Ring O' Roses - its Challenge Time.

Good morning everyone!!!

WOW WOW and again WOW!

What another fantastic response to last months Clarity Challenge!! There are so many super talented people out there! Congratulations to you all :-)

Well its the 1st again (although summer has still yet failed to download!!) so its time for a brand new challenge over at the Clarity BLOG 

This month its all about Mr and Mrs - all kinds of weddings and anniversaries. Time to dig out the old romantics in you :-) !! 

I used a whole host of stamps on this months card, the small rosecarriage as seen on tv,
 Health, Wealth, happiness and the medium and small lamp posts. I used the Splodgeaway Heart the lot mask to create a subtle background with the sentiment and then I created a frame by masking, repeat stamping and embossing in Wow bridal embossing powder. After cutting the frame out I water coloured the roses using Tumbled Glass distress stain. The main image is simple stamping using the different sized lamposts to create perspective. The die cut wedding bands are from Marieanne.

This design could be easily adapted to a Christmas or winter scene by switching the roses for snowflakes and the sentiment for a seasonal one

Well I hope this gives you some inspiration and good luck with this months Challenge!!
 I am off to put the kettle on and get ready for Clarity on the telly

Have a great weekend everyone

Crafty cheers for now

Love Rae
