Snowed In

After getting this Letters set of Clarity Stamps I was putting words on everything, but this was my favourite one based on what we had seen Barbara demo.
The image of the cottage and trees is a complete stamp and I felt it was a cheat just using 1 stamp, so I sponged in some humps of snow in the foreground and still felt I needed to do more.. thats when I remembered my fave little lab silhouette stamp from the Home framer set. Having placed him behind one of the piles of snow I was quite please with the result.
I brayered  the background  and then the tricky bit working out placement of the letters, originally I was going to title it  'Homeward Bound' but I opted for the easier option of 'Snowed In'. I worked out where to place my letters using the topper I had made...the aim is that the letter blocks will hold the topper by cutting slots under the letters.
Once I had got the letters in place I finished off the backgroundwith a fluttering of Clarity snowflakes, cut the slots and put my topper in place. I was pleased with the response I got when i put this pic up on facebook.
Snow looks pretty on a card but I believe many parts of the country are coping with the hazards of snow again today so I hope everyone keeps safe if they are affected. Here in Wales we have biting cold winds from the Artic which have kept us awake howling round our roof. Never mind the noise of a bit of wind won't stop me going into my crafty attic to while away a few hours because there is a card to be made for my grandson Sion's birthday ..... now where has my Mojo gone .... always seems to disappear when I have a masculine card to do .....bye for now Annie xx

  1. I do love this card. That lab looks like he's having so much fun in the snow. x
