Wallflowers

I love this  Clarity Wallflower set which I bought recently when it was on special offer. I've been dying to experiment with Perfect Pearls after watching Barbara Gray's demonstration at the GNPS in Harrogate earlier this month.  To colour the image I used a water brush and the perfect gold, perfect copper, kiwi and forever green mica powders.  The individual flowers have then been cut out and decoupaged.  The message is a Clarity Stamp which is also a recent purchase having its first outing, it has been stamped with black archival ink and heat embossed with detail clear embossing powder.  I am very pleased with the outcome and the photo seems to captures the sheen quite well.. I'v matted the main image onto black card and create the background matt with the Clarity dotty wave stencil and Adirondack Peach Bellini.  This is the first Clarity mask I've bought and am very impressed with it.  I also recently invested in a set of the Clarity stencil brushes which I have to say are fantastic, much better than the brushes I've been using up until now, I can definitely recommend them, and they clean up so easily.  I hope you like the finished card, all comments are gratefully received thanks.
