Clean and Simple

Happy Sunday folks

It's the first of the month - so a new challenge on the Claritystamp challenge blog and the theme this month is clean and simple 

Easy peasy lemon squeezy.

At the time I was doing this card I was also prepping for a demo day over at the Crafty Company in Fleetwood so I was a bit busy but I had been sent a set of the new sparkle pens so I had to use them ----well it would be rude not to.

Anyway to the card in question as usual I forgot to take pictures as I went along.

Firstly I masked off a strip across the card and covered all the rest up with copy paper.  Next I made a couple of spray mists wit the colour burst powders in pink and blue and sprayed the middle of the card and left it to dry.

Out with the stamps and and I do like these cute little guys and  just the right size to go across the card.  Firstly I stamped the flowers randomly, then the birds - I used archival so it would run with the sprays and the pens that are also waterbased.  I started to colour in with the speccie pencils - and remembered to take a piccie!!

More colouring ensued but I didn't want to put down lots of colour as that would mean that there would be a big build up of wax from the pencils and I didn't want it to act as a resist .

Finally I stamped Harmony and then went over the flowers and birds with some crystal clear sparkle pen.

I am a rubbish photographer but I hope you can see the glitter on these birds 

I have since had more of a play with them and I likey!!

Looking forward to seeing your entries in this challenge
