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.

Clare DT - Leafy Butterflies

Hi there it's time for a Bee Crafty moment and this week I chosen to show you a crafty make with a feminine touch just for Mother's Day.


For this card I used:

BEAUTanicals - Maple outline

Wordage - Family masterpiece

Inkables template - basket weave

Inkables template - Alternative circles

Distress inks

Liquid pearls

Black & white pen from stash



To make this card I blended my chosen distress inks over a masked piece of card to leave a white area at the bottom.


On some spare card I blended the same inks and then stamped the maple outline stamp over the top. I fussy cut these and put to one side.


Through the basket weave template I inked some black soot and through the circles I blended some spiced marmalade.


I used the small maple outline stamp to make my baby butterflies and added some doodles through the middle for the body.


After that I stamped on the sentiment in black ink. I then applied my butterfly wings and once again added some doodling for the large butterfly's body.


To finish off I added some more doodles to the stencil and some liquid pearls.
