Welcome to my first blog of the New Year, not too bad as it's only the 6th!!!
Who has made their New Year's resolutions? If you have, what are they and have you broken them already or are they still going strong? Mine was to blog more on my personal blog. I know I run the Clarity blog, but that's not the same as showing you my artwork on here is it?
Well this year it's going to be different. Can you tell I'm crossing my fingers behind my back?
How many of you watched the Clarity shows yesterday (Sunday)? There were loads of sellouts! Were you one of the lucky ones who managed to buy one of the fab stamps from the show. If you missed it, there's a reminder for you on the Clarity blog.
The card below used one of the stamp sets shown on Create and Craft and highlights the flexibility of having an alphabet set within your stamp collection. You can create any name, verse or quote you want as simple as anything...
Stamp - letter box set
Stamp - large kissing couple
Stamp - small birds in flight
Stamp - cherry blossom
Adirondack ink - stonewashed & sunshine yellow
To get the reflection of the letters in the water you can either stamp the letter onto the blank letter square (provided in the set) and then stamp onto your card or alternatively stamp directly onto your splodgemat and press your card onto the splodgemat.
If you were using the coated Clarity card with the second method you would have to be careful not to move the card or the letters would smudge. I used the first option and hopefully the letters look as though they are floating with the ripples in the water.
xx Happy crafting and glittery hugs xx
