Hi there, back again with another sample, a super quick one this time. Basically this is a master board of lots of my new stamps, and therefore could be cut into any shape.. I decided on a cat.
First I took a piece of smoothy card and sketched out my sitting cat and roughly cut out around the shape.
I then brayered with Pumpkin Soup, Guacamole, Tinned Peas and Autumn Fire. I then stamped with all my new text stamps. I wanted the text ti be faint, so I first stamped onto spare paper and then did a second stamping onto the cat .
Next I selected lots of my smaller stamps, leaves and background stamps and borders. I stamped them using Fresco paints.
Once the rough shape was all full of stamps I cut out the final shape. I love how it looks almost like fabric now.
Next I doodled around all the stamped images with a black pen.
I painted another piece of card black, and glued the card onto the black. I cut this out leaving a small border.
The eyes, ears and nose were stamped onto separate smoothy and glued on. i also added some black strips of card for whiskers. The pupils of the eyes are 2 of the small pebbles from EDY14.
Can you guess what the nose is? it is the 'thistle' type flower. from EDY13.
I thought it needed another pop of colour, so I painted more card with Beach Hut. The cat was then mounted onto this and cut out, again leaving a small border.
I like this faux fabric cat... and love how the stamps are all jumbled together but still work well.
All my new stamps are available now in PaperArtsy retailers.
I will be back soon with more samples.
