Today i want to share with you a card I've made for the Clarity Flower Power Challenge - I wasn't aware of this challenge blog but as soon as I found it i knew i had to join in. I've combined the theme with the Sunday stamper dream challenge this week too. Here's my make:
I've used several Claritystamps to make this card - but let's start with the flower. This petal set was one from the Classroom series - I love it to pieces - I chose 4 different petal types and stamped them in versa mark and added a variety of wow powder colours before heat setting. Then I used mustard seed and spiced marmalade DI to colour the petals in before fussy cutting.
Next came the background - for which I used the good old gelli plate and some TH stencil letter to create the word dream - I even remembered to do the letters backwards to that it read right on the print!!!! I used a combination of red and yellow acrylic paints and also sequin waste to get the main print. I wanted to keep it quite zingy but relatively plain to allow the flowers to pop.
I used two more claritystamps to complete the background - the Blake verse and the word dream that came from another classroom set. Then I added the flowers and a button. I hope you like my creation - I certainly enjoyed making it! I just love these bright in your face colours - wonderful!
