Video – Colored Peonies and Clarity Stencil Brushes GIVEAWAY

HELLO! Happy Friday to all of you! Today I have a video to share with you that showcases these two cards I made using some products from The Ton and a new product to me, Clarity Stencil Brushes. Stay tuned because I have a pack of Clarity Brushes to give away to one of you! First, let me show you the still shots of the cards I created in the video:


For this first card, I used the Clarity Brushes to create this soft stenciled background. Check the video to see my oopsie on how I got splatters of ink on my card… LOL!


The Spectrum Noir Sparkle Glitter Pens really leave a LOT of shine behind. I am quite impressed with them.


The Geometric Lattice Coverplate is GORGEOUS. I love all the detail. I used it as a stencil and as a die cut panel! Two cards out of one – perfecto!


The Large Peony 1 stamp set is 1 of 3 available Peony background stamps in the line! It’s a great image with lots of space to color, watercolor or even paper piece! MMMMM. Check out the sparkle here from the pen!


Video time! You can watch it right here or over on my youtube channel in HD!

GIVEAWAY: When I decided to try out the Clarity Stencil brushes, I purchased two so I could give one away to you all! Make sure to enter in the “Rafflecopter” below to enter.
