It was recently the birthday of my lovely crafty friend Donna of Inky & Quirky fame. We both share a love of all things "Dina Wakely" so I have made a 12" x 12" canvas as a birthday present for her. I have used Dina's "lonely Girl" stamp which you can't see to get hold of over here in the UK anymore and Donna just loves this stamp.
I first created my background on the canvas randomly painting Dina's acrylic paints on.
I made some gelli prints using tissue paper of which I have added the circles and some torn strips, I used tissue paper to get a translucent effect.
I then had to enlarge the image. I first stamped my image, photographed it and then once in my PC I enlarged it and fliped the image as I was going to apply it to my canvas using the image transfer technique. I then printed it out on my newly purchased laser printer, I can see plenty of fun ahead to be had with that!!! The image was then transferred using Decoart image transfer medium.
Once my image was in place I added further Dina text stamping, stamping with Dylusions black paint. I added paint around my gelli printed circles and then sanded the black back and then finally some stenciling through sequin waste and black paint and a credit card for the black lines.
If by any chance anyone knows where you can get this stamp in the UK or has one they don't want anymore please let me know.
Hope you like it and thanks for stopping by
