Winter Wonderland


As the nights are closing in and getting darker, we start to think about switching the central heating on (if it's not on already) and this gives us a reminder that winter is around the corner.  But there's no need to start looking for your top coats, scarf and gloves yet as I'm just talking about this months Clarity Stamp challenge where the theme for October is:

(using Clarity stamps only)

We'd love you to join in with our challenge where the winner is chosen at random and receives a £50 voucher to spend on Clarity goodies.  So come on over and join in the fun!

Here's my inspiration for the challenge:


I don't normally explain how my cards are made, but several of the DT have already asked about the panel on the left so I thought I would let you all know how it was done.

I took a piece of black card and covered it with versamark then randomly applied perfect pearls before adding UTEE (ultra thick embossing enamel), then heated.  I repeated another 2 layers of the versamark and UTEE and then in the final layer I stamped the snowflake whilst it was still hot and applied perfect pearls to complete.

The squares on the right were produced using versamark and perfect pearls misting around the edges with distress ink.

Materials:

Perfect pearls:
Distress ink - antique linen
Twine



xx Happy crafting and glittery hugs xx
