By the Seaside

Morning Everyone, Welcome along today. I am sharing a card I made for the launch of the Three Way Overlay stamps and mask set that Barbara launched on Hochanda on 2nd September. I do hope you got to see the shows over the Celebration weekend to mark 25 years of Clarity.

You will need:
Clarity Three Way Townhouse Overlay Stamps
Clarity Letterbox & Alphabet Stamp Collection
Versamark Black Ink Pad
Memento Summer Sky
White Stamping Card 6 x 6'' & 8 x 8''
Black Card
Indigo Blu Townhouse Teal Acrylic Paint
Indigo Blu Pantry White Acrylic Paint
Watercolour Pans
Brush and Water

Step 1: Stamp your Townhouse outline in black ink.

Step 2: Overlay the positive Townhouse stamp using the 'Summer Sky', I built the colour up as it's a fairly pale colour but layered it's a beautiful summery colour.

Step 3: Use a selection of watercolours to give the a seaside feel to your image.

Step 4: Create your background using the 8 x 8'' card, Use a Brayer to build up with the acrylic paints, the more layers the better for additional texture,set aside to dry.

Step 5: Arrange and stamp the letterboxes and fill with your chosen words. Layer this onto black card. Mount your background piece onto your base card. Then to finish the card add the topper you have created.

Thank you so much for joining me today, it's been great to have your company. I hope you have enjoyed the tutorial and the finished card. Hopefully you will stop by very soon to see what else I have to share with you. For now Take care and Happy Crafting.xxx
