Underwater scene - my first DT card!

I have been a part of the Clarity Design Team for a year now.  Barbara asked me last year at Cowden.  I can't believe it has been that long! 
 
This set of stamps was the very first set I got to work with.  I was sooo excited to get them, but it was only a couple of days before the show on the TV, so I stayed up til the small hours and made three cards ready to send them 'next day delivery' to make sure they arrived on time.
I tuned in on the Sunday very excited and hopeful that my cards would be shown - and they weren't!!  I was gutted!!  I know that many cards don't get shown and I am more used to it now, but I wish the producers there knew how much we put into the cards we make.  This is my favourite of the cards I made for that show and it is on the Clarity website and on the display boards at shows, so I feel okay about it now!
 
The bit at the bottom of the main image is done using Fran-tage embossing powders and glitters.
 
Wishing you all a lovely day
Janet x

    1. Thank you Sue, the background is done a bit like we did at the last workshop, brayering colour on and spritzing, then using cling film scrunched over then top. I also used bubble wrap to add some bubbles. I may have spritzed with a gold colour rather than water, but it didn't dry very well on the Clarity card
