Smile by Donna Gray


Hi everyone,

Donna here today with a smiley little monster jumping for joy…’s have feelings too you know!!

What to do:


Take a sheet of Strathmore Mixed Media Paper and cut to size to fit comfortably on a 6x6 card.

Stamp everything but the flower directly on the paper with black Archival ink, place the monster just above the ‘ribbon’ to make it look like he’s in mid jump. Stamp the flower separately, fussy cut out and put to one side for now.

Start colouring in with a mixture of Distress Markers and a water brush…..your monster can be any colour you like of course.

Once you’ve coloured it all, adhere your little flower and add a Tim Holtz Small Talk sentiment, mount on black card and then white cardstock.

I wondered how my That’s Crafty! clear stamps would work with the little monster, I think they fit together perfectly ;)

Supplies used:

Hope you like it
