Got used to blogging every day with Jayne Nestorenko's stamp launch! So to stop my withdrawals here is one I made early using Claritystamps. Only a few more days before we close the Clarity Stamp Challenge Blog for March, there have been lots of super entries but there is still time to do one and have a go. April's challenge will go live on the 1st with a new theme.
This one started as an ATC for the Clarity group I'm in, I think we all struggled with the idea of this one but there were some fabulous ATCs being sent out in the end. We are truly our own worst critics!
The theme for the month was Inspiration - and do you think I could get any? - in the end I just looked out of my window and although it was a cold and snowy scene that I saw, I could visualise summer coming (oh please hurry up!).
So this first picture is of the card I made looking through a window (there is acetate behind the top frame). I used Clarity stamps - Cherry Blossom, Poppies and Lupin and then stamped the Butterfly stamp onto acetate and coloured before cutting out to attach to the front. The little butterflies in the scene are simply punched ones.
So the ATC I sent is based on this idea but using the Clarity Spring Bouquet stamp. The rhyme started with something I remembered from school days - 'Can't think, Brain numb, Inspiration won't come' and I added onto that ' I looked around and what did I see? Nature was inspiring me.'
So there you have it 2 for the price of one lol!
I hope you all enjoyed Jayne's show yesterday on Create and Craft, I see there was one sell out so I'm really pleased for her and am looking forward to doing some more cards for her at the next launch. Welcome to my newest follower Debbie. x
