Well, good morning! Thanks to all who entered yesterday’s blog competition. It’s still wide open, and you’ve got until I start next Monday’s post to enter. If you happened to miss it, you can read it and enter the competition here: https://www.claritymattersblog.com/2020/06/29/salty-air-and-corsets/. There’s a Claritystamp set in it for one lucky winner!
And, just to be kind, I thought I’d give you one last little clue regarding the mystery location of yesterday’s post. And the clue is Moon Carrots.
That’s right, Moon Carrots, or Seseli Gummiferum if you like the Latin names of plants. My Saturday coastal location was one of only six places in the entire country where these weird nobbly, bobbly little plants are known to blossom!
Does that help? Perhaps. Perhaps not. But I bet you’re all going to google Moon Carrots now 😉
Anyway, part of the reason Moon Carrots came to mind is that I came across this video on the Clarity YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i0-ASamUovA&t=58s
It’s a simple, easy and fun little tutorial using some of our elegant Allium stamps and our elegant Gilding Flakes. And, there was just something about the vague shape of an allium that reminded me of Moon Carrots. Maybe that fact that they are both quite tall, big round heads made up of a cluster of individual strands. You tell me? Do you see a similarity? Let me know in the comments.
Anyway, it’s a great little video. It’s elegant in its simplicity and the end result is a striking, high-contrast, six-panel design with a little strip under the bottom. Really cool. It’s the kind of thing you’d hang on the wall rather than send as a card, and has this really opulent, fine art feel about it. Oh yeah, and there’s 20% OFF everything you need to create this delightful design on your own. So check out our offer page, here!
So, why not watch, enjoy and reproduce yourself. Just don’t try to eat Moon Carrots as a healthy snack, I don’t think it’s a vegetable…
Well, that’s all from me then. Over and out.
