Clarity Challenge 16 - Masculine

Hello lovely people,

Goodness me it's June already and time for another Clarity Challenge.  This month I have had the privilege to be guest designer and the theme is all about the men in our lives ... well Father's Day is looming in 15 days time.

Soon as I found out what the theme was I delved straight into my Clarity stash and knew straight away that it would be a garden theme.  I love Clarity's Garden Set.  Each stamp is so beautifully intricate.  

I also used Clarity Stamp's classroom birdhouse set and the new line sentiments.  The line sentiments are so useful.  I love how you can shape them, they are very versatile.

I cut the shed out of kraft card and coloured it in using promarkers. As you can see, the door closes. I brayered the background and used Clarity cloud mask - this is quite subtle as I am only just getting to grips with this technique.

I used white embossing powder on the fence. I should have made a mask but it was easier and quicker to just emboss over the shrub plants.  Finally coloured everything else in using promarkers.  I cut some of these shapes out using my Brother Scan'n'cut ... a very clever gadget for busy crafters like us. :)

Well that's all for now.  If you have time please leave a comment, I'd love to know what you think. Thank you for visiting and good luck everyone entering this months challenge.
