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.

Happy Bank Holiday

Hi it's Clare here with my weekly blog for Bee Crafty. My card this week is a bit on the blue side although it doesn't reflect my mood. I still have a couple of weeks off to enjoy and it's my birthday on Friday (not sure if I should be happy about that another year older and wiser....... Definitely older, not sure about the wiser part).

For this card I have used :
Beautanicals dandelion stamp
Wordage minis, special thoughts
Distress inks
Liquid pearls
Memento black ink
Glitter from stash

I started off by masking my card and stamping with clear watermark ink and heat embossing with clear ep. Then I brushed on my blue background with distress inks. After that I stamped the dandelion in black. Finally I added some liquid pearls and some glitter and then a few more liquid pearls on their own.
Bee Crafty have just launched a super new range of Halloween stamps aptly named 'All Hallows' you can check them out by clicking on the above link.
That's me for today I'm off to try out my fabby new All Hallows' stamps. Thanks for taking the time to look at my blog all comments and new followers welcome.
