the Gelli plate but you make me think I 'need' one now! This card is stunning Claire, the background is wonderful with the stencilling and that image of the lily of the valley is just beautiful. A gorgeous card! Hugs, Anne x

  2. Thank you Claire for entering your lovely card I to the Clarity Challenge. I don't have a Gelliplate yet but I think it must be done!
    Good luck.

  4. Well done Claire. Just received that stamp on Friday, must play. Lovely card. Thanks for entering the challenge, hope you will enter them all. Best of luck.
