A Little Bit of Everything by Donna Gray


Hi everyone,

It's Donna here today with a tag featuring one of my favourite girls, Cara.

What I Did:

First of all I cut a size 8 tag from a piece of Strathmore Mixed Media paper as I knew I wanted something that would take a bit of water. If you don't have the Sizzix die for this can then you can use a manila size 8 tag as a template for cutting around.

Next step was to step Cara directly onto the tag using black Archival ink. I then coloured her in using a mixture of Jane Davenport Mermaid Markers which were diluted with a water brush. For some reason my girls always seem to have very rosy cheeks!!

I then stamped the dragonflies (these come in the Cara stamp set too) on a separate piece of Strathmore paper and coloured them in with Mermaid Markers too, then I fussy cut them out and adhered them to Cara's rather fab swirly hair.

The next step was to raid my little box of fabric scraps to glam up Cara with an assortment of trimmings and bling which were adhered directly to the tag.

I then added the finishing touches with some doodling, a ribbon and some Tim Holtz clippings sentiments.

There you have Cara looking very posh with her rosy red cheeks all aglow too ;)

Supplies Used:

That's Crafty! Clear Stamp Set - Donna's Girls Collection - Cara
Strathmore Mixed Media Paper Pad
Jane Davenport - Mermaid Markers
Tim Holtz - Clippings Stickers
Black Archival Ink Pad
Water Brush

Hope you like it
