Hi everyone. I hope you're having a good week; I had a lovely day on Tuesday shopping for my new sewing machine. I found out that fellow DT member Kirsty Goodwill has also recently got into sewing, so we met up in John Lewis' sewing department and went for a lovely catch-up after. I'm so excited to get going but I must finish my Clarity samples first.
Today's post is on my mother-in-law's Mother's Day card.
I thought I'd have a change and use some of my neglected non-Clarity stamps. The main image is an old Easter stamp by Graphics (now Chocolate Baroque). There's no eggs or bunnies on it though and I thought the beautiful spring flowers would make a lovely Mother's Day card.
I stamped it in Black Archival and coloured it in with my Spectrum Noir pencils.
The background is created with some old foam backed stamps that I got from QVC (again many years ago) and Butterscotch Adirondack Ink. I also brushed this around the edges with a Clarity stencil brush.
"Happy Mother's Day" is a Clarity stamp (I had to get one in somewhere!).
Some faux stitching and a bow finish it off...................
.....................I might have a go at some proper stitching on a card now I have my new toy. I could never get the tension right on my old one.
Must get on. Lots to do!
