Thank you

Well I had a fabulous but exhausting day yesterday at the NEC and spent a bit too, probably more than I anticipated!
I just couldn't resist the piercing boards for the Groovi system, knowing that it was just a matter of time before I got them and also invested in the Clarity punch to.
For this card, I've used the straight piercing boards for the piercing in the centre and the outside and the diagonal board for the dotted embossing on the circle frame.

Life of a Swallow

For this project I've used the first two stamps from this years Clarity Design club.
For the flock of Swallows, I cut my own mask and built up the images, they have then been coloured with Spectrum Noir pencils. 
Then having covered all three swallows with masks and making a narrow corridor, I've used three different Adirondack ink pads, Sunshine Yellow, Sunset Orange & Twilight Purple and dusted them over the area with the Clarity brushes for the background and edged it with a wiggly black line. 
I've then placed the sentiment to the right of the Swallows and edged the whole piece with black marker pen to give the effect that it's mounted on black card.
