The cat was fussy cut, a Christmas hat was made from tissue paper and a bell added to his tail. He was popped up with dimensional tape. Doesn't he look funky in his shade of green :)
For the wording I used a combination of Tim's words from a word stack, my own handwriting and a sticker ....
I had an awesome time creating and having fun with this project, in the heat we are having here, thinking about the coolness and festivities of Christmas .... lol.
I hope you like it and got inspired - enough to leave a comment ? LOL
*My new favourite paper/card to print digital images onto is pale colored card stock, there are a couple of reasons for this. I have an inkjet printer and often if I print onto white, smooth cardstock the image will easily smudge or react with whatever product I use over it, to color it etc. Many colored card stocks are more absorbent, meaning there is no need to seal the image and it dries much faster. Secondly, colored card stock is often thicker than white, so when I pop up my image it is stronger and remains flat. A good comparison here is Stampin' Up! whisper white compared to a pale subtles color. It has taken me some time to move away from using the traditional white as the stamping base, but I am going to color the image with a variety of mediums anyway, so really it doesn't matter what color I start with :)
Wow Nikki I really like this.i haven't used digi stamps before where did u find the cat?ReplyDelete
Very cute cat, although he looks just a wee bit tipsy - too much Christmas cheer, perhaps?ReplyDelete
I like your cardstock comparison too. I no longer use SU Whisper White as it just isn't heavy enough, especially when I'm blending Distress Inks (my current favourite technique).
I love this, his hat is adorable !ReplyDelete
