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.

Put a stamp on it - Mid Month inspiration

Hi Folks,  I haven't been around for a while,  but I'm back today to share with you a little mid month inspiration for this months Mixed Media Monthly Challenge.

Working in my Dina Wakley Mixed Media journal, along with Dylusions-Cherry Pie & White Linen paint I used Tim Holtz tiles stencil to build up the layers of my tiled background.  Using a white pigment ink pad and smokey grey Versafine ink pad, I added some leaf stamps from the Carabelle 

I splattered some of the Cherry Pie and white paint onto the page, drying between each colour change.  I also did a little mark making using an old gift card and some old bottle tops.

I stamped the main leaf image on the centre of the page and heat embossed with some clear embossing powder.  I gave the leaves some shimmer using a wink of Stella pen and dotted around some pearlescent sequins.  Just a simple sentiment for a simple page 'Beautiful' from one of Tim Holtz chit chat ideology books.

Thank you for visiting today.  I always look forward to reading your comments.  You still have until the end of the month to 'Put a stamp on it'. Head over to MMMC blog, check out the rules and post your entry.
