A little Clarity

Good evening,peeps! I hope you all had a good weekend.
I've been working on Clarity cards today for the next Create and Craft TV show in June and it occurs to me that I've never shown you the ones I made for the last show at the beginning of May.

You may have caught a glimpse of this one if you watched the show. It's a combination of three of the kits with the Postcard Kit stamped in the middle of a sky backgound (created with cotton wool soaked in Versamark and Adirondack Cloudy Blue and Stonewashed brayered over) surrounded by the Famous Places kit and a couple of the Stamp stamps added for good measure. I paper pieced the Taj Mahal and the Leaning Tower of Pisa. The images in the stamps were coloured with Promarkers - I find that Promarkers give a better result on the Claritycard than Copics.

This was my personal favourite of the cards I made from the last bunch of kits. I used the Big and Juicy 'Foliage' pad to brayer the backgound in two parts - sky first then masked that and did the earth. I just love that image of the Massai warrior and I bought him as a lineart image before I got this silhouette in my DT kit. All of the silhouetted images are stamped with Jet Black Archival ink and I thought that rafia was the perfect finishing touch.
Well it's just a brief post for this evening - lots more work to do!
Have a pleasant and peaceful evening!
