Clarity Challenge ... Stencils

Last night I passed an hour or so catching up in Blogland and happened to see that the latest Clarity Challenge was Stencils. I looked in my box of gelli prints and found a lovely delicate one I had made some time ago using a Clarity dove stencil, So I went to bed thinking what I might do with it, I didn't want to overwhelm the background as the stencil was the main element for this challenge. here is what I came up with:

It was a real walk down memory lane looking through my Clarity stamps  ... I used Fantasy Fibres to create my dove on the topper and I clear embossed the Peace stamp onto a piece of white card for the base mat and lightly brushed Adirondak Stonewash ink over it to make the stamped image Pop ... I love that technique .... the old ones are sometimes the best!!

Right I had better see if I can remember how to enter the challenge as I haven't done it for a few months and the deadline is looming just hours away. Happy Crafting xxx Annie
