Bank Holiday weekend....

Here it is the last bank holiday before Christmas....
So time to relax, spend time with friends and family, and recharge our batteries before winter....
Today, I am going to share some of my Clarity DT work with you....oh, how cool does that sound!!!!!
Did you get chance to watch the show on Wednesday? I recorded it and watched it in the evening....oh Maria was fab and her demonstrations were brilliant....I was so proud when she introduced me....
This first card is made with the gorgeous snowman stamp, some Distress inks, masking, spritzing and a little colouring with watercolour pencils....
It is all one layer....

To achieve this design I inked through the Clarity stencil with Distress ink and then spritzed with water before removing the mask and patting dry....this really gives a great effect...I stamped the tree stamps in Black Archival ink, a few finishing details and job done...

This lovely Christmas tree stamp is so versatile and just shouted out Zentangle to I stamped using Black Versafine ink and began to doodle.....oh how relaxing.....
I used distress ink and water to add a little bit of shade at the bottom of the design.

I do hope you like these.....
Have a great weekend and thank you all for looking in....
Hugs. Jo. X
