Don’t let Anyone Dull your Sparkle by Donna Ratcliff


So everyone ready for the weekend? I have a bright and colourful journal page to share with you this Saturday morning…..

Lost Coast Stamps – Feather Bird
Artistic Outpost – Generation Redux
Kaisercraft Clear Stamps – Grid, Distress, Confidence
That Special Touch Mask - Moroccan
Memento Ink – Tuxedo Black


1. First of all I applied a thin coat of gesso over the page, gave it a quick dry (don’t do waiting!!) then put on blocks of colour using Picked Raspberry, Spiced Marmalade and Mustard Seed Distress Paint. I let it dry a little and then wiped some of it off with a baby wipe to reveal patches of the gesso covered page underneath.

2. Then I added a layer of Distress Ink…..Picked Raspberry, Ripe Persimmon, Peacock Feathers, Mustard Seed.

        (before ink)                                                                                   (after inking)                           

3. I used the Moroccan mask to add a bit more interest and another layer of colour, blending in more ink.

4. Then I added some background stamping using a couple of the smaller stamps from Artistic Outposts Generation Redux plate and Kaisercrafts’ Distress and Grid stamps.

5. Finally I stamped the lovely Feather Bird (back in stock soon) by Lost Coast and added the words from Kaisercrafts’ Confidence set then to finish added some white highlights to the bird using a white pen.

Hope you have a lovely weekend and see you next week
