Boys, Boys, Boys

Clarity's Challenge this month is Boys, Boys, Boys.

I used a Clarity stencil and two Distress Inks - Cracked Pistachio (January 2015) and Twisted Citron (May). These are two of the new monthly ones for this year.

I used one of the Wee Folk to stamp what I think looks like James Bond into the design.

I then took a micron pen and drew around the stencil and added a border. I then spent a while zentangling the shapes before using my Spectrum Noir pencils to enhance the colours. I didn't want to spoil what I had done with my writing so I used a black Spectrum Noir alcohol pen to change the colour of some peel off letters to add the words.

I then mounted my design onto black card and then onto an 8 x 8 green card.


  1. Love, love, love it! Stencil and stamp work so well together and I did have 007 thoughts when I first viewed the stamp! Wishing you success in this month's Clarity Challenge. ;~]

  2. I love how you have used this stencil and the zentangle. Good luck in the challenge and thank you for entering. Xx

  3. I love the zentangle that you've add with the stencil Jocelyn and the colours your used.
