Scarecrow and Poppies

This card uses some of my favourite Clarity stamps, the Scarecrow, Poppies, and What Is This Life.  I think What Is This Life is probably my most used Clarity verse stamp.  It just seems perfect for so many cards.

I also used my new Splodge Away Mat.  I'm so impressed with it.  I brayered the grass using a Lettuce Adirondack ink pad.  As you can see it went on really smoothly, with no lines!

The sky and sun were done with Distress ink pads.  I used Tumbled Glass with an ink duster for the sky and Spiced Marmalade and Mustard Seed on a sponge for the sun.  That is also how I did my new blog header.  More on that at a later date, as it's actually a sneak peak at a sample I've done for HSE 24.

The poppies were coloured in with ProMarkers.  I must say colouring is growing on me and I rather enjoyed that part.

The scarecrow's jacket started off as a piece of patterned paper that looked like hessian.  I added some colour with ProMarkers and then added some Walnut Stain Distress Ink.  I thought he'd probably look a bit distressed after standing out in a field all day.
