Mother Earth

Good morning everyone, hope Friday finds you well.

Karl has left early so I have been out with the dogs. We were walking down the fields at 7-30 this morning just as one of the horses gave birth to a foal....obviously I kept the dogs away but was really upset as the foal just didn't seem to move...I have left a message with the farmer so I am really hoping that everything is ok...I shall be walking down later to check as I am just heading out to an appointment .

Before I go , I have a few minutes to share a card with you....

This uses one of the new Clarity stamps....Earth

I started with a piece of stencil card and stamped the main image

I then masked the image and started stamping some leaves from Tina's flowers stamp set, using a variety of artistry ink pads.

Using a lovely palate of browns, oranges, yellows and greens .

Then using a brush I dragged some more brown ink away from the mask, this will add a shadow effect around the image, look , this is what I had when I removed the mask.


Next , I added some colour to the main image using Soectrum Noir pencils.

I used a sentiment stamp and an accessory stamp to compliment my design

I do hope you like what I have created....

Mother Nature is so wonderful, I was looking to see how the frogs in my pond were growing the other day and I spotted one having a sleep in my montbretia grass. cute is he....

Oh, just seen the time...I had better dash...

Mikey and Fran moved in to their new flat on Wednesday and all went is beautiful and I am so happy for them both...

Clarity Cumbria lots still to do today...

Have a great day all

Much love and hugs...

  1. Hi Jo, hope the foal is ok! As for your card, I love it! Also saw it on Maria's show on Hochanda yesterday. Love the new stamps but spent so much money at the Open Day on Saturday I can only afford to buy one stamp atm. As I absolutely love dolphins (and do like seals too), guess which one I'll go for 😉 Have a great day xx

    1. Thanks Heidi, we all have our stamp wish
      The foal is doing well thanks, so that is good. Hope you have had a lovely weekend,
