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 beyond the imperfections!

Hi it's Clare here and I'm back with my weekly Bee Crafty blog. I've gone a bit banksy this week, have a look and see what happened.

For this card I used

Banksy inspired ghetto blaster stamp

Wordage being happy stamp

Backdrop soapy bubbles stamp

Inkables template metalwork alpha

Distress inks




First of all I stamped the soapy bubbles in a grey ink, then over the top I sponged through the stencil faded jeans and peacock feathers. The sentiment and ghetto boy was stamped with black ink and then heat embossed with clear embossing powder. I stamped a mask of ghetto boy, cut it out and then stamped/masked him again in three different colours. To finish off I blended faded jeans around the outer edge of the card.


Thank you for taking the time to have a look at my blog, see you soon.


Happy crafting,

Clare x x x
