Good morning and welcome to June....hope you are having a great start to the new month.
I am, as Barbara Gray is on tv with two hours of Clarity, oh what a great start to the month,plus I have coffee and chocolate biscuits.
Thank you to all the crafters who entered last months challenge we had some fantastic pieces of work.
Congratulations to the winner and the top five. Remember that the winner gets a £50 voucher to spend at Clarity.
The new theme this month is .....Masculine.....
Here is my DT piece, I do hope you like it...
It started life as one of the throw away pieces from my Gelli Plate...(after seeing Barbara's blog, I now keep everything).....http://barbaragrayblog.blogspot.co.uk
This is the piece of paper.
I then stamped the British Isle stamp from Clarity on it, plus the compass.
Then I added some colour with Distress Markers.
On a separate piece of card I stamped the hot air balloon.
For the next bit, I used a glass cutting mat, a cutting knife and an MDF tag from Rob the MDF Man..
I put pva glue onto the tag and stuck the paper to it, then cut around the tag.
Then a light sanding around the edges.
Next I coloured the edges with Inka-Gold applied with a piece of cut'n'dry foam.
Then some stamping with one of my favourite Clarity stamps the Crackle stamp...honestly I use this stamp so much....if you don't have it ...you really need it....just visit the web site here...http://www.claritystamp.co.uk
The next step that I did was to add some splashes with Distress Stains....
On another piece of card I stamped the word Dream and cut it to shape, then coloured and decorated it.
I do love to use this film strip ribbon from Tim Holtz...,I added a little glass bottle of decorative sand and a metal embellishment.
And this is what I got...
Here is a closer look.
The other DT members have made so fantastic pieces of work, if you would like to see them just go to the blog...
Thanks for looking in today, I have gardening to do this afternoon, hanging baskets to plant and borders to weed.
Enjoy your afternoon,
Much love and hugs,
