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.

Love is in the air, Bee Crafty Fleur & Freddie

Happy Sunday my lovelies. I'm back with the adorable Bee Crafty couple, Fleur and Freddie and a little technique I recently found whilst flicking through one of my crafty mags.

 

 

 

For these cards I used:
 
 

I started off by stamping my image and painting the heart with distress inks. As the background is going to be quite vibrant I decided to leave my loving couple plain and covered them in glossy accents.

 

 

Once the glossy accents were dry I inked my template with distress inks and lightly spritzed them with water so the inks would blend. I then applied my template to the card with a sheet of paper over the top and brayer end so the ink would transfer onto the card.

 
 

 

Thank you for taking the time to look at my blog. I love to hear your comments.

 

Happy crafting,

Clare x x x
