Clarity Stamps New Beginnings Challenge

A new crafty journey started this January; I am taking the Kathy Byrne Mini Album monthly class at the Craft barn throughout this year, learning how to make Mini albums and books

I was eager to produce another wallet book that I'd learnt on the first class and thought using the Clarity Dandelion Fairy stamps fitted with the new beginnings challenge perfectly

I cut and scored the base of the wallet book from a 12’’ x 12’’ charcoal grey Bazzill Basics card.

To decorate, I used the Clarity Seaweed Stencil & Seaweed Frame
And used Mister Huey Manila & Taxi mist, Dylusions white and a spray made with DecoArt Black Shimmer Metallic Lustre, which creates a lovely steel grey metallic shimmer

The papers were then cut to size to decorate, stamped with the Dandelion Fairy and Leaf stamps. Labels made for the pockets and stamped with the dandelion Verse, using Adirondack Mushroom and Black Soot

The edges were distressed with Black Soot and mounted onto the base card with Cosmic shimmer Glue
