Don't Doubt by Donna Gray


Hi everyone,

It's Donna here today with a card featuring a fab little character from Rubber Moon called Lucy.

What I Did:

The background was created by applying a mixture of Fresco paints to my Gelli plate, pressing a That's Crafty! 8x8 stencil into it, removing it and then pulling the print. You don't need to be too fussy with what paper you use for it but just don't use anything too thin to hold the paint.

I put that aside to dry while I stamped the little Rubber Moon character, the dragonfly from Cara (from the Donna's Girls Collection) and one of the sentiments from Lynne's Affirmations. These were all stamped on a sheet of Strathmore Mixed Media paper with black Archival ink and then cut into rectangles or whatever shapes you call them!

I coloured them in with some Mermaid Markers which were then diluted with a water brush. I absolutely love these although you have to be careful with them as they are very potent!

Once that was done, I adhered the stamped images onto the Gelli print background and doodled with a black fine liner pen for some finishing detail.

I then mounted it onto 5x7 white card stock to complete it.

I can see this quirky little character being used a lot in the future ;)

Rubber Moon Stamp - Lucy
That's Crafty! Clear Stamps - Donna's Girls Collection - Cara
