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 - Beautanicals Dandelion

Good morning fellow bloggers. I have awoken to a glorious morning, I hope the sun is shining where you are? Here I am again with another card made using Bee Crafty stamps.


For this card i used:

Beautanicals - Dandelions stamp

Wordadge - Joy is a flower

Liquid pearls



I started off by brayering the background colour onto the card, once I had acheived my desired background I stamped the dandelion onto the card in a smokey grey ink and continued to stamp in various places, without re-inking, so that the dandelions appeared lighter in colour.

Again with the Dandelion I stamped around in moss green in the same manner. In the foreground I stampecd with a black ink pad.

Finally I added some liquid pearls and stickles for some dimension, shimmer and sparkle.
