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.

Lemon and lime swirls with shaving foam

Hi bloggers I'm back again. Well with it being the holidays I've had a little more time to experiment and there was plenty of fun had whilst trying out my latest experiment.


I would like to enter this card into the following challenge: Lavinia Stamps challenge # 4 Lemon and Lime

To make this card I started off with shaving foam and dripped my lemon and lime shades of dylusions into the shaving foam and swirled a pokey tool around to make my background. I made a selection of these. Some of which im sure will appear on here at another date.


I stamped using a selection of Lavinia stamps and coloured the main image using a twinkling h2o's and a wink of stella pen.




That's it from me today but i'll be back again soon with some more crafty mayhem.


Happy crafting,


Clare x x x
