Down to the River by Donna Gray


Hi everyone, 

Donna here today with a tag for you featuring a fab little fish from Lost Coast Designs.

What I did:

I used a size 8 manila tag to randomly brayer on some Fresco paints in blue and white.

Take the ‘bubbles’ Dinky stencil and dab through some green Distress Oxide, I always love the effect this gives over paint.

Next step was to stamp the images from the Lost Coast Designs set and I also used my very own starfish and seaweed from one of the Deep Sea Divas sets. All the stamping is in black Archival ink.

For the colouring in I used watercolour pencils, which I then activated with a water brush.

I then added a little doodling with my favourite white Posca pen, edged around the tag with a black inkpad and added the words from Tim Holtz clipping stickers.

A little bit of raffia was added as a finishing touch and there you have the little fish happily swimming away without a care in the world ;)

Supplies Used:

Hope you like it
