Clarity challenge #2

Well Happy bank Holiday!!!
Rabbits, rabbits, rabbits. its that time of the month again!
The second clarity challenge is here!
We had such an amazing response to our first challenge - a great range of fantastic artwork. Congratulations to you all, I am so pleased you have all enjoyed it so much!
So here we go with this months challenge!!

This time we'd like to see what you can create with any of Clarity's flowers/trees/gardening stamps - the world is your oyster, or should that be the garden is your canvas!!
This Card uses the Poppies in Bloom, Grasses 1, Grasses 2 and the Letter box kit.

I fancied a softer take on the monochrome look.....more mindful of Spring and light nights. (ha ha one out of two isn't bad as the snow photo shows!!)  I went with my favourite colour purple and using an oval aperture made from copy paper (had to be freehand as unfortunately my dies were either too small or too large - typical!!!) I stamped a wee frame before stamping and colouring with Copics.
The sentiment is a quote by Henri Matisse, its one that regularly appears in my art journals. The book end card is an enlarged version from the new Hougie Book 3  
I hope this gives you just a little inspiration (Go on - leave a comment if so - or just say Hi lol!) but please do check out all the other fantastic ideas over at the Challenge Blog
(Just a reminder though please check THE RULES - there aren't millions but this challenge is ONLY for CLARITY STAMPS use of any other will render your entry ineligible)
We are really looking forward to seeing yet more of your great work this month.
Let your Garden Grow.....happy challenging' !!!
