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.

Back to Banksy

Good morning all.  I'm back again for my Sunday Bee Crafty blogspot.  I've got a couple of things to blog this week one of them being a quick little plaque that I made.  Firstly I've gone back to something that lead me to Bee Crafty.  Banksy inspired stamps!

For this card I have used:

I love this  Banksy inspired stamp, it is so versatile and it is great for male cards.  I brushed on a background of blue and green using the wire fence mask.  Leaving the mask in place I stamped the image through the mask.  I then used the bubble wrap stamp using various distress inks to frame him. Last of all I stamped the wordage stamp and embossed.

A while ago I bought some air dry clay and made several shaped tiles but not made anything with them.  This week I decided I would have a go and this is what happened.

For this project I used:
Guilding flakes

I just inked up my clay tile with distress inks.  I then stamped  with tacky glue the bark back drop stamp and rubbed in my guilding flakes.  I stamped the wordge stamp onto a die cut shape, used black embossing powders and then heat embossed.  I die cut and assembled a flower and foliage.  Finally I added some wire to hang.

I hope you have enjoyed looking at my blog post, if you have don't forget to add yourself as a follower.
I'm off now to get up to some more crafty mischief.

Happy crafting,

Big hugs,
Clare x x x 


  1. stunning altered art really do love what you have done x

  2. Love both of these, Clare.....the 'spotty' colours on the card are great and that's such a good idea with the clay. The little hanger is brilliant. Is there any way you can get your pics to enlarge when they're clicked on....would love to see them in close-up xx

    1. Not sure how I'd do that will look into it x x x

  3. These are gorgeous, love the sentiments and fabulous colours. To enlarge your photographs, whilst setting up your blog post and you have added your photograph click on it, it will turn blue and option will appear in blue, click on medium or large. I hope that helps.

  5. Great card and hanger! I really love the text on both!

  6. Clare your projects look amazing. Beautiful colours and I love the quote. You wanted the name of the die I had used and it was Tim Holtz tattered pinecone from Sizzix. Also the glitter is from his new distress glitters. PS- finally got blogger to connect followers with you! hurrah!!
