Flat cat!


Hi everyone, I've been working on some birthday cards for my stash.
My son loves our cat and she often gives him this look lol! So this will be for his birthday coming up soon.

I made an ink slip up on the white above the cat so fussy cut this part. I masked a strip from the black line down with large post it notes, and blended on some iced spruce distress oxide ink and some regular weathered wood distress ink. A spritz of water added the concretey texture.

The theme at Less is More is watercolour. I'm hoping inking and spritzing fits the theme.


This cat is one of the first Katzelkraft stamps that I bought, along with the scratching cat, but this is it's first inking so I'm linking up with my final entry into Darnell's NBUS challenge. To join in just make sure to use something new or old from your stash that has never been used before.

IT'S HERE!

I'm also linking up to the anything goes challenge at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday,

At AAA Cards it's a sketch theme.



At Seize the Birthday I'm playing along with the anything goes option.


Supplies:

Katzelkraft cat stamp; Technique Tuesday sassy cat sentiment stamp; birthday sentiment sticker; versafine ink; iced spruce dox ink; weathered wood distress ink.

Thanks for visiting,
Cathy x

  16. Very whimsical and so cute. This kitty has catitude fer sure. Your son will love it. Enjoyed reading about your save, and if you hadn't told, would never have guessed. That's a great modern art look design to evolve from your fix, and the ice spruce looks great with the intense black of the languid cat. TFS & Hugs
