About Me

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 Slide & Bubble with Dylusions

It's the weekend hurrah. I've only worked for three days this week but I for one was so glad to see the weekend arrive. I'm here today with my Bee Crafty slot and I have quite a selection of recent makes to blog I couldn't decide! So I decided to share with you a little something I made a while ago whilst playing with my Gelli Plate.


For this project I used:

Dylusion paints :- Bubblegum pink, Vibrant turquoise, Lemon Zest, Squeezed orange

Inspired by Banksy- slide and bubble

Wordage - Live with no excuses

Inkable templates :


Metalwork alpha

Alternative circles


I started off by tearing some scrap paper into circles and tearing a hole in the middle. One at a time I brayered each colour onto the Gelli plate and placed the torn circles onto the plate.

When I applied the new colour the torn circle was put into a slightly different position so that some of the previous colour would peep through. I continued this with the all the colours until I was happy with my print.

When the paint was dried I used the Harlequin and metalwork alpha stencil and blended through some black distress ink.

Horizontally across the card I created my slide using the alternative bubbles stencil and some white dylusions paint. The sentiment and bubble girl was stamped using black ink.
