Full of Eastern Promise...

Hello friends...

Today, I'm sharing the final of my Clarity DT samples and as always, I hope you love what I've made!!
When I saw the stencils and stamps that I used on this first card, straightaway, I thought ~ Asian and decided to try and capture that look for my card using the Gelli Plate to create my background. I stamped the Filigraphy frame onto a separate piece of inked card and embossed it with gold powder. Finally, I added a embellishment of UTEE which I stamped into using another of the stamps in the set.

The second card uses both of the Filigraphy Leaves in the stamp set and I wanted to make this one very elegant and also a complete contrast to the first card. So, for this card I kept it monochrome, cream and black always work perfectly and just heat embossed the images to give texture and an opulent feel.

Finally, the kingfisher stamp and again, when I saw this stamp little grey cells thought this needs a watery background but with a twist and as a huge admirer of Monet's beautiful Water Lilies, I decided that maybe I could create something along those lines. So, once again I used the Gelli Plate and  came up with this "Monet type" background and then matted the image of the kingfisher, which I coloured with Promarkers over the top.

So, I really hope you love what I've created and the thought process behind all of these cards...thank you so much for stopping by today and I'll look forward to reading all your comments!!

Have a great weekend and even though it's going to be a busy one for me, I know that come evening time I'll be glued to Saturday and Sunday night tv...can you believe it's the last of Downton Abbey?? *sigh* ~ time flies when you're having fun...
