Meet Marina by Donna Gray


Hi everyone,

Donna here today and I’m thrilled to be featuring one of my new Deep Sea Diva stamps, come and meet Marina ;)

What to do:

Use a That’s Crafty! Acrylic Stack for this. Paint the MDF background with a mixture of green/blue Fresco paints, when dry stamp Marina directly on top using black Archival ink.

I coloured in Marina using my Zig pens but Distress Markers would work just as well or pencils etc, whatever you feel comfortable with.

For the ‘netting’ use a fine black liner pen to draw the netting effect randomly, make sure to keep it squiggly.

Use a white Gelato for the bubbles in the background.

How to layer this is completely up to you, there is no right or wrong way but just be careful that you don’t obscure any of your stamping when you are layering, do a ‘trial’ run first!!

For the other layers, make sure you use Stazon ink as you will be stamping directly on the acrylic this time, anything other than Stazon will smear.

I coloured the images with a mixture of Posca pens but you can use paints too although they will take a little longer to dry.

I added a Tim Holtz sentiment as a finishing touch and assembled the stack which is super easy as you’re supplied with the screw and washers.

I really hope you all like Marina as I had such fun creating her. By the way the little seahorse that hangs from her hair is so easy to detach and use separately too ;)

Supplies Used:

Posca Pens

Hope you like it
