Project's for Clarity South West.

Two Project's using the holly stamp One a wreath using the large  Clarity Holly and Ivy stamp. Lots of masking and careful stamping You Need to stamp and cut out 2 masks .....There is a trick to this Draw a circle about 4 inches round in pencil on a white piece of theuva card. place one mask at the top going from the twelve o clock position on the circle Now as you look at the holly and ivy stamp the second holly leaf at the tip of the branch this is the one that needs to be placed directly onto the circle you will need to hover over the top of the mask as we dont want the branch to show ....this bit will be hidden by the mask the rest of the stamp once inked and stamped out will have a gap at the back were the branch should be.... carry on stamping and masking all the way round the circle. Do not remove the first mask, This makes is easier to judge where the last piece of the Holly and Ivy wreath goes. When you get to the last piece you will see a gap in the leaves insert the last image inbetween the leaves. This will complete the wreath. Colour in using promarkers and darken the edges with juniper ink using ink brushes  Stick on gems and Heat emboss in gold the Deck the halls stamp also by Clarity. I hope this makes sense if not and you fancy having a try at this PM me on Facebook and I will do my best to talk you through it.

The bottom project was a bit of fun a door hanger gilded with the Holly and ivy stamp set in silver and then painted in twinkling H2Os the Flakes were bought from Barbara Gray at Cowdon Claritystamp retreat.  The glue was I think was from cosmic shimmer???? but the label has come off so I would'nt swear to that. Anyway I hope you enjoyed our workshop makes I think our group did. xxx
