Tara's Corset

Oh dear, I've really been a bad blogger haven't I?  At least I have been on my blog, but I've been busy elsewhere getting ready for the launch of the Clarity Stamp Challenge on the 1st March.  Am I let off?  Pretty please? Aw thanks....

Whilst I'm on a roll, let's get straight onto the new challenge over at Fussy and Fancy where the theme is PINK AND BLACK.  I love this colour combo so this card was really easy to make, but as it was for my bosses daughter I wasn't sure if it was appropriate or not.  Turns out the whole family loved it so more brownie points for me, yeah!

Here's my card, but why not pop over and have a look at what the rest of the team have designed.  I'm totally amazed when I see their projects as they are all so different and use so many different techniques too.

Materials used:
Stamp - Corset
Coloured with promarkers
Papers - Dovecraft "Back to Basics 3"
Embroidery thread from my stash
Background stamp - Latin script
Mica powders - pearl & pastels
Distress ink - spun sugar

I'd like to enter my card into the following challenges:

Inky Chicks - birthday
In The Pink - pink & bling
Inky Impressions - favourite colour combo
Paper Shelter - celebrations
Penny's Paper Crafty - anything goes
Ooh La La - sparkle & shine

xx Happy crafting and glittery hugs xx

Some exciting Clarity Stamp news

Happy Sunday crafters and I'm here to tell you about some breaking news here in blogland.

Yesterday saw the launch of the new Clarity Stamp Blog Challenge.  We will be kicking off with our first montly challenge on the 1st March but if you want to pop and have a look at the blog beforehand you can say "hello" to the talented design team.

We've got a massive prize for the random winner of £50 to spend on the Clarity Stamp website courtesy of the very talented Barbara Gray, who will be popping in from time to time to say "hello".
