Live Simply by Donna Gray


Hi everyone,

Donna here today with a card featuring the lovely Fern, she’s absolutely so much fun to colour in.

What to do:

You’ll need some of the Seth Apter dies for this, use thick white card to cut them from, add a little green Distress ink to the ‘drip drop’ die cut, set them all to one side.

Next stamp Fern on Strathmore Mixed media paper with black Archival ink as you’ll be using a combination of Distress markers to colour her and her birdie friend in. Once finished, fussy cut out which is super easy to do with her.

Stamp the leaf too on the mixed media paper and colour again with Distress Markers, fussy cut out.

Offer up the ‘drip drop’ die cut to the Kraft card to see where to position it and then taking a Dinky stencil pounce through the same green shade of Distress ink you used to colour the ends of the die cut.

Gather up all your die cuts, stamped image’s, washi tape and various little cut outs from patterned papers (any will do, entirely up to you) and start to assemble them and adhere them in the way shown on the card.

There you have a card with Fern the star of the show ;)
