A bit of shimmer and Clarity.

Happy Sunday folks!
Todays card is one of my Clarity samples for todays Clarity shows.
I had great difficulty getting pictures again, it was dark outside and my lightbulbs are mainly those dim energy savers, very frustrating because the whole batch look off-colour, glary or shadowy!

This uses the Mardigras Masks.
I silver embossed onto velum and coloured with Cosmic Shimmer paints.
The background is sprayed with Cosmic Shimmer and then stamped in Archival Black, I also coloured the roses with the spray.

I really tried to catch all the swirly detail in the picture but it was an epic fail!

Ok im off, tons to do!


  1. This card is fab Maria... it is frustrating when the light/photo lets the side down! My photographic 'studio' is in the kitchen, card plonked on top of my microwave with my portable Daylight Lamp for lighting!

  7. I can see your swirls. Maybe not as much as you'd like though. This is such a neat collage of interesting pieces! I love it! The colors and that image are great!
