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.

The Midas touch!

Hi folks, I'm back again with my weekly blog for Bee Crafty, I decided that it's been far too long since I last used my guilding flakes so they have come off the shelf for an airing.

For this card I have used

Guilding flakes from my stash
Liquid pearls 

First of all I put a circular mask to make a moon and brushed over my card using peacock feathers distress ink, then I used the Inkables mask to create my dotty sky.  After that I made a mask and inked in some land.  I stamped the children with adhesive and applied the guilding flakes.  I stamped on the sentiment which I decorated with liquid pearls and glitter.  Finally I used distress inks around the edge and then added some bronze mica powder

Well I hope the sun is shining wherever you may be?  After the storms we have had this weekend it would be nice to see summer again.

I am having a rare treat and hubby is taking us all put for a Sunday roast today so I guess that can only mean one thing............more time for crafting later instead of cooking it myself. :-)

Enjoy your Sunday folks,

Bing hugs
