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.

Hi folks, yes dotty by name and dotty by nature! This is weekly my blog post for Bee Crafty. If you have not been fortunate enough to drop by at their stand at Ally Pally this weekend then head over to their online shop by clicking on the above link. This week sees the release of Bee Crafty's new Yuletide collection so if you are being exceedingly organised you will be able to get cracking with your christmas creations.


My post this week is not Christmassy at all although I think the same technique could be adapted to give a christmas bauble effect.

For this card I have used:

I made my own mask for this using a piece of chipboard and cutting out a small circle. I then sponged on my dots using spun sugar, seedless preserves and bundled sage distress inks. With the image stamped three times in three different inks I added liquid pearls, a smidge of glitter and garnished with a sentiment and ribbon.


If you are at Ally Pally don't forget to stop by at the Bee Crafty stand and give Bev and her team a hello. There are so many fabulous stamp images and sentiments. I bet you can't walk away without a handful!

Happy crafting!


Crafty hugs,

Clare x x x
