Part of the reason I wanted to start my blog was to take part in crafty challenges andhere is my first entry for the Clarity Stamp Challenge.
The theme is 'Clean and Simple' and I thought the Groovi plate system was perfect for this.
First I used the letter squares and letters on the Groovi Plate Mate to write 'Merry Christmas'. As with stamping you always want to start with the thing you want in the foreground. I then added the holly boarder from the Deer Christmas Plate.
My white work is something I need to improve but I think parchment craft really needs it. I decided to use some white work to hightlight the corner of the letter boxes to make them look frosty. I am really pleased with how it turned out!
After adding a bit of colour using Spectrum Noir pencils I mounted the parchment on some blue sugar paper. Unfortunately most of my craft stuff is in boxes either ready to bemoved to Leeds or already in Leeds! I really need to find something a bit sturdier than sugar paper to mount this on before it gets shipped off to it's recipient. A good excuse for a trip to the craft shop I think!!
Wish me luck!
