Silver Birch Clarity Stamps.

Hi Crafter's,

New arrivals in the shop last week. The award winning Clarity stamps.
I was so exited when they arrived on Tuesday it was like Christmas all over again.
My darling Husband Grahame, made me a beautiful  stand to display them. And I have to say it looks fantastic.

Well as you can guess I couldn't wait to get started with them.
Here is one I have done using the Silver Birch  stamp.
This card was inspired by my walk home from the shop a couple of weeks ago. As I approached home the sun was a red ball, low in the sky, it was a cloudless blue sky with just a hint of red on the horizon.
I stamped the trees onto my card then stamped it again onto copy paper to create a mask. I then went to work sponging in  the background.
This is my second attempt at this card. the first one I made I ruined because I stamped some leaves on and they just didn't look right. So this time I left them off and I was much happier with it.

Other stamps used in this card are also from Clarity stamps  and they are flock of birds and wild poppies.

I also embossed a double frame around the finished picture with the Hougie board.

Well that's all for now, I hope you like it.
Thank you for visiting and I will see you again soon with another card.
