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 - 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.
