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.

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!
