Tiny Dancer by Donna Gray


Hi everyone,

Donna here today with a card featuring some of the new That’s Crafty! texture stamps which are a must have to make fab backgrounds with.

What to do:

Use a mixture of Distress Oxides to apply to your craft sheet, activate with a couple of sprays of water and use a sheet of Strathmore Mixed Media Paper to capture the colours. Dry thoroughly in between layers; continue until you get the desired colours/effect you want.

Stamp the script stamp in black Archival ink but for all the rest of the stamped images, use the Oxides for the stamping, it’s amazing how well they stamp with.….is there anything these inks cant do?!

Adhere one of Tim’s Paper Dolls’ to the background, colour in very lightly with a Distress Marker and create a shadow around her with a black water soluble pencil. Add some of Tim’s new word stickers for a finishing touch; I scrunched up the metallic one to make it look a bit more vintage.

Add a little bit of bling, mount onto black card and then white cardstock and there you have a cute little card ;)

Supplies Used:

Hope you like it
