Well I can't believe its been nearly a week since the Clarity Shows! This week has flown by!
Getting back into th eswing of work has been a struggle this week ....I think as its been so dark and wet and cold I have just wanted to stay in bed especially as thats where Colin has been when I have been leaving my house. Him being retired hasn't really impacted on me going out to work until now!
I also think I had such a relaxing Christmas Holiday that I in someway relaxed a bit too much if thats possible!!
But the week has really gone fast and so much has been done at work that it feels like we've never been off!!
Anyway here is one of my samples from last Sundays Clarity Show on Create and Craft.
To add perspective I then added the small balloon. I inked the stamp and grey adirondack and then spritzed it lightly with water to make it stamp with a dimpled effect. I then overstamped it in second generation grey to make it have a full shape......Thank goodness for Clarity stamps!!!
I added a moon mask and brushed a blue sky and used a make up sponge around the moon mask to make it pop! I then removed the mask and took the whiteness off the moon by brushing over without adding any more ink. Its quite amazing how much ink this brushes hold!
Now to do the big Balloon in the fusible fibres.I used 3 colours of fibres...pink blue and yellow but its amazing how many colours this makes. I make 2 so I had a choice of them and they were both done the same but they both look different! I cut out th ebasket and the balloon and stuck them over the stamped balloon. Heres a close up.
You can see the different colours here but also you can see the effect of the smaller balloon.
The next part was to mount the topper onto some dark green card and mount it to one side of an 8 x 8 card blank. I then used dark green adirondack ink and the letterbox and numbers kit and shapes to add the sentiment.
I did practice first to see it it would fit!
I thought this was a good sentiment to use for this set of stamps!
I have to say it really is a beautiful balloon stamp and the pattern on it is lovely.
Well thats all for today folks.
I am off out with Colin so I will see you all later.
Please leave a comment if you pop by to look.
Happy Crafting and weekend!
love and hugs
