This month's challenge is "Nature".
This is my project.
Beautiful Clarity butterflies..........
..........stamped onto 200gsm paper/card with their wings cut out.............
.............and framed in an Ikea Ribba box frame.
I started off by stamping the butterflies and verse onto the paper. I then coloured the butterflies in with my Spectrum Noir pencils, choosing colours to match the paper.
Then came the fun part - the cutting out! I used my trusty Fiskars FingerTip knife on a glass cutting mat and took my time. Luckily I managed this without chopping off any vital parts (butterfly or human).
I then folded up the butterflies' wings and matted it up so that the patterned paper showed through the from below.
The patterned paper has a bit of a vintage look to it and the white card looked a bit stark against it so I went over the white with Old Paper Distress Ink on a Clarity Stencil Brush to tone it down a bit.
Three sparkly brads finish it off.
There are so many beautiful nature themed Clarity stamps and stencils to chose from that I think that this is going to be a popular challenge. I look forward to seeing all of the entries. Have fun!
