Another softer looking card, this time using stamps and stencils from Clartiy Stamps.
I started this card by laying the Clarity "Leafy Swirl" stencil over the top of a piece of white card, securing it with low tack tape.
This stencil is quite tricky to use as there is a lot of empty space between the design and the actual swirls are very thin, so I had to be extra careful when applying the Ranger Archival Ink (Pink Peony and Forget-Me-Not) through the stencil with a blending brush. In fact I found I got a better result by just resting the brush bristles on the surface rather than moving the brush around too much.
Once I was happy with the coverage, I inked the edge of the card using Versafine Clair "Warm Breeze" ink then stamped the foliage swirls using the Clarity "Leafy Swirl" stamp set. I used the same ink to stamp the anniversary sentiment, using the Clarity A6 "Anniversary Occasions Sentiment" stamp set.
Finally, I added a little extra detail to the leaves with a white gel pen and added dots of Ranger Enamel Accents to the end of some of the larger stamped swirls.
