Hi I'm Clare, and as you can probably tell by my blog name I love to craft. It is a hobby of mine which I fit in my hectic life whilst working as a teaching assistant in a primary school, looking after my son, daughter and hubby Gary. Not forgetting our two mad springer spaniels, Suzi and Jess.

Another 40th blog

I've been longing to craft all week but unfortunately my back has been excruciating and instead of crafting I've been looking at everyone's fabulous work. On facebook I've seen some fabulous work using Brushos and Swirls. Brushos are now available at Bee Crafty.

Hermine Koster does some fabulous work with Brushos and the card featured in the link inspired me to have a go. So tonight dosed up with meds I braved it into the craft room.

 

I used a slightly different technique to Hermine. I used salt on the card to mask off and created the swirl pattern actually in the salt before adding the brushos.

 

I then used stencils to add some further interest to the background. I stamped my main image and then some inkylicious rain drops and water drops and finally added some glossy accents.

 

 

Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog. Please feel free to leave a comment and if you fancy following don't forget to click on the follow link above.

 

Happy crafting,
