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.

I'm forever blowing bubbles!

Hello folks I'm back again with my Bee Crafty blogspot.  I know, I'm sorry I just can't help myself when it comes to these bubbles but you know how one project inspires another? Well this is one of those.

For this card I used:

Usually I start by inking my background first but today I started by stamping the Banksy bubbles stamp and the sentiment first.  After that I taped down my Inkables circles stencils and dusted peacock feathers, picked raspberry and mustard seed over the stencil in random places.  Th colours of course blended together to make new colours.  After that I dragged some clear texture paste over the stencil.   

A while later when the paste had dried I dusted around the edge with seedless preserves and added some white curves to the bubbles.

Starting to feel a little excited as the holidays are nearly here.  One more week and no more work til September which means I can get cracking with my new craft room and some obligatory holiday crafting.

Hope you are having a fab weekend.

Crafty hugs,
