Amber's competition card

I had to show you this, its Amber's entry for the Happy Stampers under 16's competition today on the Wirral. The theme is black and white-and when i say black and white thats exactly what i mean,no grey,no metal,no skin tones,no mirri board.
Anyway, Amber started by making a aperture mask with the film strip stamp then stamped her film strips onto card. Then she stamped all her little Clarity stamps through the aperture into the windows. She has added clear glitter and pearls.
Normally she would have her inky sponge and brayer out and add a nice sky and some shading but the graduation into grey shades would get her disqualified from the competition!!!!
I will list the stamps used after i check with Amber,some are her Clarity project club stamps and some are over the counter Clarity's,im not sure which.

Quick update, unfortunately Amber didnt win this time (she was competing against 16 year olds and she is only 8)-there is always next time though!
