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 a teaching assistant, looking after my son, daughter and hubby Gary. Not forgetting our two mad springer spaniels, Suzi and Jess.

Clare DT - Banksy inspired, Balloon Girl

Happy sunny Sunday morning. It's me again with my Weekly Bee Crafty spot. This week I'm back with some more Banksy.

 

 

 

For this card i used:

Banksy inspired balloon girl

Backdrop stamp - Crackle paint

Backdrop stamp - Bubble wrap positive

Wordage - Dreams come true

Brushos

Inkables template - metalwork alpha

Distress inks

A wink of stella clear pen

Liquid pearls

Salt


 

I started off by covering the card in salt and carefully drawing a swirl in the salt, i also brushed away some of the salt and used some rock salt in random areas. After that i sprinkled the brushos and spritzed with water.

 

Once dry I removed the salt and stenciled in weathered wood the metalwork alpha mask. I stamped the balloon girl over the swirl and then the backdrop stamps in various different areas.

 

I stamped the sentiment in the corner and added some liquid pearls to the swirl. I added a little detail to the balloon girl using a wink of stella pen.
