New Beginnings - Clarity January Challenge

Each day is a new beginning - so my theme is TODAY!


The frame is 8x8'' and the pieces each 2x2'' (all mountboard). I have used Peacock Feathers and Dusty Concord distress inks for the background and the the little pieces. The stamping is a mixture of tissue stamping and directly onto the mountboard; although I am not sure you can really tell the difference except the tissue stamps are slightly less crisp - I just wanted them to have subtle differences.
I have used Clarity large butterfly, Today stamps, the gorgeous trees and elements from the Birdhouse kit.
The embellishments are from a butterfly die using acetate (with alcohol inks on it) and a flower die ( inked card and added glossy accents, held together with a brad). All dies borrowed as I don't own any yet!

Thanks for looking
