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.

Football is on love..........thats nice, I'm crafting!

Yes the football is on, again so it's craft o'clock .  Of course I'd like our lads to win but I'm not holding my breath due to the amount of chuntering coming from the front room.  Anyway I thought I would have another look and dig out some stamps that it haven't used yet (criminal) but I am positive that I am not the only guilty culprit.

I brushed my background using a mixture of blues and greens distress inks and mask from my stash.  

I stamped using My Lavinia stamps the foliage was stamped using a green and egg plant and the mermaid and sentiment was stamped using black.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenge Lavinia Stamps Challenge # 6 ‘ Add Some Beads or Gems ’

Finally I added liquid pearls, glitter, some more liquid pearls and some gems.

You never know with all this football on I may even get to use all of my new stamps and if I do that I'll have to invest in some new ones ;-)

Crafty hugs,
