1st attempt with my new Clarity Stamp

Second post today......

I am part of the Clarity Stamp's Club, and yesterday I received my monthly stamp. Just GORGEOUS!!!!! And as it is one of my best friends wedding anniversary today, I made a card for them.

I have stamped my birds with my "Archival Ink", jet Black and coloured them with my Le Plume II in the following shades : 68/22/62/70/41/67/66 and 30, as well as with my Spectrum Noir in 35 and EB2.

I hope you can see it well, but I made my own backround. I have stamped the birds with some clear ink, and embossed them with Clear embossing powder. I than used my Speedball and my splodge mat with some Marvy Blending Blox in "shades of Caribbean". I put the backround on a darker green piece of paper.

I cut my stamp with my Spellbinder, and 3D glued it on the backround.
For the sentiment, I have used my Letter box, and some Adirondack "Wild Plum" to match a bit the colours of the birds. For the letters, I use my Archival "Jet Black" again.
And the little "swirl" on the top, is just a piece of the green card I have used for the backround. It was not straight, so I cut a bit..... It swirls naturally, and I have decided to use it to finish the card.

I will enter my card in the following challenges :
Clarity Stamp Challenge : Mr & Mrs
Wags'n Whiskers stamps : Wedding/Anniversary/Love
