Cards or football??

Hello everyone,

I had a wonderful day yesterday at the Clarity open day - it was great to see everyone.  There were some brilliant demos going on and a very happy crowd of enthusiastic Claritystampers watching.  Lots of lovely goodies to buy and a tasty lunch.  Thanks to everyone for making it a brilliant event.

Today's cards are from the workshop at Easton on Thursday where those who attended had made the tough decision to come and make cards, rather than watch the football (actually, it wasn't that tough a decision for everyone!!)

This card is very easy....just use distress inks to add colour to some card, Stamp a line of trees, the bird and word, add a bit of shadow under the trees and throw some water over it and blot!

Using the fabulous countryside stencil, make a scene in the aperture, stamp the filigraphy balloons in place, then stamp the large balloon on a separate piece of card, colour with promarkers, cut out then use an embossing tool to give it some shape and overlay onto the image

Use the wonderful abstract squares stencil (one of my new favourites!!) to create a soft background, stamp the woodland animals and trees in place and add some shading.

Thanks to all the ladies who came along, we had a great time
