Shine Bright!

Hello there! How are you? I am good and enjoying the summer hols so far. We've had a lovely bikeride and been to Fellfoot Park. Plenty of sunshine and seen friends too! Definitely a positive start to the holidays. Lets hope it continues!

I have a card to share with you today made using a relatively recent Clarity stamp plus distress oxides.

The stamp is part of a set - Earth, Air, Fire and water. I managed to pick up this stamp last week on the Crafters Companion site when they had a very special offer running just for the day ... I got a bargain I think! 

To make the card I stamped the image then masked and created the background using distress oxides in picked raspberry, candied apple and wild honey....I coloured the image using spectrum noir pencils....

and the sentiment is from a set by Tim Holtz

I do hope you like it!

I am meeting my mum today and we are off to Carnforth to visit the Christmas in July craft demo held by Rowan Tree Crafts. I suspect  we won't be there for too long sadly as I have one young lady and one little girl who are not impressed with my plans!!!!

Big hugs

Rachel xx
