Clarity Stamp, My Brayer And Barbara Gray On TV.

Hi,It's a good Monday for me, I hope it is the same for you.

This card is copied from a demonstration I watched by Barbara Gray  from Clarity Stamps yesterday on a TV shopping channel.

The clouds are, I feel, just magic and so easy to do.

 Brayer your smooth, coated, card stock with a layer of Cloudy Blue Adirondack Ink and taking a cotton wool ball ( fluff this up a bit)  dab it into a Versamark Ink Pad.
 'Stamp' the cotton wool ball over the card stock then load your brayer with Denim Ink and after taking off some of  the excess ink, flick the brayer across your project.

When you are satisfied with the depth of colour, lightly buff  your work with some soft tissue. I had a couple of tries before I was happy but it did not take too long ...have a go!

I am going to use this technique again and again.
I think it's just grand!  Thanks Barbara!

Thank you for popping by today and have a great week.
