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 a teaching assistant, looking after my son, daughter and hubby Gary. Not forgetting our two mad springer spaniels, Suzi and Jess.

Frosty Double Daisy

Hello fellow crafters, it's Clare here with more winter ideas. I didn't go for the obvious choice of stamps on this one. I chose one of my favourite stamps, Double Daisy and decided to give it a touch of winter.

For this card I used:
 

 

First of all I stamped Double Daisy and the sentiment in Oak House Studios wine pigment ink pad and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. I then randomly went over the leaves of the double Daisy with a white wax crayon to cause a resist to create a frosty effect. Out came the lovely inks in a bottle and I continued to paint the Daisy with my red shades. Once Daisy had been painted I decided I wanted a splash of colour behind it. I mixed my green colours to create a wash for behind the flower. Finally after matting and layering I added a smattering of glitter to complete a frosty finish.

 

 

Good luck with your winter challenges. There is still time to get your entries in and be in with a chance of a wonderful prize.

 

Happy crafting,

Clare x x x
