Polar bears



Hello everyone this months Clarity challenge if MAN'S WORLD I choose the polar bears from the Clarity club to do this I like these but must admit my first time using them I will list what I used below
Clarity groovi starter kit
Clarity club frame but the Adapter can be used
Polar bears plate / Large circle and square plates / Square Deckle plate
Clarity boarder frame /Clarity pattern plate
Clarity Stencil brush
Clarity teal parchment/ brads
Distress ink pads Broken glass / faded jeans
Thick copy paper /Clarity stencil stars and circles
Clarity light box / pergamano embossing mat


Lets get started



use a tumble drier sheet over the parchment on the side that will be doing all your work from so your tools will glide easier with starter kit and circle plate I put in the outside ring missed a gap put in the next but at this point you could put all three circles in just something decided later to do

With smaller plate holder add your polar bears
Now going to say this with lettering we all make the mistake I have before now got my letter in wrong direction so I am always watching this now so much I put birthday in upside down So anyway I used the letter from the boarder holder then went to square plate and added angled lines to the writing

 
Top and bottom of the circles I used the square plate to do design then with the circle plate added the inner circles to the out sides of the big circle From the pattern plate add in your waves  
Now your white work I used the embossing mat, for this start with the larger tool don't press to hard this part takes time and patient its rest the work in between don't worry the white will come up we have all tried to do to much at time then it buckles so rest I decided between the circles I would add the dots do not with the tool just go around as you will get a dot in the middle that wont go white try going in a up down then a cross motion before going around if not sure always try out on a piece of scrap parchment  With the letters decided to whiten every other one The outer circles I added stippling to this still with embossing mat 1.5 tool very lightly taped the parchment but don't press to hard as you will go through this



With a piece of copy paper I went all over with large stencil brush and broken china my faded jeans pad has dried up a lot so was handy for this dabbed it all over till was happy now attach your stencil with a make up sponge and broken china add the stars and circles till I was happy when dry cut to size I needed attached the rested parchment with brads then glued this to navy card  hope you enjoyed this thank you for reading my blog hope I will see you again soon

Man's World


Hello everyone, cant believe we are in March already this months Clarity challenge is MAN'S WORLD. I chose the balloon stamps for this as I so love these I will put what I used below


Clarity stencil brushes

Clarity gelli plate/Kitchen roll/notelets
Clarity stamp mask
Clarity Man under tree stamp small
Distress ink pad vintage photo /Adirondack denim / pitch black

Brayer

Lets get started Stamp the large postage stamp at an angle in the middle of the card and cover with mask


Now with mask in place add the other two stamps and mask add sentiment to left hand corner I have got to apologise here as forgot to put in the photo about gelli plate I dabbed the vintage pad on gelli plate used the brayer to even colour all over now with screwed up kitchen roll dab lightly over gelli plate now place gelli plate over card turn it over rub the back so you get the image you desire I was happy first time so never repeated

Now mask off the stamp area with notelets so can work on the image  stamp the balloons and mask stamp man under tree
With stencil brush and denim put sky in now with stencil clouds just put slight colour with make up sponge to get your clouds I torn a notelet here to get mask for my hills using avocado ink pad and sponge put hills in

Now repeat with the smaller stamps

With masks back on I used vintage photo and sponge lightly pulling colourr from mask to card to give my shading but little at time can always add more but cant take off


Coloured my balloons with promakers still in love with these balloons chose not to put in black lines around the out side did not think needed it here hope you enjoyed my blog thank you for visiting hope I will see you again soon x

Happy Birthday



Hello everyone this is my take on this months Clarity challenge FLOWER POWER I decided to use Jaynes roses for this I have put a list of what I used below

Clarity groovi starter kit
Clarity boarder holder
Clarity banner plate
Clarity Square plate
Clarity boarder pricking pattern plate
Clarity ivory tones parchment
Parchment scissor
Brads / fine extra strong double sided tape
Clarity sticky tags / tumble drier sheet
Promarker spice /Pricking tool
Claritys black parchment board


Lets start On the darker side of the parchment use your tumble drier sheet so your tools glide
you do all you line work and whitening on this side And your colouring  You only pick holes and do your cutting from the front of your work  With the board you use the soft side for white work and piercing only  
So with the boarder unit add your banner plate And with the finer end of your tool add this in the middle of parchment  


With the starter kit and rose plate work out where you want the first rose
now turn your work around and do the same on the other side


Back to main boarder plate and pricking pattern boarder plate still on the reverse with the other side of the tool add the white dots when you have completed this turn over your board to the soft side and your parchment and prick in the holes in the centre of each dot still using your boarder plate

With your banner plate go back in on the reverse side and put your happy birthday in with the fine tool again

With your parchment scissors Have them flat going in to the two holes and twist slightly as you cut going around on this four holes till you have your cross

With a promarker I coloured on the reverse of the parchment the letters doing this on the hard side of board as you can see I have started my white work here with soft strokes with the largest ball tool remember not to press to hard little at a time and rest the work did the white work over a course of three days and must be done on soft side of board important to rest work other wise will buckle and their is no cure for this

Now I decided it needed something else so I put the square plate in and added the square just inside the boarder yes the area was to big but if you move the square plate around making sure you have it back in the grooves properly can make it a square, again still doing white work
I hope you enjoyed this Thank you for visiting my blag hope I see you back here again soon
