I used my Wizard Die cut machine today with on of the Spellbinders Nestabilities, Labels Four. This was cut out of Whisper White card stock using the second to the largest die in the set.
Brayered Tempting Turquoise ink at the top of the card stock.
Added a circle punched out of the sticky part of a post it note to mask for the moon.
Brayered Taken with Teal ink at the top of the card stock over the moon mask.
Removed the moon mask and brayered Old Olive ink at the bottom of the card stock.
Stamped the Cat and added White Gel pen to his collar, eye and whiskers.
Stamped one of the plants from the Pocket Silhouettes set twice using Old Olive ink.
Added White Highlights and Black marker shadows to the leaves.
Added a shadow underneath of the cat with a Gray marker.
Put the Spellbinders die back over the card stock and used my finger to apply Garden Green Stampin’ Pastel to the edge next to the die all the way around the card stock.
Used my Wizard Die Cut machine again, this time with the largest Label from the set and Old Olive card stock.
Stamped the Flourish twice from the Stampin’ Up set Baroque Motifs using White Craft ink on a 5.25″ square piece of Basic Black card stock.
Heated the ink to dry it. I cannot stand to wait for ink to dry, lol.
Colored the flowers in with an Aquamarine Prismacolor Pencil.
Colored over the vine with a Chartreuse Prismacolor Pencil.
Added some True Blue Prismacolor Pencil to the vines.
Assembled the card front and added Old Olive Ribbon and Tempting Turquoise Brads.
Added Old Olive and Tempting Turquoise punched Photo Corners, along with Old Olive Brads.
Here is the completed card measuring 5.5″ square.
Keeping with the cat theme today, here is a funny for you.
May your day be spent with your favorite furry friend. 🙂
