About Me

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.

Clare DT - Banksy inspired ' Swing'

Hi folks its me again with my weekly Bee Crafty blog. Just a quick little blog from me this week and the inspiration came from a fellow crafter Eileen Godwin. She produced a fabulous you tube video which gives you a very detailed how to. So here is my take on this fabulous technique.



For this card I used:

Banksy inspired - Swing

Wordage - Never regret


Perfect pearls mists

Cling film (yes cling film)



I started off by spraying a piece of cling film and sprinkling with my Brushos. I put my glossy card onto the cling film and wrapped it up, turned it over and squished the cling film around. I left it for about ten minutes.

After the ten minutes were up I unwrapped the card and then added another brusho colour to the top and spritzed with water.

Once dried I was able to stamp my image and add finely cut black strips of card to form my sections. I stamped the sentiment onto a separate piece of card which I then chopped up, applied some distress ink and glued onto the card.
