Above and Beyond!
I've just realised that I haven't blogged the cards from the last Claritystampers East workshops, I had been asked to do some cards for men, so this is what I came up with.....
We used the clockwork stencil and the filigraphy balloon for this one. Tape the stencil in place on the card, then blend distress or artistry inks through. I used brown, blue and a touch of red and green for this (it does look a bit brighter in real life!)
Remove the stencil and add a bit more ink to take away the starkness
Blend more ink round the edges of the card, then add a few brads
Stamp the balloon on the card and also on a spare piece of card. Colour the one on the spare piece and just cut out the balloon and layer over the stamped image on the card.
For the second card, I did one which is very similar to one I'd made previously.
Using one of the landscape masks, mask off the top part of the card then add lots of black ink to the exposed part of the card. Remove the mask, then stamp both balloons in place.
Add some clouds by doing the old torn paper trick Stamp the large balloon onto a spare piece of white card, then colour in and cut out the balloon and layer over the stamped image on the card.

Finally, a word about the events in London this afternoon: I have no idea what motivates people to do some things, all I can do is express my condolences to the families and friends of the people who were killed and to wish the injured a full and speedy recovery!
