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

Clare DT - Greatness Girl and distressed stars

It's the weekend, which allows most of us to kick back and allow ourselves some crafty time. Being off school this week I have been fortunate enough to have lots of creative time.

I'm here today with my Bee Crafty blog for this week. This weeks blog has a bit of an American theme.



For this card I used:

Banksy inspired Greatness Girl

Backdrop borders Distressed stars

Dylusions ink London blue

Dylusions Paint Post box red

Embossing powder

To make this card I brushed some post box red paint to make the stripes. Once dried I sprayed the top of the card with London blue ink and let it run down the middle of the card.

After it had dried completely i was able to stamp the image and the border then heat emboss with clear embossing powder.


Wishing you all a wonderful weekend. Got lots of ideas rumbling around in the old grey matter but I'm back to work on Monday so i guess i'd better jot them down for a later date or I may just sneek a final few crafty hours before monday.


Crafty hugs,

Clare x x x
