Moth to the Light by Donna Gray


Hi everyone, 

Donna here today with a moth drawn to the light made with scraps of paper.

What to do:

I’m currently getting my living room completely over hauled so part of this is getting wallpaper samples. After you’ve chosen your wallpaper what do you do with all the samples……use that in your art of course!! So the background for the card is exactly that, part of a wallpaper sample.

The moth and light bulb are newly arrived in the shop from Visible Image (aren’t they fab) these were stamped with black Archival ink on Gelli printed paper using Decoart media fluid paints.

Fussy cut out both images, stamp the moth directly onto the background first as well though as you don’t want to try and fussy cut out the legs etc!

Adhere to the background and then go around the light bulb with a yellow Distress marker to give a warm glow, draw a little hanging cord from the top of it too.

Lastly add a sentiment, this one’s my own but That’s Crafty! have lots of lovely sentiment stamps you can use too.

So a card for you using up those scraps of paper that we all keep but never know what to do with ;)


Supplies Used:

Sentiment Stamps

Hope you like it
