This is the last of my cards from October's Claritystamp shows on Create and Craft. It's also my favourite.
It combines two of my favourite Clarity stamps - Meadow Dance and the Poppies.
I started off by cutting an oval on my Cameo. Then I stamped the poppies into place to create the foreground. I masked off a couple of the poppies next to the girl with a ball, so that the Meadow Dance stamp would appear behind them. It looked a bit odd though as the stamp ended suddenly. I thought it would be a nightmare to mask them all off, so I finished the image off with a black pen. I just varied the height of my colouring so that it looked like the stamp continued right across.
I really like the contrast of bright red poppies and mat with the bright yellow of the sun and the black silhouette stamp. They're so appropriate for this time of year too.
Now I'm looking forward to November's shows that are on Create and Craft TV next weekend. I've just about finished my cards and today's task is to photograph them all. That's always a bit of a challenge!
I still have the cards that I made for the German shows to share too, so they will be appearing soon.
