Clarity Challenge #9 CHRISTMAS

Well I had the most wonderful surprise this morning when the postman arrived with an unexpected letter!! It was from a very lovely Crafty Fairy and when I opened it there was a Clarity Rooftop mask, a stamp some very pretty flowers and a card she had made ...now I have admired this fairy's work in Blogland so I will really treasure that card.

Last week I saw a tutorial on Barbara Gray's new blog using this rooftop mask, and I put it on my Clarity wishlist  to buy at a later date, I kept thinking about it and what I could do with it .... so now that the fairy has made my wish come true here is the card

I have always found using masks a bit tricky but with my new Clarity stencil brushes it was a doddle, I used a mixture of Denim, Eggplant & Pitch Black Adirondack inks for the sky using a moon mask which I then swirled with a bit of Squeezed Lemon distress ink. I edged my rooftops and chimneys with a quicky glue pen and added some glitter as if they were catching the moonlight, added Santa and the star from the Christmas miniatures and I was done....

I enjoyed my playtime and so now I am off  to enter my card into the Clarity Challenge, who knows there is a £50 Clarity voucher for the winner ... imagine £50 worth of Clarity goodies .... where's that wishlist of mine !! lol xxxx Annie
