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.

Looking on the bright side!

Hi there bloggers it's Clare and I'm here with my weekly spot at Bee Crafty. Over the last few weeks I've seen some fabulous, bright colour work so I decided to have ago myself and this is what I achieved.


For this card I used:

Beautanicals cow parsley stamp

Inspired by Banksy balloon girl stamp

Beautanicals branches stamps

Beautanicals ferns stamps

Wordage shoot for the moon stamp

Distress inks

Clear embossing powder

Liquid pearls



To make this card I Started by stamping the balloon girl and beautanicals stamps in watermark ink then embossed with clear embossing powder. After that I masked off a moon and inked in the background using salty ocean, picked raspberry and Crushed olive. I removed the moon mask and inked in with squeezed lemonade. The sentiment was stamped in black ink and again heat embossed with clear embossing powder. To finish I added my favourite liquid pearls.




Thank you for coming over and having a look. I love to hear your comments so feel free to feedback below.
