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 - You are a star!

Good morning bloggers and happy weekend to you all. I'm here today with a little bit of Bee Crafty.

Now slapped wrists for me because it is Halloween and I am extremely guilty of not making anything from the fabulous All Hallows collection. I have unfortunately had half term lurgy and spent most of my week wrapped in a duvet with pills and potions galore, honey and lemon and boxes of tissues not far from my side. However I am going to share with you a recent card I made from the Inspired by Banksy collection



For this card I used:

Greatness girl stamp

Inkables star template


Embossing powder

White wax crayon



To start I stamped the main image and heat embossed. With the star template I traced around the star with a white wax crayon.

Then the fun part! Sprinkle those fabulous little pots of brusho colours over the project, spritz with water and watch the colour explosion.

Once dried, with an old paint brush, I painted bleach inside some of the empty spaces inside the image to lift away the colour.



Thank you for taking the time to stop by today.


Happy crafting,

Clare x x x
