Clarity Stamps "Swallow Journaling" Red, White and Blue Challenge Card

Yesterday, Eileen Godwin set a "Red, White and Blue" challenge. I've only just had an opportunity to make a card and this is it. 

I used the Clarity Stamps "Stripes" stencil with "Carnation Red" Archival Ink.  I then lifted the stencil, shifting it one line up (to cover the red), then applied "Cobalt" Archival ink through the stencil to get the multi coloured stripe look.

I used two stamps from the Clarity "Swallow Journaling" stamp set, stamped in first and second generation Versafine Clair "Twilight" ink.

I added dots of red Posca Pen and Ranger "White Enamel Accents", giving a touch of colour to the bird using Derwent Inktense pencils.


  1. I love the red and blue stripes and the pretty foliage and the beautiful swallow in flight finishes it brilliantly Sam. x

  2. The background colours in the bottom corner remind me of the morning sky ,beautiful stamping and layout.
