Good afternoon to you!
I have been a bit manic again with work taking over my life but I thought I would steal 5 mins to share a card from May's Claritystamp show!
It seems an age since I was doing these samples but it is only 5 or 6 weeks! So much has gone on in that time that I shudder thinking about it! Roll on next week....I hope that I can slow down and take things a bit more calmly. I will have the next batch of samples to do then but at least I won't be having to rush around in the mornings getting ready for work!
The last show had some stunning stamp sets on it and I love the Shepherd's Purse stamps set. Amanda Branston off the design team drew the original ...she's so talented.... And I feel so proud to say she's a friend of mine! How lucky am I!
I made a few things with this set but the first one I did was this shaped card. I cut the shape for the topper first and then used brushos to do the background. Once this was dry I stamped the shepherds purse into place using two of the stamps and then the name of the wild flower...it's too pretty to be called a weed!
I added a bit of colour to the flowers and leaves with pencils and used a white pen to highlight the petals in the blue part.
I matted the topper onto a piece of blue clarity paper then onto a shaped card blank.
Please let me know what you think of it!
With love from
