This is my first Clarity challenge and I have based this card on 'The Dark of December' verse stamp from Clarity Stamps
|'I heard a bird sing...'|
For the aperture background, I used versamark and stamped the verse which I then burnished with Perfect Pearls - Perfect Pearl. Using a circle punch, I punched a stencil from a scrap piece of paper and again versamarked the moon which I also burnished with Perfect Pearl. I then took the Clarity Stamp Deerscape stamp and inked with versamark, then burnished with Red Lipstick mica powder (Stamps Away).
I used 3D foam tape to mount the Deerscape piece into the aperture.
I finished the card by adding a piece of white organza ribbon, topped with a red scalloped circle which I stamped with the Clarity Sentiment Stamp 'Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year' .
Finally, I used Pinflair Silver Pearl Wand around the aperture, Ranger Red Stickles on the snowflakes and edged the card with a metallic silver Promarker. I then mounted the finished piece onto a white base card from my stash.
I also made a piece to compliment the card which could be used as a tag.
This is a close up of the moon on the tag burnished with Perfect Pearls and highlights with a silver gel pen.
