In my Garden

I made this card today after thinking hard for ages, and trying out several ideas, about what to do for this month's Clarity Stamp challenge. 

I've used all Clarity stamps, some really old and some not so old, and a stencil I bought on Saturday at the Clarity open day in Leyburn.  Colours are Adirondack Mountain Rose, Squeezed Lemonade Distress ink and Picked Raspberry Distress ink, It looks more sunny in real life than in the photo. 

Birds, trees, flowers, dragon flies, caterpillars, squirrels and a lot more besides are what I find in my garden. 

Thanks for looking your comments will be very much appreciated.

New Home

Evening, thanks for taking a look at my latest blog post which is a card I made recently using Clarity stamps and stencils.

I created the background by brushing some pink, blue and yellow Distress inks across a the Clarity squares stencil directly onto a 6 x 6 white card blank. For the central image I stamped and coloured some of the wee houses onto a square piece of white card, hen masking off the houses to stamp the trees, bits of grass and fencing the matted onto a dark blue background.  The banner is also from Clarity.

Your comments will be greatly received thanks.

Another inky background made with water and clingfilm and sailboat blue and lettuce Aderondack inks this time.  The stamp is a Clarity club stamp and the foliage is from the Clarity set with the cats which I purchased recently.

Thanks for looking, your comments will be very welcome.
