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.

Meet our Vera

Well it's that time of the week again, and it's my weekly blog for Bee Crafty.  They have just launched their fantastic new range of Fashionettes and I would like to introduce you to Vera.

For this tag I have used:

Davinchi script
Inkables wire fence
Dylusion postbox red and white spray
Distress inks

I sprayed my tag with dylusions post box red then I laid the wire fence Inkables mask over the top, spritzed with water and blotted.  Then I laid the mask over at a different angle and sprayed with the white ink and left to dry.  On a separate piece of card I stamped Vera and coloured in with my promarkers. I cut her out and then went over her hair with a Sakura glaze pen.  I went back to my tag and added the script stamp at different angles and went around the edges with distress inks.  I put vera on the tag using pva glue and then gave an extra outline to create a shadow.  

I stamped the sentiment stamp and then snipped it down so that I had 'perfect 10'.  Finally I decorated with a flower, liquid pearls and ribbon.

Don't forget to pop over to Bee Crafty to check out the full range.

Have a happy crafty bank holiday weekend.
