Thanks for popping in.
Thursday’s blog is always blue, right?
Well, here’s a fab little card
which was very kindly given to me by Chris M.
I have been walking past it every day for weeks, because it was perched by the door to the artroom.
And today it beckoned to me,
as I was wading through treacle trying to prep for Sunday TV.
“Use me!” it called, “Use me for inspiration!”
Chris used the House Martin from the New Design Stamp Club
which was released back in the springtime.
If you are a member of one or all 3 of the Clarity Clubs,
pray tell us below what you think of them.
Is it value for money?
Do you benefit from it?
Do you enjoy it?
We launched our 3rd club, the Groovi Club, last January.
Took a bit of working out,
with the monthly payment scheme and what not,
but we are now able to handle plenty more members,
so roll up roll up roll up !!
Here’s how it works….
I thought I would use the House Martin stamp, because I love it,
and it spoke to me today…
Stamp him on a piece of light blue parchment,
using Black Archival.
Speed dry with a heat gun,
if you are up to your derriere in crocodiles like me!
Flip over, place on one of our soft black embossing mats, and use the embossing tools in the Groovi Starter Kit to bring out his wings in white.
Doesn’t he look fab against the black mat?!
Colour in with a Stormy Sky Distress marker
Oooh la la!!
Now there’s a nice Christmas present for somebody!
This Gel Press Petite piece I did with some lace and a blue ink pad
is perfect for the background…
Need to give the bird a frame.
Every Groovi parcher should have one of these!
Colour in the frame from behind using the same Distress marker,
and layer up on more light blue.
But we’re going to sandwich the lace card inbetween.
Doesn’t that look neat?
I think less is more, so let’s just mount this on white.
If you want to get this House Martin,
you may want to consider joining the Stamp club
and speaking to our Jeanine on 01732 868215.
She is lovely, and very very helpful.
In fact, you may just get her to sell you the House Martin Stamp and project on its own….
Then you can have a look at the quality of the lovely monthly concertina project sheets too.
But now I must crack on.
I’ve got one more project to prep before I can go to sleep….
Thanks for the inspiration, Chris!
Love & Hugs,
