Don't Doubt My Strength by Donna Gray


Hi everyone,

Donna here today using one of my Quirky Girls teamed with other That’s Crafty! products.

What to do:

I used a white/greyboard coaster for this, as it’s a nice size. I splodged a couple of colours of the new Shimmer paints onto my craft mat and then dabbed and ‘swooshed’ the coaster through the paints to give the effect you see here on the background. The paints create a lovely mottled effect like this.

Use one of the Word Series stencils for the stars and the word ‘Imagine’. I used a blue Distress Oxide for the stencilling as it gives a lovely finish.

Take a pair of the greyboard wings and coat with a layer of chalk paint then stamp the stars with black Archival ink, adhere to the coaster.

The Quirky Girl is stamped on a piece of Strathmore Mixed Media Paper and coloured with diluted Distress markers, fussy cut out and adhere directly over the wings. I also used the star stamp to cover her hair and fussy cut out a little flower to fit on her dress.

Well a girl can dream she can fly can’t she?!

Supplies Used:

That’s Crafty! Clear Stamps – Quirky Girls (I used Beki) and Lynne’s Affirmations (I used Set 1)

Hope you like it

  1. Love that background Donna, not tried using the shimmer paints in this way so must give it a try. Beki is a lovely stamp, those stripey stockings always bring a smile to my face. Great way to colour her and fab use of the sentiment. She looks good in those wings.
