Welcome to May and the new Clarity Stamp Challenge 27 which is "Clocks"........So here we go with my take on this month's theme.
It took a while for this to all come together, but I hope you like it and find it inspirational!
A Gelli-plate clean up using the Flower Power Stencil (inks used were Tim Holtz Mustard Seed re-inker in a spritz bottle and Clover Cosmic Shimmer Vintage Ink Spray Mist)
Re-mountable numbers & Woodpress letter kits
Medium & small Lamp post clear stamps
Lone Cypress Framer Stencil
Any Clarity framer stamp with an "O" in it (I used "Joy" for this project)
Cyclist from the Re-mountable Sport Set
Archival Black, Butterscotch Adirondack, Tim Holtz Peacock Feathers & Victorian Velvet
Talc & Clear embossing powder
Fresco Finish "Zesty Zing" acrylic paint, brayer & blending mat
Clarity Stencil Brushes
Contrasting Spectrum Noir Colouring Pencils
Black Sharpie Pen
Pro-marker Grey shade 4
First stamp the 12 & 6 top & bottom of the flower, then the 3 & 9 for the quarter hours, then equally space out the rest of the numbers around the daisy.
Place the Lone Cypress Framer Stencil over the flower and using a Clarity brush and Mustard Seed distress ink, use circular movements around the edge to highlight. Remove the stencil and mark the middle of your clock to position the hands, (or in this case, the lamp posts!)
Stamp the lamp posts using a Post-it to ensure the base doesn't extend further than the centre.
Dust the card with talc then ink up the Joy (or any other) Framer, mask off the spare letters and stamp just the "O" under the clock and emboss with clear powder.
Now stamp and emboss the rest of the word
Bring on the Blending Mat, Brayer & Zesty Zing Fresco Paint - brayer lightly around the edges. Stamp the rest of the words and your racer, embossing as you go.
