So today im sharing a box set i made with the Tim Holtz mini crazy cats and dogs. My first outing for most of them, had fun colouring them in crazy colours to add a splash of colour to mainly black and white cards.
After making the box and lid i covered it with white panels which id stamped the cats and dogs on, 12 cards to a box with envelopes
below is a close up of some of the cards
A6 black card blank, clearly besotted sentiment stamps, i did a mix of sentiments for the box and 6 cats and 6 dogs. For the toppers i used sizzix Polaroid dies, cut in white, i then stamped and coloured the images onto the middle section, layered back into the frame and mounted on black cardstock.
Below showing the full menagerie! All watercoloured with distress inks, some i doodled a little scene to ground them, a couple of the cats with butterflies, i just used a black micron pen for that. I shaded around them with a light grey promarker and also the outside edge to give depth in the frame. Had great fun going crazy with the colour combos. Glossy accents on all noses and eyes.
Distress inks used, squeezed lemonade, wild honey, ripe persimmon, salty ocean, twisted citroen, raspberry, cracked pistachio, clover, seedless preserve, fired brick, peacock, shaded lilac.
Thank you for looking. Emma
