Clarity New Design Club lookback – ‘Be The Change’ #75

Welcome to my crafty blog. I’m back today with the second installment of my lookback through the Claritystamp New Design Club stamps from when I first joined. Today’s card is made with the ‘Be The Change’ sentiment that was the club stamp for edition #75, back in January 2013. I have actually used this a few times over the years – it’s a really good sentiment if someone is starting a new job or heading off on new adventures.

I did previously blog it back in October last year – here’s the link and a quick pic if you haven’t seen it: Be the change you want to see in the world

Anyway, back to today’s card. I decided to use the sentiment with the lovely ‘butterfly tree’ tree from Clarity, as it really picks up the sense of change and transformation. I started by masking off a panel on a piece of white card that I’d cut down to fit on a 5×7 card blank. I then blended Distress Oxides across it (blueprint sketch and mustard seed) using a brush. Again, blending the inks into each other for an ombre effect gives a feeling of change.

I then stamped the ‘butterfly tree’ in black Archival in, followed by the sentiment so that I could position it to flow out from the tree.

All I then needed to do was attach the topper to the card blank, and it was finished. I took the inspiration for the layout from this week’s sketch over at CAS colours and sketches challenge, so will be sharing it there.

  1. This is beautiful Deborah – not just the sentiment, but a great technique for a one layer card. Beautifully CAS! Thanks for joining us at CAS Colours and Sketches this week!
