"Things with Wings"
I had just purchased the filligraphy swallow set so thought that was as a great stamp set to try out for this challenge. Lots of different ideas for the background, but eventually chose to go with a stamped tile area for the birds and a fully stamped background using the filligraphy petals set. Lots of masking and Adirondack inking, with Stonewashed, Denim and some Bottle to get the shadows. the Bottle shows up more on my photograph than in reality. Used the "Harmony" stamp from a Clarity Word Chain stamp set as my theme.
My colours were influenced by the traditional blue and white china "Willow Pattern" which I felt the filligraphy birds reminded me of. I coloured the swallows with Spectrum Noir pens
I drew the edging to the tile, a la Barb recent demo on C&C, and coloured with distress markers, colours picked up on the two blue matt and layer edging to my card.
Do take a look at the Clarity Stamp Challenge blog so many great designs to get inspiration from, there is still time to enter if you are quick.
Thank you for visiting and reading about my card design.
