Good Morning All!!
I hope you are enjoying a lovely lazy Sunday morning??
Well I guess summer is over? 1st of September and kids are back at school this week. (bound to have a heatwave again now!)I will be off to enroll on my college Art and Spanish Courses this week and am even thinking about doing a GCSE in Psychology......we will see if the brain still works!!!
Meanwhile over in the world of Clarity, 1st September means a brand new challenge over at the Claritystamp Challenge BLOG
Thank you so much for all the FABBY entries last month - they were awesome! Well done producing such fantastic work everyone!
Tying to choose my favourites proved a real challenge!!
So this month it's ....VINTAGE......
I love vintage style but don't Get to play nearly often enough!! I wanted to keep this Pretty though and took inspiration from the Fabulously talented Emma Williams I am always in awe of the way she uses colour in such a striking way.
This project started life as a tag that had been lying on my desk for ages that had mopped up ink in the past. I then built up the layers with the masking, stamping and embossing before adding the texture with torn. The main image is embossed and water coloured.
The background is stamped in a faux watercolour style simply ink up your image with Distress Ink and then lightly spritz with water before stamping. It adds a lovely softness to your images.
On this project I used the following products the Trellis mask, Fleur de Lys, The Leafy Swirls and The Sketched Lady
So it's time to get your thinking cap on!!!

Good Luck - can't wait to see what you all come up with!!
Crafty Cheers for now :-)
