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 an outreach support worker, looking after my son, daughter, foster son and hubby. Not forgetting our gorgeous springer spaniel, Suzi.

Clare DT - Banksy inspired, Balloon Girl

Happy sunny Sunday morning. It's me again with my Weekly Bee Crafty spot. This week I'm back with some more Banksy.




For this card i used:

Banksy inspired balloon girl

Backdrop stamp - Crackle paint

Backdrop stamp - Bubble wrap positive

Wordage - Dreams come true


Inkables template - metalwork alpha

Distress inks

A wink of stella clear pen

Liquid pearls



I started off by covering the card in salt and carefully drawing a swirl in the salt, i also brushed away some of the salt and used some rock salt in random areas. After that i sprinkled the brushos and spritzed with water.


Once dry I removed the salt and stenciled in weathered wood the metalwork alpha mask. I stamped the balloon girl over the swirl and then the backdrop stamps in various different areas.


I stamped the sentiment in the corner and added some liquid pearls to the swirl. I added a little detail to the balloon girl using a wink of stella pen.


I would like to enter this card into the following challenge : Crafting cafe April challenge Flights of Fancy
