Meet the Artist – Melanie

Meet the Artist – Melanie

Hi everyone.
Monday already! I have no idea where the weekend went, 
busy doing nothing sure does go quickly.
It has been all systems go at Clarity Towers today.
The 30/30 Sunshine Sale has proven to be very popular and kept the Clarity Crew very busy.
Today’s Meet the Artist is
Melanie Turner.
A name, I am sure you will be very familiar with.
Melanie is a very talented artist and designs many of our products: stamps, stencils and Groovi

So lets have a look at how Mel has created her card:

Take a piece of 7″ x 7″ stencil card and attach the 
Wild Seed Head stencil by creating a hinge at the top using low tack tape.
Take a selection of the Artistry Ink Pads and apply colour through the stencil using the Spot On Sponges.

Top tip when applying the colour, load up the Spot On Sponge and then dab, dab, dab onto a scrap of paper. Then gently dab, dab, dab through the stencil.

By doing this, you can control the colour being applied.

Lift up the stencil to make sure that you are happy with the result. If you want to apply more colour, you can lower the stencil back in place and continue.

When you have finished, remove the stencil and trim back your work.
Mount onto a black piece of card or paper and then onto a card blank.

Sooooooooo, what shall I add to the 20% Blog Offer?

How about the 5 different stencils Melanie designed,
available individually or as a complete bundle!

Don’t forget that the 30/30 Sunshine Sale ends at midnight tonight!

Happy Crafting!

  4. Hi Paul,
    Brilliant offers again and have to say, like Lynne, I seem to have missed these stencils too. They are fabulous and I feel they are going to drop into my Clarity basket! The team are doing a fabulous job of picking and packing – I put in an order yesterday afternoon and received an email today to say it had been dispatched already – wow! That's service for you! Thank you all.
    Melanie, this is a fabulous card. I absolutely love this stencil ( well the whole bundle really!) and it will definitely be winging its way here soon. The colours you have chosen are beautiful too. Simply gorgeous!
    Love and hugs Alison xxx
