This is the last of my cards from September's Claritystamps shows on Create and Craft. It is using the Letter Box kit that is going to be used on Lesson 12 of In the Classroom with Barbara Gray on the 13th October.
I was very excited when this kit arrived and couldn't wait to get creating with it. As it looked like Scrabble tiles I thought I'd have a go at a Scrabble style card. I got out a pen and paper to try and come up with a nice board. After a couple of attempts I'd realised that Happy Anniversary worked well, then it was just a case of adding in a couple more words. Darling and Husband fitted and that led to the male, sporty theme. It's a good job it's not for my Husband, he can be a darling but he's not really into sport!
For the background I used just two colours of PanPastels, Phthalo Blue, and Diarylide Yellow. The stamps are all by Clarity and are inked with Versamark. I just kept adding stamps and layers of PanPastels until I got a look I was happy with.
The letter tiles are all mounted on foam pads to give it a bit of dimension.
I'm looking forward to the lesson and seeing what the rest of the Design Team have created. I've also made a couple more items that I will be blogging after the show. They are great stamps to work with.
