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 - Greatness

Happy Sunday Bloggers, it's my turn to blog for Bee Crafty. Today i am sharing with you a little something from the Inspired by Banksy collection. A couple of weeks ago I had a little play with some shaving foam to make some backgrounds.


To make this card i used:

Inspired by Banksy - Greatness words

Dylusion inks

Backdrop stamp - Crackle paint

Wink of stella pen

Shaving foam





The background was prepared in advance of stamping so that it was dry enough to enable stamping and heat embossing. I am hoping to do a step by step tutorial for this soon. I stamped the greatness words onto my background and heat embossed with clear powder.

I added some shimmer to my swirls using a wink of stella brush. The backdrop stamp was stamped onto some pink card to add another layer.



Thank you for popping over for a look today. If you have liked looking at my blog today remember to add yourself as a follower. I love to hear your comments so feel free to drop one below.
