Meet Amelie by Donna Gray


Hi everyone,

It's Donna here today showcasing one of the Donna's Girls stamps I designed for That's Crafty! please meet the very lovely Amelie ;)

What I did:

I used a large white/greyboard panel for this which already has the hanging holes added for your convenience. I then set about adding the colours using a mixture of green, purple and blue multi surface paints with a brayer, which gives a lovely random effect.

Once that was dry I used one of the fab new That's Crafty! stencils with the Light Texture Paste to make a 'frame' around the images I was going to add to the middle. Once that was dry I added a little colour to it using some Gelatos as I only wanted a very light colouring.

I then stamped Amelie, the flaming heart and the crown onto a piece of Strathmore Mixed Media paper with black Archival ink and coloured in with a mixture of Distress Markers then fussy cut them out and adhered to the panel.

I then stamped directly onto the panel using another stamp from the Amelie set and also one from the Cara set (the leaf) which I also coloured in with a white Posca pen for a little pop of white.

For a finishing touch I added a sentiment from Tim Holtz and also added a piece of Bakers Twine to hang the panel with.

I really hope you all enjoyed meeting Amelie as much as I enjoyed creating her ;)
