Woodware USA Challenge - A sketch for December
My card today has been made to enter into the sketch challenge over at Woodware USA.
Don't forget that this sketch is also being used in the UK over at Woodware UK so you can play along there as well.
Groovy Cats FRCL124.
I have stamped and embossed the cat onto watercolour card and coloured it using dye based inks. It has been cut out using an oval nestie and a technique called 'Out of the Box with Nestabilities' which I found on Youtube. This allows you to leave part of the image outside of the nestie.
I stamped and embossed in versamark and clear embossing powder and then painted with thin undiluted bleach.
I added a white dot to the fish eyes with a Gelly roll glaze pen.
The strip of brown card has also been stamped and embossed with versamark and clear embossing powder.
I couldn't find a fish, but then given that our cat has a tendency to bring us presents of slow worms and newts it probably won't be long before she adds frogs to her repertoire. It therefore did seem kind of fitting lol.
I hope that this will inspire you to enter the challenge HERE.
I must write some Christmas cards now otherwise all my efforts to get them finished on time will go to waste.
Have a lovely evening.
