There are Always Flowers by Donna Gray


Hi everyone,

Donna here today with another PaperArtsy Infusions background for you.








What to do:


Use a piece of Strathmore mixed media paper and sprinkle a few grains of the Infusions, spritz with water and dry with a heat gun.

Ink up the Kaisercraft script stamp with Potting Soil Archival ink and randomly stamp on the background to provide interest.

Use some of the wonderful Tim Holtz wildflower stamps with black Archival ink as the main focal point of the card.

The butterfly (best butterfly stamp ever) was made by stamping on a scrap of Gelli print paper and the sentiment was made by once again stamping with Potting Soil ink and then colouring with Distress inks, both were fussy cut out and adhered to the card.

Mount onto black card and then white cardstock and there you have a grungy, flowery card ;)



Supplies Used: 




Hope you like it

  11. Wow, this is gorgeous, I love your background Donna, all those scrummy brown, green and blue tones from the fusions and the script stamping just my thing. I love how they instantly give a vintage look, and yet the minimalist black stamping is quite modern. A true fusion which is stunning! Hugs Debs xx
