Clarity & Cardio - Take 2

Here's the second of my Clarity stencil/Cardio stamps cards.

This one was done using  the Clarity Abstract Squares 2 stencil, along with a selection of Adirondack brown inkpads, and brushes to apply.

These are the inkpads I used, along with the brushes. The smaller brush was used with the Espresso ink to add some shading, which was further enhanced by going around the stencil with a latex make up sponge at the end.

Change of subject as well for this card- it's all about the birds. I'll list the stamp sets used at the end again.

I'd used Smokey Gray to stamp the tree & birdhouse, then switched to Onyx Black for most of the other images, apart from the Squirrel. He's done in Vintage Sepia. All Versafine inkpads.

Some foliage was added in Olympia Green,and a wire drawn in fine pen to hang the feeder from the branch. Then it was trimmed and matted onto brown, then black cardstock. All mounted onto a 7"x7" card base, with some eyelash wool wrapped around the spine.
Final touch was to stamp Happy Birthday, done in Vintage Sepia, and using one of the new Visible Image ' Go To Words set 1'.
 I think the colours lend itself nicely to a masculine card, and perfect for any bird watchers you may know!

Well....you've really set me off with these stencil'scapes'.
I was at the crafting live in Doncaster last weekend, and got a couple of Hobbyart stamp sets - which I think will work well with this idea, so.... thanks for the inspiration!
