September 6, 2008

Here is a card I made for Beate's Weekend Sketch Challenge. Every Friday, Beate posts a new sketch on her blog. Go check it out, she has lots of great sketches.

Image of the cat was stamped on white cs with Jet Black Impress ink. Then colored with Skin White, Cream and Pale Sepia Copic markers. I first colored the whole cat image with Skin White, then with Cream and leaving just a little of the skin white. Went over the whole image again with skin white to blend in the 2 colors. Then colored just the edges of the image with Pale Sepia and again went over the Pale Sepia with the Cream to blend in the colors. I then cut out the image and mounted it on to a 2-1/4 x 2-1/4" white cs that I sponge on the edges with Dark Moss and stamped the 'purrr' also with dark moss. This was mounted on to a solid dp from the Sugared collection of BasicGrey. All background paper is from this same collection. For the striped strip of dp, I ran a double sided tape and glittered the strip with Pastel Crystal and rubbed the glitter to let it shine more. This technique is called 'burnished velvet'. I then added some brads along the glitter.
