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.

Surfs up!

You know when you get one of those ideas in your head and you can't shift it?  Well that happened to me , it's my cousins birthday at the weekend and he loves surfing.  Being as I have no surf based stamps out came the sketch pad.

I sketched a sideways shillouette of a surfer and coloured it in with a black promarker.  Here comes the techy bit!  I scanned in my image to my iPad, adjusted the size and printed on to card.

  I then inked on my background, stamped some grasses and penned in a couple of wonky fences :-)

I stamped the sentiment onto a circle  and added to the card and to add some shimmering waves I used some liquid pearls.

A bit of an unexpected blog but was so pleased with the outcome that I wanted to share

Happy crafting,
