New Clarity Stamp Challenge card

New Home card with clarity stamps

This month’s theme over on the Clarity Stamp Challenge blog is New Beginings so I made this New Home card.

New Home card with clarity stamps

I created a mask for the window both the shape of it and the inside cut out and a mask for the cat, all from post it notes. Using the Gelli plate I created a background, loading up the plate with a pale yellow first, then placing a dotty stencil on it and I put the mask of the window shape in place before pulling the first print. For the second print I loaded up with blue paint and stamped the swirls into it either side of where the window was going to be. Once I had my background I stamped out the cat, masked him off and stamped the window into the empty space, then masked off the window and stamped the trees. I realised then that the cat was levitating lol so I used some post it notes and made him a shelf to sit on. The window and frame are coloured with a mixture of Copic and Spectrum Noir pens and then I used clear embossing powder to “glaze” the windows. I cut the card down so it would fit the scalloped card with a matted border layer. I then stamped out the New Home tiles onto a spare piece of the Gelli plate background and stuck them on the card.
