Clarity Stamp Challenge - Launch Day

Happy Friday crafters and I'm pleased to be able to tell you that the Clarity Stamp Challenge blog has launched it's first challenge today, yeah!

It's taken weeks, if not months, of planning and now you're able to join us and share our excitement too.  The theme for our first challenge is "ANYTHING GOES" so dust off your Clarity Stamps and pop along to the blog for some inspiration from the design team.  You could be the lucky winner of a £50 Clarity Stamp gift voucher.  Tempted now?

Here's my inspirational card using a new technique and a new product for me.  I had great fun with a my crafty friend Hazel playing with different ways of using Dylusions Inks and I think I've fallen in love all over again.

Materials used:
Stamp - "love" from the birds and flourishes set
Stamp - love you (NDC)
Adirondack ink - red pepper & denim
Dylusions ink - postbox red & London blue
Distress ink - worn lipstick
Card candi - regal silver
Ribbon saved from a box of chocolates

I'd like to enter my card into the following challenges:

Papertake Weekly - sketch #42
Craft Us Crazy - anything goes
Crafty Ribbons - anything goes with ribbon
Crafts and Me - dies/punches
Divas By Design - anything goes
Inky Impressions - splash of red
