The Clearing Stamp and Stencils

So many of you have asked about the cards at the demo at the SECC and the NEC we thought we should post them for you so that you can see the beautiful effects you can achieve by using the Clearing Stamp and Stencil Set. http://imaginationcrafts.co.uk/shop/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=137_186&products_id=1616. This gorgeous card is done by using the Reindeer and Trees from the Stamp Set and stamping with a dark green distress ink onto some background paper. Using the accessory words and dotty snow stamps to white emboss the snow and stamp the words Silent Night in black archival ink. The next card was created by using Mica Powders over versamark for the background. Just swipe Versamark across the background and then brush over Mica powders to create and landscape background. Place the Clearing stencil over the background and then colour some white stencil paste with a bit of black stencil paint and spread over the stencil with a palette knife. Life off the stencil, wash clean immediately and leave to dry for 1/2 hour. If you want to add a bit of sparkle sprinkle on some black glitter while the paste is still wet but after you have removed the stencil.

Finally, our third option is done by using the Clearing Stencil, mixing up some more black stencilling paste, as above. This time put the stencil onto some smooth white glitter card and spread the black paste over the stencil. Remove stencil wash straight away - it really is as simple as that.
