What a Difference A colour Change Makes

 Clarity Crafts current design of the week celebrating 30 years of Clarity this year is The Happy Couple which Barbara Gray designed for her wedding invitations.  It is available as a stamp set, stencil, die and Groovi plate.  Here you can see that it is not only useful for weddings.  With a change of colour I found it suitable for a sympathy card too.

Here I used soft colours of lilacs and pinks and over stamped using the Word Sticker stamps.Here I went with muted colours and turned it into a sympathy card.

Attach the Happy Couple stencil to a piece of 7" x 7" stencil card using masking tape to create a hinge at the top. Brush Tumbled Glass Distress ink through the stencil.

Use the cloud mask underneath the stencil and Black Shadow Artistry ink add dark clouds.  Move the mask down the page until the background is covered.
Add the Thinking of You Art Nouveau sentiment in Onyx Black Versafine ink.
Add the couple's initials into the heart using a black micron pen.
Trim back the panel and mat onto black card leaving a narrow border. 
Add to a second piece of 7" x 7" stencil card.
Mat the stencil card onto black card, trim back and add to a card blank measuring 8" x 8".
