Clarice Cliff style

I've been a big fan of Clarice Cliff's work for many years and would love to own one of her ceramic pieces, but the closest I have come so far is a set of Woodware stamps that I've had for several years. They are not original Clarice Cliff designs - there are probably all sorts of copyright issues that stop them from doing that - but are a tribute to her work, designed by the very talented Francoise Read.

Today I've used the stamps to make a very CAS New Home card, choosing Promarkers in typical Clarice Cliff colours for the image, which I've raised slightly on foam pads.

And I have a useful tip for you - when resting your chin in your hand to think about where to position an image, don't rest your elbow on an open black ink pad.

  5. I love Clarice too, this is a fab card. I've been stitching a very simple design based on her work for about 10 years now! One day I will get it finished.
