All in the words

Hi crafter's

I've been a bit lazy with my blog just recently, but I have done my entry for the Clarity stamp challenge which is all about the words. I started by stamping the woven silk lady then masking her off. I then placed the aperture stencil over the top. The inside space was then very simply coloured in with inks and masks to create the scene. The colours I used are stonewashed, denim, lettuce and peeled paint. I used the leafy trailer stamp to give the impression of plants growing on the hills. Once I was satisfied with the background I put the inner mask in place and smudged ink outwards to leave a very soft outline. It did leave a white line which highlights very nicely. Next I inked up the foliage stamp from the garden elements in weathered wood, then stamped in the left hand corner in second generation ink. Now ink up the garden plants stamp in weathered wood and stamp at the bottom in first generation ink. I coloured the lady in with promarkers then over the top with Spectrum Noir pencils to intensify the depth. To finish ink up the words in black ink and stamp to one side as shown. Lastly I run a grey promarker around the edge to frame, then mounted on to a white base card. That's all for this time, thanks for looking.

Happy crafting
