Welcome to my crafty blog and another rare occasion when there is no stamping at all on my card! I was inspired by the theme over at Just Add Ink to use one of Claritystamp’s ‘skyscape’ dies – I went with New York which is so iconic.
I started with a black 5×5 card blank and attached a piece of Clarity’s ‘Amazonia’ designer paper to it. I love these colours – they made me think of a beautiful morning sunrise with the yellows and pinks in the sky.
I cut the New York skyscape into a smaller square of black card, and trimmed the ‘New York’ words out of it so that the sky was left clear. I then glued the card onto the designer paper.
To finish, I added one of Clarity’s black word stickers. I decided it didn’t need any backing paper as a mount, so that the words popped out from the card – and hopefully they say it all!
I haven’t been to New York for quite a few years and the pandemic put paid to my plans to get there this year. I’ve got a few friends in the USA and I’m hoping that as international travel is now beginning to ease it won’t be too long before I’m back there.
