This is my entry for the Clarity Stamp Challenge for Feb2015. The theme is "Floral" http://claritystampchallenge.blogspot.co.uk
Inspired by a Clarity Workshop, where stamps were used to provide the artistic technique Pointillism. First the lovely Clarity Poppy stamp was stamped in a sepia colour. Then it was a case of many, many dots of Promakers to build-up the shading.
The background was created by masking using Washi tape whilst randomly stamping the Clarity leaves, and using a brush to create the "airbrushed" background, tip, make sure you remove some of the stickiness, so that you don't take the card surface off! How do I know? ..... Notice the Clarity " Happy Birthday" strategically placed across the corner!
