A new month and a new Clarity Challenge. This time it is called 'In the Garden' and the card above is my design. I decided not to go down the usual route of green grass and blue sky but chose to do a twilight garden. I have just received the Letterbox set, the tiles really make a feature of the letters, so they had to be used! My other new purchase is the morrocan mask which gave the impression of an ornate screen, I was inspired to have a feeling of looking out past the screen into the garden. I stamped the large topiary stamp and used gilding flakes, then cut around the right side of the plant. A Grande Nestabilities die was then tucked behind the topiary, cutting edge facing away from the stamping. This will leave an aperture with the stamp as part of the frame. The panel at the back was cut with the same size Nestabilities. I used three adirondack inks denim,stonewashed and eggplant to create the garden. The bird in the cage could be a nightingale, with a little imagination! To finish, the card was framed by running a promarker around each side, then matted and layered.
Thats all for now hope you like it, any comments are very welcome.
Thank you for looking!
