Floral bunny

Good Morning!

So today is very exciting for those of us involved with Claritystamp - Barbara is over in the USA and will be on the TV in USA launching Clarity over there.  The show will be on UK too at 3.00pm
There is a whole lot of new stamps and stencils, so don't miss it!  They are already on the UK create and craft website, along with some of the sample cards.  If you stop by again tomorrow, I will blog the first of my US samples, but for today, this is one from the last UK show

I love this set, very versatile and pretty, there is a cat and a rabbit made out of flowers, along with a border and a circle of flowers.  It is called The Floral Figures set
I decided to make the border into a frame, so stamped four times, then ran some masking tape round the edge to leave the centre exposed while I stamped the rabbit and a touch of the border in the corner.  I also added a bit of background and ground for him to sit on.
I removed all the masking tape, and spent quite a while colouring in all the tiny flowers and leaves using the fine end of my distress marker pens. I only used two colours for the flowers, yellow and orange and green for the leaves.
To finish, I ran round the edge of the frame with a black fine line pen and added some black gems,
then mat and layer.
Hope you like it - I have to admit, I am rather pleased with it!
Have a great day and don't forget to tune in at 3.00pm!

  1. Hello Janet! I can imagine that Clarity may really take off in the USA... could be very exciting!! I really love this card.... I think it is one of my favourite ever cards... the delicate flowers are really pretty! :) xx

  2. I love this card and i love the set, can't wait for mine to come. I am looking forward to the show later, how funny that Barbara created clear stamps when she lived in America 20 years ago and now she's at the biggest craft trade show in the world showing them what she does best! Glad Deano there too :-)
