Dreamland by Donna Gray


Hi everyone,

Donna here today using the fronts of the That’s Crafty! shrines to make the focus point for this card.

What to do:

I used a sheet of watercolour paper to swoosh through some diluted Distress Oxides on my craft mat in the lighter colours.

The stiches’ stamps are a huge favourite of mine but you can doodle the effect yourself with a black fine liner pen.

Stamp the circle stamp from the That’s Crafty! Textures set and then put to one side.

For the main focus, use 2 ‘fronts’ from the 2 smaller sizes of shrines.

I used Dylusions black for the back shrine and adhered a number from some Tim Holtz tickets. For the 1 on top, I used Dylusions lime green and stamped another stamp from the Textures set which creates a crackle effect. Adhere this to a little piece of corrugated cardboard that’s been covered with a quick coating of black Distress Ink.

Within the middle is the little starfish from my Marina set, stamp with Stazon as it’s on acrylic and colour in with Posca pens, glue a little piece of Distress Oxide covered paper behind it. Glue and mount the whole lot to the front of the card.

Add a couple of Tim Holtz sentiments and there you have a card that can take you off to Dreamland ;)

Supplies Used:

That’s Crafty! Clear Stamp Sets – Textures and Marina

Hope you like it
