One Cat Short of Crazy

Hey Junkies,

The Crafty Nurse here today with one cat crazy card!

I used the Misti stamping tool to create my card today.  The great thing about this tool is when you have a solid stamp, you can still get a really crisp image.  It also helps when you are doing more complex masking like I did here with the January release stamp “Cat Crazy SD701.”

I started by stamping each of the “Crazy Cat’s” onto my card front.  They were done in Archival Inks in Sepia, Black Soot, & Hickory Smoke.  I then masked all three of the cats and placed the Art Anthology Stencil called “Cracked” over top and stenciled in using Vintage Photo Distress Inks.  I stamped off 3 more of the black cats and then cut out the word “crazy” which I used as my sentiment.

To finish off I created a ground for my kitties to sit on with watercolored distress inks and finished off with more distressing on the edges.

I’ve also entered this card in the Mixed Media Stencil challenge using the Art Anthology Cracked Stencil.

For those crazy cat lovers and stampers alike, I hope you’ve found a little inspiration today and look forward to seeing what you do with your new Technique Junkies stamps.

Happy Inking,

The Crafty Nurse

Hello fellow Hero Art’s Friends!

Kathy, The Crafty Nurse here today sharing some inspiration for our “Pop of Color” challenge in collaboration with The Ton.   You have until the end of the day to enter this month over at A Blog Named Hero.  

Both cards were made using The Ton’s “Fall Foliage” set. This stunning stamp layering set is so great, I made two cards!  The first card is in line with our “pop of color” challenge and features the stamp layering technique from The Ton’s You-Tube video.  I personally used a Misti tool to make sure my layers aligned. For background leaves, I stamped only the final layer in the leaf set so my focal leaf “Popped” and added a Darice embossing folder over a diffuser for more “pop”.

My second card features negative watercoloring taught by Dawn Woleslagle of WPlus 9 in Online Card Classes Intermediate course.  I am quite the novice in watercolor, but I really enjoyed using this gorgeous stamp with this technique.
