An Arty Swing...

Good evening all, hope you are well and having a decent week...half way through now.....I actually got my Clarity samples into the post today...phew...just hope they arrive o.k. It is always a worry!
Today, I want to share an Arty take on the new Duo Stencils from Clarity....I'm really becoming hooked on sorry crafters, but we are going to be going stencil mad ....I can feel it in my water......

This is the finished project, I do hope that you like it.

It started off as a piece of Theuva card and using the outer part of the A5 Duo Swing Stencil and some Black Adirondack ink I began to sponge some colour onto the work. I then added some sequin waste and more black ink.

Changing next to use the inner part of the stencil and a sun outer mask I created the sun using Spiced Marmalade Distress ink.  Once again using the sequin waste also then covering the sun over. 

Next using the 7x7 Lone Tree Stencil, Clarity Stencil brush and Adirondack inks, Lettuce and Meadow plus sequin waste the land was created.

The cloud mask and cloudy blue Adirondack ink, sequin waste and the sky was achieved.

All the stencils and masks were then removed.

Some matting and layering and design finished....there are so many different ways of using this stencil....I would love to see what you come up with....
To find these stencils and many, many  more...go to the Clarity Web Site...
Just a reminder before I go, Barbara is on our tv this Sunday with some fabulous new stencils and stamps....C&C Sunday.....9-11am and 2-3pm.
O.k. That's all from me for today.
Enjoy your evening and be kind to each other....
Hugs, Jo. X
