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.

Clare DT - Greatness

Happy Sunday Bloggers, it's my turn to blog for Bee Crafty. Today i am sharing with you a little something from the Inspired by Banksy collection. A couple of weeks ago I had a little play with some shaving foam to make some backgrounds.


To make this card i used:

Inspired by Banksy - Greatness words

Dylusion inks

Backdrop stamp - Crackle paint

Wink of stella pen

Shaving foam





The background was prepared in advance of stamping so that it was dry enough to enable stamping and heat embossing. I am hoping to do a step by step tutorial for this soon. I stamped the greatness words onto my background and heat embossed with clear powder.

I added some shimmer to my swirls using a wink of stella brush. The backdrop stamp was stamped onto some pink card to add another layer.



Thank you for popping over for a look today. If you have liked looking at my blog today remember to add yourself as a follower. I love to hear your comments so feel free to drop one below.


Happy Crafting,
