Steampunk Fred by Donna Gray


Hi everyone,

It's Donna here today with a cat wearing a bowler hat....nothing unusual about that is there?! This is no ordinary cat though because this is Fred from a brand new stamp release from That's Crafty!

What I Did:

I had a little nose through my stash of Gelli prints from a mammoth printing session a while back and selected this one you see here. You can use any paints for Gelli printing but I do like the Decoart Media Acrylics as they're very free flowing. I think the background was created either by bubble wrap or sequin waste being pressed into the paint.

So now Fred and the hat from the Ella stamp set were stamped on some Strathmore Mixed Media paper and then coloured in with Mermaid Markers that had been very well diluted.

I then fussy cut them both out and adhered them to the front of the Gelli printed background.

I then mounted all of it on a Kraft Card (yes I know I use it all the time) and added a Tim Holtz sentiment.

There you have Fred just doing his own thing and looking very bemused about it all too!!
