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.

Hey Mr Snowman!

I'm over on the Topflight Stamps Blog today!.   The weather in the UK is certainly on the turn, with a light dusting of snow here and there!  So today I have brought to you my own zingy colourful snowman.



A few weeks back I pulled some prints from my gelli plate and had some clean up pages that I felt the need to keep.  Using Carabelle Studios Snowman set I stamped my snowman onto the printed page.



I masked off the snowman and stamped the houses & Christmas lights into the background.  Using distress oxide inks I used the snowflake stamp and some other stamps to build up some more layers.  I added a little shading around Mr Snowman, using a black inktense pencil, to make him pop!


I cut a clean piece of card as some white snowy ground for my snowman to sit and attached it over the printed card.  From some pink card stock I die cut the sentiment 'Celebrate' and attached.



Happy crafting,

Clare.
