Foxgloves Card

I had a lovely afternoon making a card for next month's shows yesterday. Very unusually for me I made the whole card, including designing it, in one go! 

Lots of my FB friends are on their way to Cowden today for two days of Clarity workshops with Barbara Gray. They all sound so excited and I so wish I was going. They've said they'll take lots of photos so I'll at least be able to see what they've been up to. I'm off to York with a friend for some retail therapy. We always have such a giggle so I'm sure she'll cheer me up. When I get home I have another card to make that I planned yesterday, so that's something to look forward to as well.

This is the first of my cards using the new Clarity stamps.

I inked the flowers up in Lilac Posies Memento ink and the leaves in Cottage Ivy Memento. I chose matching ProMarkers to colour them in with - Rose Pink, Pink Mittens and Forest Green.

Then out came my trusty cloud template and Ink Duster to create the sky.

The butterfly was made with Angelina Film and Fibres.

I cut the mat (bought from the Silhouette Store) on my Silhouette Cameo. I chose it as I thought the holes in it complemented the shape of the flowers. 

A pearl in each corner adds a finishing touch.

Stamps Used
With Love from the Remountable Happy Words Set
