A weekend of Clarity

Hello bloggers,

Well, this weekend was a bit of a Claritystampers East-fest for me!  Saturday, it was the lovely Bawburgh crew.  I chose the treescape stencil and stamp and the outline ducks to work with


 

The second of these cards was heavily based on a card Jo Rice did for the DT.  I loved the idea of the stencil and stamp together, so I asked if I could pinch the idea for a workshop.  Check out Jo's blog for the original.

On Sunday, I did the first of the Suffolk workshops in Great Blakenham, it was brilliant to meet a lovely lot of new ladies, everyone was a bit nervous to start with, some of the ladies had never been to a workshop before, but we soon settled down to making cards and having a good time.

'Pud' is one of favourite Claritystamps, but I don't see it being used much, so thought I would give it a bit of an airing, so we did this at both workshops.
 
The two cards below are the one we did in Great Blakenham, both involve brayering and I was so impressed with how well everyone did - especially those who had never brayered before!
 

 
I am already planning the next lot!!

    1. Thank you. There are no Gelli backgrounds on these cards, they are either stencilled, inked or stamped.
      One of the features of my cards is that they all have cat hair included somewhere!
