Clarity Stencil challenge Oct2015

The challenge this month had me digging through my Clarity stencils, and returning to my favourite one the chrysanthemum flower, I'm not sure if it is still available?  I dry embossed with a 2mm embossing tool then used cut n dry to highlight the embossed edges.  Placing the stencil back over the same flower, I used brushes to fill in the flower.  The splitting of the flower horizontally adds to the drama/impact.  Autumn leave in the same colours as the flower adds balance.  The use if with love sentiment provides versatility for the card us, and even allows it to be hung.

Gorjuss girl

I made this card from the Gorjuss range of stamps, this one is called the White Rabbit.  The colouring is an early use of the Spectrum Noir pencils, still a lot to learn!  I gave this too my Niece who has just started Uni, and the sentiment "Happy everything" seemed very appropriate!

HobbyArt Spitfire card

This card was made as a retirement card for someone leaving the aircraft company I work for.  The Logo on the main sentiment is our company logo, and was made using rubber off cuts from a stamp set.  The wood effect was a crafters companion embossing folder.  The clocks and sentiment are by PaperArtsy.
