I Heart Wings by Donna Gray

Hello everyone, 

Donna here today sharing a tag I made using the beautiful angel stamp from Carabelle Studio. It really is a pleasure colouring her in and I’ve also given her some heart shaped wings! 

Let me show you the background I made first:


and then I carved this stamp from Speedy-Carve:

Then you put it all together after a little colouring etc and you get this:

This Is What I Did: 


I had a size 8 tag on hand to mop up some brayering on wood I did. I always find these ‘mop up’ tags really lead to some interesting colour and pattern combinations. This was using Fresco paints. The paint was just applied randomly.

Taking an old credit card, I printed some random lines on the tag using surplus black paint I had.

Then take a DecoArt Media Mister colour of your choice, spray, allow to run down the tag. I love this effect!

Then I took one of the stamps from the new Prima, Finnabair set and randomly stamped over the tag using black Archival.

Next, stamp your lovely angel onto thick, white card and colour with ProMarkers.  

Take your newly carved stamp and stamp on another piece of thick, white card using Memento Brilliance ink.

I’ve added a little embellishment from my stash, the words are from Tim Holtz Small Talk sticker book and there you have it!

Supplies Used: 

Hope you like it
