Above The Clouds...

"The Sun Always Shines Above The Clouds" ~ Paul F Davis 

Hello everyone and a big welcome to all my new followers ~ I'm really glad you've all found me in blogland and I can't wait to get to know you!!

Hope you've all had a fantastic weekend and for those of you who might be affected by the dramatic weather conditions that are happening all over the world, I hope you're safe and my thoughts are with you!! 

Today, is a very quick post as I've just finished my CHA samples and now, I'm in the middle of taking all the Christmas decorations down before 12th night but just wanted to pop on to say hi and to share one of my Clarity Stamp samples from the sell out shows that were on Create and Craft at the weekend!! As always, I hope you like what I created...
For this card, I wanted to create a masculine, vintage look to compliment the balloon and so, I used Distress Inks on the background, some water flicks and if you look really closely, you will also see a Tim Holtz Layering Stencil going on!!!
The balloon itself is stamped three times in brown ink and decoupaged to give that layered effect. I added some Liquid Pearls to accent the balloon and stamped the message onto the background.


So, that's it from me for today and I'm off to finish "Operation Christmas Decorations"....my, oh my, the house looks bare!!
See you soon and thanks for popping by today...stay safe and take care!
Love Emma xxx

  10. Fabulous card Emma love the background you've created.
    Didn't get to see much of yesterday's show as was taking daughter back to Uni, did think it would be on the C&C app but it's not there - probably because it was a sell out show
