Good Morning everyone, i hope you are having a good week. Boy did it rain here yesterday, better this morning, it was certainly raining cats and dogs yesterday! I wonder where that saying comes from. So today im sharing my last batch of those crazy cats and dogs.
This time i went for completely different and greyscale, i only added a small touch of colour, one set is red, the second is blue. I don't think of myself as a colourist, so many talented crafters out there that do amazing colouring in, but i did enjoy having a go! and its so rare for me not to go full on colour.
Set of 3 DL cards, i first stamped the images on to small white squares and coloured in with distress inks. I then inked around the edges with grey to give a vignette effect to them. Matted onto a black frame. Then i made the card black and mats using white hammered and black cardstock. No sentiment yet, not decided on that so will add that later.
Below is a close up of the 3 sets, i added glossy accents to the noses and eyes to add interest
Distress inks used, black soot, hickory smoke and fired brick for the red, although i did use a touch of blue for the grass
2nd set below using blue instead of the red
Distress Ink Colours used black soot, hickory smoke, stormy sky.
Items used Tim Holtz Crazy cats and dogs mini stamps - CMS272
