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 - Delight

It is the weekend again and that can only mean one thing, my Bee Crafty cap is well and truly on and with me I am bringing a new stamp from the fantasy and fables collection.


For this card I used:

Fantasy and fables - Delight

Backdrop borders - Splater swirl

Dylusions inks

Liquid pearls


Wink of Stella clear pen



I made the background using shaving foam and ink, swirling the colours around until I acheived my desired pattern. I like to make batches of backgrounds when I use this technique. Then some simple stamping with the gorgeous new delight stamp. I stamped the splatter swirl onto a separate piece of card to layer the image. I added some liquid pearls and stickles then used the clear wink of stella brush over some of the colourful swirls.


Thank you for popping over to see me. My apologies for a very brief blog, I am afraid I have spent more time at work this week then I have at home. The school holidays are nearing and I for one am ready for a rest. Still a couple more weeks to go then I shall be up to date with the housework and plenty of crafty time on my hands.


Happy crafting,
