CD Plaque

 Evening crafty bloggers, this evening I have a little flower plaque that I have made out of an old CD. I painted the edges with copper acrylic paint and when it was dry I just sponged a smidge of black Gesso over the top. The flowers have been created using a Chocolate Baroque flower stamp that I pressed into Sculpey light clay. I dusted them with Perfect Pearls before setting in the oven.
The sentiment was another Chocolate Baroque stamp which I really like and strikes a chord with me. I embossed this in black and dabbed a copper rub on over the surface of the clay flowers and butterfly. I finished the flowers and butterfly off by painting the edges with black Gesso.
The little stand has been die cut from a piece of green card.
Thanks for looking.

Clarity Stamp Challenge - New Beginings

Happy New Year bloggers and to kick off this year's posts I have a Clarity Challenge card. This month's Clarity challenge is titled New Beginings, self explanatory, but as only Clarity stamps can be used I have to make  the stamps I have fit the theme, so after a think I decided with a tree in full blossom as the main focal point. I used the bare tree as the background and then added the blossom using various shades of pink ink and highlited with white.
Thanks for looking.
