It has been a BUSY month for me in regards to school and family obligations. I am finally getting to post.
Yes, I know it’s Fall but I COULD NOT resist this cute Margaret Sherry image. I’ve been wanting to ink this little guy for a while and now’s my chance.
I first stamped (with black ink) and colored the cat mage from Sunny Days (30-180) with Prismacolor Pencils. Once colored, I then added Glossy Accents to the sunglass lenses. The image was then fussy cut. I set the image aside.
I proceeded to work on the card panel. I positioned the Zigs and Zags (25-010) stencil, towards the left bottom corner of the panel. I planned to add my cat image on that corner. With various shades of Distress Ink I started to partially ink the stencil using darker blues (Mermaid Lagoon and Salty Ocean) at the area where I would position the cat image. I then used Tumbled Glass to fade the darker blues out and finally adding Pumice Stone towards the edges of my partially inked area. I lightly splattered water with a wet brush on the ink area. A sentiment from Sweet Wishes (30-104) was stamped and embossed at the top right corner of the panel.
To complete the card, I added the cat image in the stenciled area with foam tape. I added sequins around the image for more interest. Finally, I added white fun foam to the panel and adhered it to the card base.
Until next time!
