Cute Critter by Donna Gray


Hi everyone,

It's Donna here today with a tag featuring one of Magda's cute little critters :)

What I did:

I used one of these fab little greyboard tags that have a lovely shaped top to them which adds extra interest. I coated it with a layer of black Gesso (best Gesso ever in my humble opinion) and then started the fun doodling process with a mixture of Posca pens.

The flowers at the bottom are from one of Magda's stencils that I traced through with a white pen then filled the rest in using the Posca pens.

I drew a doodle and also stamped the sentiment from one of Lynne's Affirmations onto a scrap of Gelli print which were then both fussy cut out and adhered to the tag. The other doodle was done on a scrap of vintage French text.

Lastly but not of course least, the cute critter was stamped onto a piece of Strathmore paper and then coloured in with a mixture of diluted Distress Markers, fussy cut out then added to the tag with a couple of foam dots for extra dimension.

I added a bit of twine to the top and then the tag was finished...I told you he was a cutie ;)
