In the City by Donna Gray


Hi everyone,

Donna here today with a set of Tim’s wonderful new dies…I just couldn’t resist them!! This is a really quick card to make and have in your stash for that male in your life ;)

What to do:

Take a sheet of Strathmore Mixed Media Paper and sprinkle some of the new Infusions, I used Rocky Road, spritz with water until you get the colour you want, then blot with kitchen roll and heat dry.

The ‘planet’ behind the cityscape was cut with a circle cutter from a scrap of Gelli printed paper using DecoArt paints. If you haven’t got a circle cutter then a circle die would do or even use a little plate to cut around!

The cityscape was cut from patterned paper but you can use absolutely anything for this, I just thought this paper had a great industrial quality to it.

Adhere everything to the background, I used foam pads to prop the cityscape up in the foreground to give more depth.

Add a Tim Holtz sentiment sticker, mount onto black card and then white cardstock and you’re good to go ;)

Supplies Used:

Foam Pads

Hope you like it
