As soon as I saw the Clarity Stamps 4x4" Seedheads & Foliage stencil set on the Clarity web site, I knew I had to get it ordered. My order arrived this afternoon, so I obviously had to have a play session!
I decided to use the leaf stencil, positioned in the middle of a small piece of white card, measuring approximately three and a half inches square.
I used three shades of green Archival Inks through the stencil, starting with the lightest shade which was "Prickly Pear". Then on to "Leaf Green" and finally "Fern Green" around the outer edge of the leaf.
I removed the leaf stencil and then positioned the square aperture stencil that also came in the "Seedheads & Foliage" stencil set and drew around the inner edge of the square with a fine tip black pen to create a frame. I then added three dots to each edge of the inner square.
I mounted the white card on to a piece of Kraft card, then on to a white card blank.
Using Versafine Clair "Shady Lane" a mid green coloured ink, I stamped the sentiment which is also by Clarity and is part of their "A6 Thank You Occasions Sentiment Stamp Set". Finally, I added three dots of Ranger "Glossy Accents" to the leaf to replicate rain drops.
