Well according to the countdown on my phone it is only 28 days til Christmas Day. Of course all my cards are written and presents wrapped. If you believe that you will believe anything, absolutely no way am I that organised this year. We have been very busy since our son and fiancee moved out into their own house. I had forgotten how much stuff I had moved around to make room for them. Anyway they are settled and now my thoughts are turning to all the other things I need to do.
One of my priorities is to get my card into the monthly Claritystamps challenge. This month we are given the chance to choose any of the past challenges as our theme. Blast from the Past. I have decided on October 2015 as it was a stencil challenge and meant that I could also create another Christmas card. One more off my list.
I chose the lovely bauble stencil and started by attaching it in a hinge fashion to a piece of stencil card.
I chose one of the new Artistry inks, Blushing Rose. and brushed all around the edges using a stencil brush. The ones from Clarity are fabulous.
Next I made a mask out of copy paper so that it just left the inside of the bauble exposed. Secured with a bit of tape.
I used the lovely new stamp from this month's stamp club. the holly deer,and stamped into the bauble using Sepia Archival ink.I also tore some paper to make a hill mask and added some hills around the deer using the Artistry ink.
Thank-you for visiting all that remains for me to do now is to get this entered into the challenge. Oh and perhaps catch up on some of my Christmas preparations. xxx
