A little bit late this month with my challenge entry as those who know me will know I like to do a steam train theme for my Dad, but as I couldn't do anything like this using Clarity products for Father's Day I decided to get ahead and do the birthday card for my Partner's birthday next year. I started by embossing the bulrush stencil onto a piece of stencil card and then overlaid this with the tree stencil before colouring using the following Distress inks: Tea Dye; Vintage Photo; Ground Espresso; Old Paper; Shabby Shutters; Cracked Pistachio; Weathered Wood;and Salty Ocean

I decided to go down the Groovi route for the challenge this month and the finished project will also be the Birthday card for my Mum later this month. I used the Banner Groovi Border Plate and the following Groovi plates:

Well I have finally managed to get time to put my entry together for the Clarity Stamp Challenge. This month the theme was all about masking, so I decided to use the Blue Tit stamp and the Picture Framer Stencil. I stamped the large Blue Tit in Denim Adirondack and then masked the image before drawing round the inside of the Oval from the Picture Framer Stencil.

Well I have to admit I didn't know where to start with this challenge, but after Kim Shaw throwing down the gauntlet and looking at some of the other entries I decided to enter the card I have made to celebrate my Grandma's 94th birthday. I decided to make a card using the Groovi system and used multiple plates and borders in my design.

New year, new beginnings and a new challenge from Clarity. I started with a shaving foam background I had done on some watercolour card last year.
