A moment of Clarity

I Have been playing with Amber's brayer and Clarity stamps this week. I have been doing a large batch of these designs,minus the glittery snowflakes. Well i had to do just 1 with some sparkle didnt i!  The ones with just a couple of gems on look really elegant though.

'Peace' is gold embossed. I used denim adirondack to brayer the edges and inside the C. I used Bottle green adirondack for the tree's. Snow was added with sakura gel pen.

Well its wednesday again,so time to have a peek at everybody's work desk,drool over new goodies,maybe pick up a couple of handy tips,maybe a bit of gossip. Speaking of gossip, i have been reading Julia's 'Tales from behind the till',if you have'nt seen them you gotta go have a look,so funny-i think she is one of those people who just attracts weirdo's and loony's! 

Anyway,my desk today, I have a couple of nearly finished cards, some Sweet Pea stamps that i won!, some gold glamour dust-i adore the crystal but thought i would try the gold because it was a quid! Also i have my new heat tool that my lovely daddy bought me from Ostletwistle Mills (did i spell that right?)  I put a tumble dryer sheet next to my doily die cutter deliberately to remind me to share a tip with you (assuming you dont already know) If you rub your die with the sheet before you use it,your die cut doesnt get stuck inside the die-result!,how many times have you had to prize one out of a Marianne die with a sharp instrument!

That was a long post for me, im gonna go over to Julia's blog later and try and catch up with as many WOYWW bloggers as possible, click here to go see whats going on at Julia's.
