About Me

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.

Gold finger.........

Infact inky and gold fingers.  Well to be truthful I wasn't intending on blogging against soon but my fidgety finger and crafty hands have been busy.  I have been putting together the finishing touches to my daughters birthday card and decided to try out a new stamp that I haven't used yet.

I used some cs mist a while ago and just keep a stash ready for such occasions (a handy hint from my auntie) and just stamped on the trees using inkylicious birch trees stamp.

Then using my distress inks I created a rocky background.  I embossed the card itself and it then received and ink dusting and some gold mica smudged in (hence the gold fingers).

I added a bit of ribbon to the side of the card but apart from the gold I have added no bling!  I think I am going to enjoy using this stamp and have already got some more ideas brewing for using this in a different style.

Please leave a comment below I love hearing from you all.

Nighty night. 

Big hugs Clare x x x x x
