A Little bit of Clarity peace!

You know that I have a long (and growing) list of fave Clarity stamps right? Well I have to say,when I first spotted the Dove and the Peace stamps they rocketed toward the top of my fave list!  I am loving the peace swirly ends,loads of possibilities for backgrounds, edging borders etc.  The Dove is beatiful, so well drawn for decoupage.
I used Versamark and gold detail powder to emboss the Peace and Dove.  The backing is gold velum that I have had for a long time,Ii never know what to do with the stuff!
I added Diamond Sparkles with my quickie glue pen, looks lovely against the pearlised card used for stamping.  I coloured my gems with a Copic.

If you like the stamps the link to the Clarity shop is over there somewhere ---->

Thanks for looking!
