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.

My first official Bee Crafty Blog! (Get me) lol

Hi everyone this is my first official blog for  Bee Crafty. I was absolutely thrilled when Bev contacted me as I really enjoy crafting with these amazing stamps, the quality is brilliant! I was inspired by the   'Inspired by Banksy' range of stamps. I have really enjoyed letting my creativity run wild.

For this card I have used:

I made a mask out of some scrap paper (junk mail comes in handy for this, I keep a pile next to my craft mat so i can clean off stamps after inking or just off load ink from brushes or blenders) and used peacock feathers through the circles mask.  I then changed the paper mask over so that I could blush and blend my ground with peeled paint.  I stamped the girl in black ink and then stamped the balloon in picked raspberry.  I lightly brushed over the sky with dusty Concorde and edged the card all the way around with my blender with picked raspberry. Finally I stamped on the large life wordage stamp.

I hope you have enjoyed looking at this post.  Don't forget all of the items used for this are available from Bee Crafty .  I really look forward to hearing your comments.

Crafty hugs,

Clare x x x
