Clarity Feminine

I have wanted this fabulous Balloon stamp for a while and recently acquired it, so much beautiful detail quite Steampunk, so I decided to produce a Steampunk style mini handbag for the Clarity Stamps Feminine Challenge
I cut the bag on my Cricut then stamped the Clarity large and small lupins using clear embossing powder
Then coloured with Distress stains Iced Spruce, Peacock Feather & Rusty Hinge then placed newspaper and applied heat with an iron to remove the embossing powder assembled and then distressed the edges with Walnut Stain

The Clarity FIlligraphy Hot Air Balloon with Stazon Timber Brown and coloured with Promakers and Distress inks, Antique Linen and Walnut Stain


  1. Beautiful Jools, fab handbag.
