Adventure Awaits by Donna Gray


Hi everyone, 

Donna here today using some gorgeous Rubber Dance stamps.

What to do:

Take a size 8 manila tag and swoosh through a mixture of Distress Oxides, stick to the lighter colours.

Then stamp the Rubber Dance images with black Archival ink and colour them in using an assortment of Distress Markers, diluted with a water brush first.

I’ve ‘grounded’ the flying figure on a stitch style stamp from my stash but you can doodle a faux stitch effect too.

Add some doodling and splatters with a white Posca pen, the Posca pens are now available from the shop…..YAY!

Go around the images with a grey Distress marker to give the illusion of depth. Add some stickles to her body to give the glittery effect.

Add some ribbon from your stash and a couple of Tim Holtz sentiments. Now you’re all ready for your next adventure ;)

Supplies Used:

Rubber Dance Stamps – Textured Feathers and Fly with Me
Tim Holtz Idea-ology – Clippings and Metallic Quotations 

Hope you like it
