A Girly Clarity card

Good morning!
ooh dont I sound chirpy, Im not really, when this goes live I will be running around the house with one leg in my pants, a slice of toast hanging out of my mouth while screeching at Amber to get a move on and feeding the fish with my spare hand as I stagger past-not to mention breakfast for Milly posh paws and the garden bunnies and the regular morning ritual of the 'elusive hair bobbles'....
Anyway, today might be a good day, Im hoping Postman Pat will bring my new super fantastic Camera from Amazon-yeah, decent photos & tutorials are imminent!!
Right I have waffled on for long enough, time for a card!
This is one I did for Creative Cardmaking, Beginners guide to 'Resist'

I used the Corset Montage stamp from Claritystamp and Pink Sherbert & Pitch Black Adirondack ink, Versamark, clear embossing powder.

I decoupaged the Corset.
I like to graduate the colour when doing a resist, it adds more drama I think.
I did have to keep this quite simple for a beginner but I like it just the same.
If you would like to see the instructions for this & the other projects, issue 37 of Creative Cardmaking is still available.

Have a good one.
See you tomorrow for this weeks giveaway!

  2. Fantastic card love how you have done this Melanie

  3. Loving all the pinks Maria.

    Also loved the black and white box you made on C&C. Had a go and found five sides difficult, probably becasue I don't have a suitable shaped die to get the base. So went for an eight sided one and worked a treat with lots of spellbinders.

    Hope to blog it later and will of course give you a hoot and thanks for the inspiration.
