Its all in the Words

Hello there, gosh its May and its been such a while since I have blogged. I better get catching up. But for this blog entry I'm going to show the card I have created for this months clarity challenge : Clairty Words Challenge - May

I did try to create a gelli plate card but I wasn't really happy with how it turned out: I painted in the Splodeaway stencil with different coloured acrylics, then I added some dots and lines to add some interest. I let i try and added Silver acrylic over it.

I think I was getting too complicated so..... I went back to basics and I created this Autumnal card. I love  Clarity Autumn Leaves
So I used these stamps with a number of distress inks pads: Mustard Seed, Rusty Hinge, Crushed Olive, Pine Needles and barn door. I edged the card in Rusty Hinge and then used Liquid pearls (pewter) in the scallops of the card
Then I stamped the sentiment and added a little bird from the Garden set.
Hope you like my card.
