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- Greatness words

Good morning all. It's a wonderful sunny morning in Torquay today which has woken me up this morning after an exciting day at the NEC yesterday. I had a wonderful day and of course I was finally able to visit Bee Crafty's Bev Tonks, after nearly 12 months of being on the design team.

If you are fortunate enough to go to the NEC today go and see Bee Crafty. There are the fabulous new Alisa Kay designs stamps and a few other goodies which have not as yet been launched onto the website


Well in true blue peter style here's one I made earlier!


For this card I used:

Inspired by Banksy - Greatness words

Inspired by davinci - Da Vinci script

Backdrop stamps - Bark positive

Embossing powder


Rock salt





To make this card I stamped the greatness words onto a a piece of card and heat embossed with embossing powder.


Before I sprinkled my brushos onto the card I arranged some rock salt around the sentiment. Salt is a great team mate of brusho, it acts as a resist on the card. This created my white splashy areas.


So I sprinkled the brushos an spritzed with water. After that i spritzed my script stamp with water and stamped in random areas. Finally with a grey ink pad I stamped the bark stamp a few times on the page.
