Thanks for popping in.
Just a quickie here.
Today is spring-cleaning day at home.
Took me ages to squeeze back into my outfit!
It’s been a while….
But better late that never.
I noticed just HOW MUCH dust was gathering when the sun shone through the window today, (window cleaner must have been yesterday), and decided TODAY WAS THE DAY.
While I’m in the mood for cleaning.
Which will be very shortlived.
In fact, I can feel the enthusiasm waining as I write…
Sarah Brennan kindly reminded me of a very cool technique using tissue which bleeds, so I thought I would just use one colour, and rip-tear it to get a rip-torn background….
Tear it, lay it down and wet it with water.
(spritz it or paint it with a brush).
What kind of card? Pretty much any surface will take the stain off tissue; I went with our coated A6 Clarity Card.
Leave it to air dry for 10 minutes.
Peel off tissue and bin.
Leave to dry.
This fab Funky Foliage Stampset is in the Member’s half-price Summer Sale, which ends on 31st July.
It’s a superb set, illustrated by our Melanie.
Here’s a Club Stamp too. Use it as a base for the leaves.
Cor! Perfect Positioning, or what?!
I forget sometimes who invented transparent artstamps.
Imagine that. It’s so obvious really.
So glad I had a moment of Clarity…

Mounted on black glossy card. Done.
Our black coated stock is white on the back.
Simple, quick and arty.
Love how the light hits it.
No dust here!
Which reminds me, I really ought to get going;
this corset is starting to pinch!
Love & Hugs,
