SUO184 Autumn Kitty
It’s time for the #184 “Shape Up!” Challenge at SU-Only Challenges! We are challenging you to use your favorite punch(s) and/or dies and I decided to use the Cat Punch from the new Holiday Mini. As soon as I saw this punch, I knew it would be one of my first purchases from the HM- it is so cute and versatile!
I love to watercolor so I paired the Cat Punch with a background create with Autumn Colors and am linking to the INKSpire_Me #318 “Autumn-Halloween Special” Challenge as well as the Word Art Wednesday #300-#301 “Anything Goes” Challenge.
If you have not had a chance to stop by the SU-Only Challenge site to check out the rest of the Design Team projects or the other challenge sites yet, I encourage you to do so- gorgeous inspiration from all!
To create this card:
1). Ink the You’ve Got This floral blossom with Stampin’ Archival™ Basic Black Archival Ink and stamp onto a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock. Apply Clear Embossing Powder and heat set with the Heat Tool. Create a mask of the flower, mask the initial image and repeat the steps above for two additional blossoms .
2). Using ink from the ink pads along with an AquaPainter™, watercolor the blossoms and background. I used Crushed Curry for the flower centers, Cajun Craze and Rich Razzleberry for the petals and Bermuda Bay for the background. I also used Stampin’ Write markers in the same colors to add additional shadows and depth.
3). Once you are satisfied with the watercolor, trim the panel and add the sentiment from Rose Wonder with Stampin’ Archival™ Basic Black Archival Ink and emboss with clear embossing powder. Add a bit of splatter with the small splatter image from Timeless Textures with Early Espresso Classic Ink.
4). Trim the panel, mount onto Cajun Craze cardstock, trim again and mount onto Very Vanilla cardstock. Trim once more and mount onto Cajun Craze cardstock.
5). Stamp the floral scroll stamp from Timeless Textures with Versamark™ ink onto a piece of Bermuda Bay cardstock, trim and mount onto Cajun Craze cardstock and mount onto a white card base.
6). Add the stamped floral panel directly to the card front, use the Clear Wink of Stella™ Glitter Pen to add shimmer to the blossoms and the White Gel Pen to add highlights to the flower centers.
7). Use the Cat Punch with Basic Black cardstock and cut out three cats, layer together and add to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals® to finish off the card.
