Clarity Stamp October Calendar Challenge
I'm really pleased with how this has turned out even though I didn't have the right trees, I used the bare trees and the mantles. First time I've made up my own ink pad too. When it came to it I decided not to put the sun in as I was worried I'd spoil the effect due to the fact I haven't got a circle punch (would be handy and now on my list) and I hadn't got any decent shade of backing paper to match in. I was a bit disappointed with the orange edge, it would probably mix in better with a backing paper and I might do that at a later date as I've only stuck down with glue dots. I love the big tree without the leaves though and, as many of the trees around here are on their way there I thought it still appropriate! The writing was a bit of a worry and glad I followed Barbara's advice and used a pencil first. There was still plenty of rubbing out I can tell you. However, overall I love the colours and some of the perspective in this which was probably more lunch than judgement!
