About Me

My photo
Hi I'm Clare, I live in the South West of England in the seaside town of Torquay. I adore playing with inks, paints and generally getting messy. It is the calm place which fits in between my hectic life whilst working as a teaching assistant, looking after my son, daughter and hubby Gary. Not forgetting our two mad springer spaniels, Suzi and Jess.

I am so proud to be designing for...........

Last week I heard from the lovely Lynnda at Oak House Studios and was very excited to find that she has invited me onto her design team.  This means that I get to experiment with the lovely colour chemistry ink sprays, pads and super stamps.  I was even more excited when I arrived home today to find a box full of goodies to start me on my way.

This months challenge is something blue.  Here is my first contribution to this months colour themed challenge.

First I spritzed the card with Spode blue and pearly silver ink sprays, this instantly transformed the card into a beautiful pearlescent background.  I then sponged with my Sea Blue ink pad through a stencil and added some detail with a white pen from my stash.

  On a separate piece of card I stamped and heart embossed  the butterfly from the triple butterfly stamp set with silver detail embossing powder. After that I fussy cut out the butterfly and then spritzed with the Spode blue.

Returning to the background I stamped the sentiment from the set and then randomly stamped English garden words in sea blue.

All of these amazing stamps and inks are available here at http://www.oakhousestudio.com

That's a mid week blog from me.  I hope that you are all good out there.  Am looking forward to the weekend so I can raid my new crafting goodies and start my next creation.

Crafty hugs,

Clare x x x
