A Bit of Dina Play by Amanda Southern


Hi Everyone

It’s been ages since I have played with any Dina Wakley stamps, that is until today. I thought that one of those girls deserved an inking so I have a mixed media card for you.

Here’s what I did:-

I brayered several PaperArtsy paints onto thick white card and painted in some random shapes. I then doodled with a black fineliner pen around the shapes. I stamped the text shapes onto a piece of scrap paper I had used to clean the brayer on, cut it out and added it to my background. 

I then stencilled on with paint using a couple of Dinky stencils and one of Dina’s stencils. I then added thin torn strips of washi tape and made some paint marks using an old credit card.

I stamped my image onto white card, cut out and added to the piece. I then stamped on one of Dina’s sentiments. I felt it still needed a bit more contrast so I scraped some heavy white gesso through the Dinky stencil in a couple of places. I was happier with it now. I then mounted onto black card and onto a card blank.

Here’s What I Used:-

That's Crafty! Dinky Stencils – Quarter Circles & Punchinella
Dina Wakley Stamp Sets – Silhouetted Women & Handwritten Quotes
Old Credit Card
Card Blank

Hope you liked it and I will see you all next Tuesday
