Clarity Brayering & the Splodge Away!

Hello there gang, and welcome to my new followers, Im glad to have you!

I was going to show you the full picture of the Mirror I made for the Splodge Away tv launch, but errrm, I think Tom has took it up North with him so you will have to wait a bit longer.

So instead, today's card is a warm up piece from a Claritystamp pattern building class a while ago.
We used Leafy Corner (the one that started the clever corners apparently) and the William Shakespear sentiment.

This was the first time my gang got their hands on the Splodge Away blending mat, the brayering around the edges of this piece was a doddle for them!
I had to ring Tom after the class and ask for more mats because the class had taken most of them off me- I hadnt intended selling them!

Have a great day whatever your up to!


  1. I so love this card - I think I may have to get the leafy corner. My Splodge Away mat is on the way from c & c, I can't wait to get it. I'm hoping it will improve my blending which isn't very good at the moment. I hope you have recovered from Newbury now xx

  2. I was one of the lucky ones who did that class and yes I was one of the class that kidnapped a splodge away mat.
    My brayering is fantastic now I use the mat and blending and distressing is stress-less, I want to say a big thank you to Maria for bring this product to me and Tom a big big thank you for inventing it, oh and when are you doing 8x8 mats for taking out and about xx

  3. Beautiful card!! I'm inspired to dig out my clarity corner stamps! I can't wait for my new mat to come. Because their website crashed, Tom phoned me and is sending one today. What a nice guy!

  4. Thanks for all of the lovely comments everybody, I really am touched that you like the SplodgeAway Mat, it makes it all worth while, thank you must go to you also Maria (you are a star), however as of the mirror, this is being held for ransom.... lol :) so is your craft kit... hehehe

  5. Before I forget, the card above is awesome and your brayering is flawless!

  6. This card is brilliant, I love the pattern repeat, if I did this I would have to concentrate really hard. Good to know that Suzicraft website was down as I tried it straight away as soon as Create & Craft sold out. Will try again straight away.

  7. A lovely card, Maria. It was great to see you on C&C again.
