Good Morning to you! Yes it's half term and time for me to get my breath back and recharge those run down batteries.
I am determined that I will spend my holiday doing things that I want to do and really chill out so that I can face the next half term full on and not run out of steam.
And what better way to start the holiday than a Maria Workshop and a whole day crafting with my friends...That was Saturday and we did some marvellous projects...it also kick-started my mojo back into action and just in time as the next lot of Clarity stamps have been sitting on my workspace, aka the dining table, for a few days. I had opened them and looked but then put them back in the envelope til this week!!
And that's what I spent some of Sunday and yesterday doing! It's just wonderful to think I could craft all week if I want to!
Colin and I did go out yesterday for a look round Newbank Garden Centre at Bury where we had our breakfast and a big cup of coffee. It was worth going for that!
Well enough of my waffle.
I want to share a card from the last Claritystamp show again done with the Shepherds Purse set. This one I used the one with the bigger flower.
I stamped a whole sheet full of this stamp then brushed over the flowers with my pink ink brush...I didn't add any ink as I just wanted very pale pink. I then set about cutting all the flowers out... It did take a while but I think it was worth it. I wanted to create a blossom tree so I used the NDC stencil and masked off the bottom part so I just got the tree. I added hills and ground at the bottom. I then stuck the flowers on with cosmic shimmer glue. I stamped Anniversary above the tree and added the flowers to the corners. I then added the rafia ribbon. I sanded some cordinations card...brown with a pink core... and matted the card on it before mounting it onto an 8 x 8 card blank.
Please let me know what you think of it.
Have a nice day what ever you are doing
