It’s tipping down here in Kent!
Lovely day to be back at work actually.
We have soooo much on at the moment, that I dug deep for today’s blog, and found one of my oldest and most favoured cards, which I must have been hanging on to for at least 10 years.
Call me a hoarder, it’s fine, I can take it;
but I bet you understand when you see it…
The edges are rough and the corners are curled,
but the message is loud and clear.
So let’s take a look.
So let me get my Sherlock Holmes Deerstalker hat on….
with a cotton wool ball. I think I would have used Stonewashed, Denim and a Peachy colour like Salmon.
I think that I could probably get a similar look on Clarity-Card (coated but not glossy) using Adirondack Inks (water-soluble). But I also know that these colours would have faded by now.
This card was up on the art boards at the shows for YEARS!
So I must have used a permanent, fade-resistant ink, i.e. Archival.
So there we are.
A one-off, an original. Made many moons ago.
But as pertinent today as ever.
Not a lot of people know this (said Michael Caine)
There is a second part to the Serenity Prayer,
Have a great week.
P.S. LIMERICK WINNER:
Well, that was a very hard choice. They were so brilliant!
If you haven’t ready them, do go back to Saturday’s blog.
The verdict here at Clarity, difficult as it was,
was that not one but two were spot on:
There once was a Partridge from France
Who never was asked to dance
In Baroque he’d excel
Could Gavotte very well
But never was given the chance……

There once was a partridge from France
Who never got asked to dance
Then a handsome young pheasant
Said ” A waltz would be pleasant”
And it led to a whirlwind romance!
by Penny Burton
Very Well done !
So we shall be turning these two limericks into stamps,
and sending them to the Clarity Limerick Winners,
together with the Partridge stamp set of course !
I may get Mel to try her hand at drawing a dancing Partridge !
