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.

Tracey Scott New Stamps from Paperartsy - Full Reveal

Hi folks I'm here today to share with you the delightful new stamps & stencils, designed by Tracey Scott and brought to you from Paperartsy.

In this new release there are 3 new stamps sets and 3 new stencils.  I chose to work with sets ETS24 & ETS25 along with stencils PS125 & PS126.

I started off by painting a 12 x 12 canvas board using my chosen colours of Paperartsy Fresco paint.

I added in some stencilling and stamping using both paint and an archival ink pad.  Whilst doing this i was loosely plotting where my trailing blooms where going to be positioned.

Using some old, textured wallpaper I added more depth to my piece, continuing with the colour theme that I'd chosen.

Lots more stamping now, I'm gradually building up my layers that will be seen poking up from behind my blooms.

I stamped the flowers, cut them out and painted them all individually using Paperartsy Fresco colours: Tangerine Twist, Lemon Zest, Cerise, Bourgonvillia & a splash of Carribean Sea to tie in with the background colours.  I also added some extra splashes to the flowers along with some pearly dots.

I added some white pen doodles to the stencilling, also here and there on the background before layering the flowers, along with the foliage from my stash, using a silicone gel.

Around the darker edge I added some gold stamping using the bubbles stamps (I Love that Stamp!).  All I need to do now is to get a deep box frame for my canvas to be displayed.

Thank you for taking the time to stop by today. I love hearing from my followers and love to read the comments.

Happy Crafting,

Clare xxx


  1. Wow! Fabulous Clare. Wonderful colours and layers. Hoping that you make a good recovery. Xx

  2. In this manner my colleague Wesley Virgin's biography begins with this SHOCKING and controversial video.

    Wesley was in the military-and shortly after leaving-he revealed hidden, "MIND CONTROL" secrets that the CIA and others used to get everything they want.

    These are the same tactics many celebrities (especially those who "come out of nothing") and elite business people used to become rich and famous.

    You probably know how you utilize only 10% of your brain.

    Really, that's because the majority of your BRAINPOWER is UNCONSCIOUS.

    Perhaps this expression has even taken place INSIDE OF YOUR very own head... as it did in my good friend Wesley Virgin's head about 7 years back, while driving an unlicensed, beat-up garbage bucket of a car without a driver's license and $3.20 in his bank account.

    "I'm so fed up with living paycheck to paycheck! Why can't I turn myself successful?"

    You took part in those conversations, right?

    Your very own success story is going to happen. Go and take a leap of faith in YOURSELF.


  3. anyone know what the name of the flower stamp is?
