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.

Butterfly flutter by

Hello all, I hope you are all well today and in good crafty spirit? I'm here today with my DT post for A Sprinkle of Imagination. Today I have used some of my favourite butterfly stamps from Finnabair Don't forget to fly set.


I painted an A5 piece of card using Dina Wakely heavy body acrylic paints turquoise and white. Adding some spots of magenta and lime. I pressed on some circles with a spray lid using white and night. Doodles added using black and white Posca paint pens.

I stamped the large and small butterfly onto my sheet and cut out carefully. I also stamped the sentiment and cut out.


I stitched the white base of my card onto some black card and mounted a rectangular piece of my painted background onto some black.


I finally added some black onyx liquid pearls to the card.

Thank you for stopping by today, I hope your day is a crafty one wherever you may be!
