In the Clouds

Hello Bloggers
and welcome to new visitors who have popped in from Barbara's blog, I hope you enjoy my blog and get some inspiration, I have been a Clarity fan for many years and continue to be excited and inspired by Barbara and the team and I am looking forward to see what is planned for 2016.


My card today features the Bird Row stamp and the wonderful cloud mask.
I started by doing the sky.  If the mask is new, it is worth dusting the card lightly with talc to stop it tearing the card.
I started at the top and lightly brushed cloudy sky distress ink, then move the mask down and brush more ink and repeat until you get to the end.  I also added a touch of pink.
I had a bit of a rummage through my pre-prepared backgrounds and found one I'd done with chalk acrylic paints which matched nicely.  I stamped the birds on the cloudy sky, then again on the painted card.
I added a fine line under the branch and did a little zentangle pattern, then added the cut out birds over the top.  I inked round the edges of the card and added a fine black line all round, then on another piece of the same painted background. 
Thanks for visiting, hope to see you again soon,
Take care,
Janet xxx
