It's another beautiful sunny day, here in London and I hope you're all enjoying the sunshine, wherever you are. It feels so good after such a long winter to throw open the windows and finally let some warm air into the house. At the moment, I'm at the dining room table, papers spread all over it working on some new and exciting projects, music is playing and there's a cool breeze blowing through the room...I'm in my element. And it makes up for yesterday, when I spent two hours waiting for my appointment in a stuffy waiting room at my GP's. Oooh, I was so angry...plus, when it came to my turn, I was only in there 2 minutes just to be told I needed an iron supplement! Grrr...lol
Anyway, enough about me...here's day four of my Clarity shares...I hope you like them!
Once again with both of these cards, I wanted to try out some different shaped card blanks and I thought the twisted easel card worked really well on the images that I was using. There was such great detail in the image of the Dandelion fairy stamp that I wanted to keep it simple, to capture the look of a detailed etching but it also needed some colour and to inject that colour into the card, I added some matts of blue and green which really made the image, pop! The embossed background is achieved using one of Tim's embossing folders and some Centura pearl cardstock. I stamped the sentiment onto a die cut label, which I had coloured using my "Big and Juicy squidging method".
So, tomorrow will be the final share and I think I saved the best, in my opinion, until last!!
See you all tomorrow and hope you all enjoy the rest of the day!
For Lisa: To make my paper roses, I usually use either the Tattered Florals die from Tim Holtz or the Grungeflower die from Paperartsy and then run them through a die cutting machine. I then just build each layer up, shaping the petals as I go. I hope this helps and maybe, if I get some spare time...watch this space and I might see if I can do a tutorial!
