Well what an exciting week at That’s Crafty!, you will have seen yesterday that my team mate and bestest crafty friend Donna Gray has designed a range of stamps produced by That’s Crafty! As someone, myself, who cannot draw I am in awe of her designs and have had such fun playing with a couple of sets.
I have made a couple of cards and I have combined them with other stamps from my collection.
Here’s What I Did:-
I’ll keep this brief as It’s about showing you Donna’s fabulous stamps.
The first card uses the “Treena” set from the Serenity collection. Lots of masking on this one as it has all be done on one layer. Background was using a stencil as a stamp sprinkling on Infusions, a technique that I have covered many times on my Tuesday posts. Then lots of masking and stamping. I kept the background black and white as I wanted to colour the birds in bright colours so they popped off the page.
The second card again involves masking for the background and has been created using Stampdendous Urban Scribble which comes with both a rubber stamp version and a foam version.
I firstly stamped with the rubber and then after having applied a selection of colours using mini Distress pads and a misting of water, stamped the foam over the top.
Masking the building off I then applied the sky with Distress ink applied with a stencil brush. I stamped one of Donna’s quirky girls from her “Quirky Girls” collection, this one is Beki. I have paper pierced her together, these stamps are fabulous for that technique as well as for colouring. The only part I’ve coloured is her face and a little shading to the paper piercing, all this has been done with coloured pencils. The sentiment along the bottom is from PaperArtsy.
Here’s What I Used:-
Various Stamps from my stash
Papers from my stash used for paper piercing
TCW Film Stencil from my stash
Aren’t Donna’s stamps fabulous? So much fun and obviously Quirky!!
I don’t know about you but I can’t wait to see what the rest of the That’s Crafty!Design Team have made as we all showcase our makes using Donna’s stamps.
See you next Tuesday
