Strange Fascination by Donna Gray


Hi everyone,

It's Donna here today with a simple card for you.

What I Did:

I used a C6 Kraft card for this continuing on with my current obsession of using Kraft card of course.

For the middle panel I cut a rectangle from a Gelli print I had in my stash. Sometimes you look at a Gelli print and you don't like it as a whole piece but you can use just parts of it so don't throw them away! This was added to the middle of the card with foam pads.

I then added a bit of frayed Calico over the panel and added a threaded coconut button and a little fabric flower from my stash that I sewed through and left the spare thread dangling.

Now onto the star of the card which is the eye and it's one of the fab stamps from AALL and Create. I stamped this onto a scrap of brown parcel paper and coloured it in with undiluted Distress Markers and added it to the card with a couple of foam pads for extra dimension.

The finishing touch was to add a sentiment from Tim Holtz and there you have a simple but 'eye catching' card.....yes I know, bad pun alert ;)

Supplies Used:

AALL and Create Stamp Set - Set 23
Kraft Cardstock
Tim Holtz - Distress Markers
Tim Holtz - Clippings Stickers
Archival Ink - Black
Gelli Plate - 6x6
Coconut Button
Brown Paper
Calico fabric

Hope you like it
