Vintage Clarity Challenge

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 maskFleur de LysThe 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 :-)

Love

Rae
