Clarity Challenge

This months Challenge is to use the Wee Folk stamps, you will find a couple hiding in the foliage, look quick though or they will be gone!

I colour washed the background with the fabulous Pebeo Dyna irridesant paints which give a subtle metallic sheen

Then used grunge paste with Clarity Pine Needle & Japanese Reeds Stencil

Stamped with the following Clarity Stamps

Large & Small Humingbird
Large & small Dragonfly
Large and small Lupin
Tree branch
Bugs Stamp
MT Grasses
Wee Folk Fairies & Elves

I then covered with a black acrylic and wiped back and textured with a baby wipe
Then dry brushed the modelling paste with Copper
