I had a lot of fun making today's card using Noof the cat from Lavinia. It involved some masking and some careful positioning.
First I stamped the hat on the card, and also made a mask by stamping and cutting it out of copy paper. I find copy paper is thin enough that the second stamp can press right up to the edge and not leave a white gap. I used a stamp platform as they are quite big stamps and you can always go again if you miss a bit.
With the hat masked off I stamped the cat on top...
...so that when the mask was removed the hat sits neatly between the ears.
Next I postioned the mice (it took a few practice attempts)...
...and the baubles...and drew in the strings.
I used a white pencil to add some shading to the mice and coloured the rest with alcohol markers. The last bit was some stencilling with weathered wood Distress Ink.
I don't think Noof is very impressed with the decorations! What do you imagine he's thinking?
Thank you for stopping by. I appreciate all your comments.
