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.

Jofy Stamps, Distress inks with acrylic

Just a little blog post from me today.  I made a friendship card for a friend at work and decided to try something a little different.

I started by blending my background inks onto my card. After I stamped my image and painted in the flowers and butterfly.  I sprinkled a little water over my inky background and then applied some  acrylic paint through a stencil.  I finally blended  some distress ink around the edge of the card so that it caught on some of the painted edges.

Thank you for taking the time to read my blog post.  I love to hear your comments x x x
