Postage Stamp Village Card

I can't believe it's less than a week until the launch of the Clarity Stamp Challenge Blog. I've seen the rest of the Design Team's cards and they are beauties. Now I'm looking forward to seeing what everyone else comes up with.

This is another of my cards for Germany. I really enjoy using the Postage Stamps as you can do such a lot with them. 

This one uses them with the Remountable Village set.  When I first got the Postage Stamps I had to cut the masks by hand. This was rather fiddly and wasn't my favourite job. Then I got my Cameo and I now use that to cut them out. Just recently Clarity started selling their own masks for fiddly stamps. It's such a time saver; there is a lot of masking on a card like this.

I started off by cutting out the little apertures on some copier paper so that I could stamp through to create the scenes. As they are so small I tend to use sponges, rather than a brayer, to add the colour.

After the scenes were complete I masked off all of the stamps so that I could colour the background. 

The top left stamp is cut out and mounted on some 3D foam pads to add a bit of interest.

The postage stamp mat was bought from the Silhouette Store and cut on my Cameo.

Stamps Used

I'd best get back to work now; I'm busy making samples for next weekend's Clarity shows on Create and Craft. With that and the blog launch it should be a good few days for Clarity fans.
