Clarity stamping !

I should have posted this last week but forgot!

Some friends of mine from the Imag-e-nation forum (which is closing next week) meet from time to time for a day of crafting and chat and sometimes just coffee and shop but whatever it is we always enjoy each others company and have a laugh along the way --lol !

We had a treat last week as one of the demonstrators in the shop we like to go to (Strikes Garden centre in Bournmoor, Durham ) is a fan of Clarity stamps by Barbara Gray and the shop also stock them. They are lovely stamps on there own or you can use more than one to build a picture by masking different areas of the pic and also use other techniques like braying and sponging to build a picture.

I got the opportunity to try the tecnique out and this is the finished result, it is just a raw project and needs to be made into a card but i think i will just keep it on the wall in my craft room.

I also made this card for my sister who is feeling under the weather to cheer her up, she loves pigs so thought this would make her smile ! 
I stamped the image at a friends crafting get-together and colourd it in with Watercolour pencils ----- loved the finished card !

I think its a nice cheerfull card !  Hope you like it too ----

Its about time i posted some cards !

Hi everybody, what a day i've had !
The forum that i am a regular poster is closing at the end of the month. It was a shock when i heard the news yesterday and couldn't imagine life without being part of it as i have got so many precious cyber friends on there. Some of them i meet up with who live in my area but others who don't i didn't want to loose touch with. I'm pleased to say that one of the members decided to start a new forum so lots of people have been moving over today so thank you Lynn for all your hard work !

Thought you might like to see some cards i have made recently!

First one was made for my Mother-in law to give to friends for their Golden Wedding.  Thank you to Daizy-Mae from the imag-e-nation forum helped me with the gold initials !

Second one is a stitched card i made using a template i bought at a craft show, you prick the pattern in a circle and stitch very much like spirelly --i added a "moorhouse" decoupage of a boy and girl in the centre !


Third one was made using a embossing folder and then i used glamour dust on the embossing to highlight it !

Thank you for looking
