Clarity Poppies

This is my entry for the Clarity Stamp Challenge for Feb2015.  The theme is "Floral"

Inspired by a Clarity Workshop, where stamps were used to provide the artistic technique Pointillism.  First the lovely Clarity Poppy stamp was stamped in a sepia colour.  Then it was a case of many, many dots of  Promakers to build-up the shading.  

The background was created by masking using Washi tape whilst randomly stamping the Clarity leaves, and using a brush to create the "airbrushed" background, tip, make sure you remove some of the stickiness, so that you don't take the card surface off!   How do I know?   ..... Notice the Clarity " Happy Birthday" strategically placed across the corner!
