AUGUST  really? already?

 Oh my word where is this year going?  I cannot believe its time for a new challenge on the Claritystamp Challenge blog.  

Last month was anything goes and wow did we have some fabulous entries again.  You guys are just amazing it is always so hard to pick just 5 for the top 5 - all I can say is I am glad we don't have to single out just one and its left to the random picker!!  
Is this the month you are going to give it a go? £50 voucher for the winner - what's to lose?

This months theme is feminine.

Now for some time I have been trying to get prints off my gelli plate but have struggled to get what I want - but patience is a virtue and practice practice practice practice and FINALLY I got some prints that were what I wanted YAY

So I just had to use one for this months challenge.


I used the abstract squares stencil  for this print and I used buff titanium, a blue, there is also a hint of some pink  and black acrylics.

I used the gingko stencil from last months new design stencil club and denim and black ink to add background around the print.  I have quite a lot of the miniature stamps and decided to use velvet lady, kasha and a shoe as they fit nicely in the boxes and I coloured these in with spectrum noir pencils.  the other two little stamps I have had for years - some of you may remember that many moons ago Barbara always had a box of little unmounted stamps whenever she attended a show and both of these were the results of rummaging lol however they can be found in the atc section the floral urn is here  I can't find the miniature version of the Lotus but here's a link to the full size one

I coloured some sweet lilac flowers - so easy with the Claritystamp brushes - with denim and raspberry.  I gave the same treatment to some white lace and cut a flourish from a die.
