Good Morning all, i hope you have all had a good week and those that haven't been well are on the mend.
So today I'm sharing the second outing of my Tim Holtz crazy mini cats and dog stamps. I went with the idea of family photos on the wall. This time instead of colouring the cats and dogs I left them white and went with a bright background.
First i stamped the cat/dog, and drew in a little background scene using a black fine liner, i then masked the images with pebeo drawing gum, once that was dry i built up the colour with distress inks, this one is ripe persimmon and cracked pistachio. I then splashed on water and where it dries gives a mottled effect.
I then stamped over the top in grey using Stampin up Dictionary definition stamp to add detail. Once dry remove the drawing gum and shade around the images using a soft grey pencil to add more depth.
Close up to show the detail better
This version is twisted citron and picked raspberry inks. Different from the cats is that i used a pale lilac marker on the dogs noses and collars.
This version is salty ocean and wild honey inks, where they meet gives the 3rd colour of green.
Smile is a sizzix die cut in the same colours of ink and a black shadow added. Craft wire and gems to add the picture hangings.
and showing one of the inserts, i stamped all of them in grey with the same cats/dogs i used on the card front. A5 cards in size.
Thank you for looking and all your comments on my last uploads. Wishing you all a wonderful weekend. Emma
