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.

Summertime flowers

Hello fellow bloggers. I hope you have all had a good week? Still not too sure about mine. I finally managed to make into the cellar to start creating my crafty space and ended up nearly knocking myself out! After clearing one side of the cellar I whacked my head on the entrance door and have ended up with a huge lump on my head and a touch of concussion! Needless to say when I venture back in I shall indeed be wearing a helmet.

Here is my Bee Crafty make for this week.

 

For this card I have used:

BEAUtanicals leaves stamps

Wordage sunshine, freedom & flower stamps

Distress inks

BEAUtanicals cow parsley (flower stems)

Liquid pearls

 

First of all I stamped the leaves masking off the previous leaf so there was no overstamp. I also stamped the sentiment and heat embossed the stamping with black powder. Using inks I coloured in the flowers. I stamped the smaller leaf and embossed with clear ep. I applied glossy accents to the flower and set it aside to dry. A while later I blended in distress inks over the background and added some liquid pearls to the white leaves.
