About Me

Nottinghamshire, United Kingdom
My name is Clare I live in Nottinghamshire and work in education supporting students as my full time job but like to make cards, craft and plan as a hobby. I have recently taken up arigurumi crochet, the perfect autumn/winter hobby. I have also decided after a number of years off to pick up my guitar and learn to play again so due to metal strings and crochet hooks the ends of my fingers are slowly toughening up.

I love this image by Saturated Canary it's called "My bite is worse than his bark".

I used some plain black paper for a background and then used a cutter to lace edge some rose printed paper to give more texture to my layering.
The little lady was coloured using Spectrum Noir FS1 only for her face and arms as I wanted the palest skin possible going for a classic pale vampire look and coloured her eyes GB2. The dress and hair were coloured with Spectrum Noir Red & Grey pens as below:

To embellish I used Creative Memories cutting tools to cut my oval layers after printing my sentiment. I also had some fabric flowers and hearts as below and used them to link the colours together.

I was pointed to a company called Dreamees run by Hayley an ex student of the school I work at and ordered these simple paper roses, shown below to complete my card. She also has rose blanks available for you to colour and make yourself along with a miriad of hand-drawn craft artwork made into CD's, stamps and accessories. Please check her out and tell her Clare at Camellia Cards sent you her way.

I'm really pleased with the end result and intend to enter into Black With 2's challenge Dominant Black with Red and White.

Thanks for calling by
