Hello hello! Grace here.
I hope this finds you well, safe, and enjoying your Sunday.
We are joined this weekend by a talented member of our design team. You’ve likely seen her beautiful samples all over our TV shows and social media groups. It’s the one and only Shelagh Metselaar!
Shelagh has kindly put together a step-by-step blog for us.

Step 1. Cut the Clarity A5 Theuva card in half to form an A6 card.
Step 2. Attach Clarity low tack tape on all four sides, masking off approximately 1/2 centimetres to create a border.
Step 3. Pencil in two straight lines from top to bottom using a Pergamano ruler.
Step 4. Add some random horizontal lines, then trace them all with a black Micron pen.
Step 5. Isolate each cell with sticky notes (or masking tape) and stamp the main image from Tina’s Celebrate Your Day in the uncovered void.
Step 6. Repeat until all areas are filled.
Step 7. Colour the flowers with Polychromos, beginning with 131 – Medium Flesh.
Step 8. Continue with 129 – Pink Madder.
Step 9. 125 – Middle Purple Pink
Step 10. Then 168 – Earth Green Yellowish, and 165 – Juniper Green on the leaves.
Step 11. Lastly, colour all remaining exposed areas of the petals with 102 – Cream
Step 12. Outline the perimeter of the stamped edges with a black Micron pen – Straight lines or wavy lines – the choice is yours!
Step 13. Mat and layer onto your chosen Clarity Designer Topper from Toscana set, black card and finally attach to the Clarity card blank. Trim. Your project is complete!
