Little Things by Donna Gray


Hi everyone,

Donna here today with a card using one of the new Infusions powders which are great for quick watercolour effects.







What to do:


Use a sheet of Strathmore Mixed Media Paper and sprinkle on a little amount of Infusions, I used the new Green Man one for this, and spritz with water. Now at this stage, it really depends on what effect you want but leaving for longer before blotting with kitchen roll or heat drying will mean more of the brown Bister crystals will develop for a grungier look.

Once that is dry, stamp a flower image on the background, the one I used is a Carabelle one from my stash but Tim’s wildflowers set would work just as well, use Archival ink in Potting soil for it.

For the jar I hand carved a little stamp from Speedycarve but once again if you have a jar/bottle type stamp then you can use that. I carved this one large enough so I could cut the middle out of it if I wanted to and it was easier to fussy cut out as a whole image too.







Stamp the bottle image with black Archival, cut out, adhere a little twine around the top and then pop a little glue on the back of it and place over the flower image.

Add one of Tim’s new Clipping Stickers, mount on black card and then white cardstock for a simple yet striking card.



Supplies Used:


Substitute Tim Holtz – Wildflowers Set for Carabelle one
  

Hope you like it
