Hello everyone,

I'm a bit late blogging today - time just whizzes on by doesn't it.  This is my last sample from the last U.S Clarity show, using the Finches set which comes with the two sizes of finch and the lovely leafy sprig.

I started by making a mask for the centre of my card, then stamped the spring all round the edgeI added some shading with a stencil brush, then removed the mask and stamped and coloured the Cardinal with coloured pencils. I squiggled a couple of lines round the frame and added some gems

I stamped and coloured the smaller bird on a separate piece of card and added it in the corner.

I am looking forward to the next Clarity show on Sunday- more lovely stamps and stencils to tempt you... I will be at the Claritystampers East workshop, so will watch when I get home

Take care and stay warm
Janet xx


  1. Hello Janet! Your cardinal is very pretty! Is 'squiggling' a technical card-making term?!!

  2. Thank you. Yes, we have a few highly technical terms in card-making!

  3. It's lovely Janet I love your colour choice too. Xx

  4. Great card Janet, really pretty background and lovely colour


Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment - I appreciate and enjoy reading them all xxx
