It seems ages since I was here last...where does the time go? Hope you're all having a great weekend and that the sun is shining. Of course, today is the first Sunday of the month and that means that Barbara has been on Create and Craft showing all the new (and old) Clarity Stamps that she has to offer. I'm sure some of you have watched but for those that didn't, as always...I'll be showing all my samples that I made for the shows, here on my blog throughout the week.
And this is the first of my samples, featuring the "Peace On Earth" set of stamps, which I believe are still available to buy.
I didn't actually see this card amongst the samples today, which was a shame because I worked so hard on it, cutting out all those little pieces and colouring each section bit by bit. But that's the nice thing about being able to share these samples with you...you get to see what others didn't! lol
The actual image itself was coloured using Promarkers and I built up each section to make a decoupaged star, adding Glossy Accents to give a raised, glazed look to the final image. I added some of those beautiful flourishes, that I keep talking about and just love, love, love...from Spellbinders (can you tell how much I love them? lol) and some stars, that I die cut using one of the dies from the Spellbinders Snowflake set. All this work was added to a piece of card that I embossed using a Tim Holtz embossing folder and as the final touch, I stamped the Peace On Earth message, using a Versamark ink pad and embossed with gold embossing powder. I hope you like it....
Well, I'm off to see what I can find in the freezer for tonight's dinner. I think it will be a good, old fashioned Sunday roast.
I'll be back tomorrow with the second of my shares from the shows and can't wait for you all to see them!
See you soon and thank you to everyone who left a comment on my last post...I've passed all your well wishes onto my Dad, who now thinks he's famous in the craft world ~ hehe...and he thanks you all!!
