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.

Get your sunglasses out!

Isn't it lovely to be able to say that and mean it?  Finally the weather has changed and so has my wardrobe.  I did the mammoth task of changing my wardrobe over to my summer clothes, not a job I enjoy but I'm happy to have all my colourful clothes hanging in my wardrobe.

Well the title doesn't just relate to the current climate, it is a tad on the psychedelic side.

For this card I used:

All of these are available at Bee Crafty

To start with I spritzed some of my mica ink for the background.  After it had dried I stamped on TV hugs and memories.  I then used peacock feathers distress ink to dust over the circles stencil then barn door to dust around the outside and create the ground for TV girl to sit.  To add a bit more texture i stamped in red ink using the bubbles stamp.  I love the way the mica pops up in random places.  

I'm off to open up my journal and finish a page that I started the other night so I guess I will need sunglasses for myself by the time I've finished.

That's it for today folks.  I hope you have a fab weekend wether you are crafting or in the sunshine.

Crafty hugs,
