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.

A winters tale

How can we even contemplate winter with the glorious weather we have had today? I'm here with my Bee Crafty weekly spot and this week I have made a christmas card using some of their fabulous Yuletide collection. Of course there are quite a few new additions to this collection so pop on over to the online shop for a peep.


For this card I have used:
I stamped the christmas tree using clear embossing ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. After that I brushed on my background using shaded lilac and chipped sapphire. The sentiment was stamped with blue ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. I decided to add some stitching detail to the edges of the card using my white pen. Finally I added some snow flakes using liquid pearls and a smattering of glitter. I somehow think that snow is a long way off.
Thank you for taking the time to look at my post. I love to hear your comments.
Happy crafting,
Clare x x x x
