Good Morning everyone
This is the 2nd outing for my new katzelkraft cat stamps. Ive teamed them up with this fab inkylicious quote 'Laughter....sparkles like a splash of water in the sunlight' So ive built my little scene around it
A5 white cardbase. I took a piece of white card smaller than the front and stamped the cat branch, flying cat and quote in place. I then heat embossed the waterdrops around them using a clear iridescent embossing powder which shimmers green when the light hits it.
I brushed on distress inks tumbled glass & salty ocean, keeping less colour around the sentiment area. Normally when i ink a background i go for full coverage but as i was building it up i liked the movement this had so stopped inking. I use 'Pro Arte' stencil brushes - ive had mine years with lots of use and they are still in excellent condition.
I placed a circle/sun burst stencil over the stamped quote and inked through with lemonade oxide ink. The oxide ink goes nicely over the distress ink and still stays yellow instead of turning green if id used lemonade distress ink. I then matted the panel onto black card and then the base.
I stamped the cats again onto white card and watercoloured with derwent inktense pencils and cut them out. I gently added shape to them before decoupaging on the base with glue gel.
I added touches of glitter around some of the water drops to finish.
