This version, with the boy flying away, was the one I made as a Claritystamp sample. The Boy and Birds stamp fits perfectly in the Clarity Sun Arch stencil and I thought it would make a lovely scene.
I started off by creating the Gelli print using the Brick Wall stencil. I cut out a paper mask using the Sun Arch stencil and placed this on the Gelli plate before I took the print. This gave me a nice clean area to do the stamping on.
I kept the scene simple as I wanted the main focus to be on the boy. He is stamped in black Archival. The stamping on the wall was done in that too, only that was also embossed with clear powder.
I was so pleased with how it turned out that I decided to do another version for my friend Lucy's birthday yesterday. One of the things that brought us together in the first place was our love of our Yellow Labs, so I often make her a card with a Labrador on it.
The previous card inspired me to make this version. I thought that the little girl with the word love in her balloons was perfect to go with the Labrador. We are both a bit bigger but we do love our Labs!
To alter it a bit more I also used some different trees. Which version do you like best? I think you can probably guess which is my fave.
