Colour your World by Donna Gray


Hi everyone,

Donna here today with a duo of ATC’s for you using some of the yummy new That’s Crafty! clear stamps.

What I did:

I used 2 greyboard ATC’s both of which I covered with a coat of That’s Crafty! Multi Surface Paints.

For the ‘paintbrushes’ ATC I stamped the image on a piece of Strathmore Mixed Media Paper and coloured in with a selection of diluted Distress Markers, cutting into the ‘brush heads’ to create texture, I then covered the ‘jar’ with a thin layer of DecoArt Liquid Glass to add dimension to it. I stamped the sentiments with black Archival ink and the ‘paint splats’ were achieved by using various colours of ink pads and paints.

I then mounted the image on to a couple of foam pads to add a little further dimension to it.

For the ‘heart’ ATC I used a That’s Crafty! MDF heart, which I covered with a layer of DecoArt Crackle Paste and set aside to dry. From my ever expanding box of dried natural treasures I used the dried flower and applied a little glue to the back of it and adhered it to the heart. I then used some raffia to wrap around the heart; some sequins and white enamel dots then added the sentiment to the ATC.

I mounted both the ATCs’ onto black card and then white cardstock so I was able to display it better. It really is amazing just how much you can fit onto an ATC isn’t it.

Supplies Used:

Hope you like it

The artist palette you created on the other ATC you really made live , by cutting into the brushes ,making them look even more old, and used . Must look amazing with the liquid glass on the jar , and Lynne`s Affirmations are so lovely, also here!!
