Fishy Card – ClarityStamp Challenge–June 2015

Fishy 3


  • A5 white card blank,  A5 black card, A5 Textured mirror card plus small scraps of card for embellishments.
  • ClarityStamp Fish Stencil.
  • Acrylic texture paste – opaque white.
  • Acrylic metallic paints – red and green
  • White gel pen.
  • Peel offs and black metallic faux brads.
  • Piece vegetable bag netting, an earing hook and a scrap of monofilament thread.


1. Applied opaque texture paste to black card through stencil with a palette knife. Kept the image aside to use on another project.

Love this stencil!

2. Quickly flipped and placed the dirty side of the stencil down onto a fresh piece of card and pressed. Removed quickly (the paste does dry fast) and washed the stencil.

3. When the negative image was dry – replaced the clean stencil and brushed though with green and red metallic paints.

4. Highlighted the image with a white gel pen.

5. Finally mounted and embellished with fishing hook and reel, sentiment, a bit of net and die cut weeds to make the finished card – my fishing friend loved it.

  3. How clever to use the flip side of the ‘pasted’ stencil as the base to create your fishy scene; must remember that one! The detailing with the white gel pen certainly enhances a fantastic image. Wishing you success in this month’s Clarity Challenge. ;~}
