Air dry clay

Hi everyone, No posts from me since before Christmas, so Happy New Year to you! Life's been very hectic, starting back at work in Dec, lots of Christmas activities but not much crafting got done. 

These are pics of projects featured in the January issue of Making Cards magazine. They were submitted last summer, so I'd almost forgotten about them!

They are both made using Martha Stewart air dry clay - lovely to work with. The first sample has hand rolled roses, with the leaves & butterflies made using moulds. The second sample all the embellishments were made using moulds. Everything was painted with Cosmic Shimmer watercolours, also used for stamping the background and central panels. 

The curls are tiny strips of vellum curled over the scissors & fixed in place with Pinflair. 

I really enjoyed working with the clay, it's easy to mould & add colour, either during the creation process or after it dries. And unlike other clays, it is feather light when it dries, a great plus for postage!! 

Thanks for stopping by
