Clarity Stamps Anything Goes

First time using the Groovi Boards, and I love them! more info here

I used the Carp fish nest and just used the outlines, the bubbles used the circle from the Groovi Plate Mate and the Seaweed lines from Groovi border 1 & 2

Once I was happy with the outlines, I coloured with watercolours

The 6" x 6" Clarity Canvas was coloured with Distress Inks, using the Clarity Seaweed Stencil Darker on one side, the overall look was softened with a baby wipe

Peacock feathers
Broken China
Weathers wood
Pumice stone
Iced spruce
Faded jeans
Walnut stain
Rusty hinge

I tore the edges of the parchment and used a distressing tool and applied to the canvas with tape at the back, need to do a bit more experimenting before applying glue!
Jools : )
