Hope it’s a good one for you.

Last month we had an amazing number of entries to the Challenge blog, thanks to everyone who took part.

The Calender Challenge was super, and a great number of entries for the start of this Challenge too.

The 1st of the month, so that means a new Challenge at the Clarity Stamp Blog Challenge, this month’s theme is love.

Hope to see you taking part in either of both Challenges. Don’t forget to see all by tan mates creations at http://claritystampchallenge.blogspot.co.uk/

Take a 6 x 6 inch white card blank. Dust with an anti-static pad.

Using versamark stamp you image onto the centre of the card, cover with gold embossing powder and heat from underneath to get a smooth embossed image.

Place the outer part of the stencil over the image making sure to position exactly and tape in place using low tack masking tape. Stamp your little images with black archival.

I blended some of the red brick distress ink over the blending mat. Distress inks will bubble if you don’t blend them I then very gently sweeping from the sides brushed on the ink. Gently does it. Blend from the sided in to help give a fuller effect to the heart.

I next blended a little cloudy blue to the edges of the heart again to give some shadow again for that rounding effect. I then removed the stencil and very lightly used a soft pencil on the outer edges of the heart for shadow.

Finally I used the ornate corner in each corner, using the same gold embossing powder, and coloured in the letters with a black distress pen and the inner heart with the red brick distress pen.

If you have any questions just leave me a message, love if you would leave me a comment.

Bye for now.
