Well here we go with another new challenge for Clarity! There were some fabulous entries last month, combined with the beautiful weather it really made it feel like summer seeing all the holiday designs - happy days.
Please pop over here to see who the winner was, I hope they enjoy spending their £50 prize on some Claritystamps stamps! We also pick a top 5 which is soooo difficult when everyone produces such lovely designs.
So back to this month's challenge which is animals. I don't have many animal stamps so my challenge was to manage to make a card with just 2 animal images LOL !
I used the black cat from Clarity's Birdhouse set, remember lesson 18? A lot of stamps in this set and really versatile with so many options. I added the butterfly from the Cat and The Butterfly stamp. The sentiment - thank you - was the latest issue from Claritystamp's NDC and I couldn't resist sitting the cat on the extension line of the stamp. For the background I just randomly stamped the small Leafy Swirl stamp.
I do love classic black and white and that is what I was aiming for, but that little bit of rebel in me just HAS to add a bit of colour ! The yellow daisy centre was matched to some of the matting which for me finished it off.
So maybe you will have a go this month and I hope I have shown you that even if you don't have many stamps to match the theme you can still create a suitable design. Please check out the rest of the design team's samples for more ideas - they are truly fabulous. Hope you have fun!
