Winter Sky by Donna Gray


Hi everyone,

Donna here today with a wintery card for you featuring one of the fab new Katzelkraft stamps.

The How To:

First step is to stamp the Katzelkraft figure and the Rubber Dance cloud with Versamark ink on a piece of Strathmore Mixed Media Paper, sprinkle on white embossing powder and then use a heat gun until the powder melts.

Spritz the paper with a generous amount of water and then sprinkle some Infusions (Violet Storms). Keep adding and blotting until you’re satisfied with the colour, heat dry when finished.

As you can see, the white embossing acts as a resist to the Infusions so you can achieve a nice clear image still.

I then doodled with a white pen to make it appear like she was standing on a cliff and stamped my hand carved tree lower down in black Archival ink to reflect this.  

The finishing touch was to add a Tim Holtz sentiment and mount onto white cardstock.

A wintery card perfect for this time of year….I’ve certainly had loads of umbrellas blow inside out that’s for sure!!

Supplies Used:

Lost Coast Stamp – Grunge Tree (substitute for my hand carved one)

Hope you like it
