Saturday’s blog a new technique.
This one’s for all those cat lovers among us…
You will need:
And embossing tool and an embossing mat (or a mousepad)
Fine Sanding paper.
This is so simple, but so effective.
Stamp the kitten in Black Archival on the square piece of parchment.
Sprinkle with Detail Clear embossing powder, dust off excess powder, and heat emboss.
Turn the work over and lay it on an embossing pad, or a computer mouse pad. Now emboss the parchment with an embossing tool.
Along the whiskers,
in the ear,
around the eyes…
This is what it looks like from the front.
Now we have to carefully lay the parchment piece down
on a double-sided adhesive sheet.
Easy does it…
Next, we peel the orange wax paper off the back of the double-sided adhesive sheet, and attach it to a piece of grey card.
To get that distressed, scratchy background, get some fine sandpaper, and start sanding around the kitten!
Trim the parchment and grey card down to one neat edge, and mount on white card.
The white frame really makes the kitten look 3-dimensional.
We’ve got an old black cat, called Romeo.
Juliet is already at Rainbow Bridge, waiting for him.
And if he doesn’t stop using my leather sofa as a scratch post,
he’ll be joining her sooner than he thinks!
We are having a spelling dispute here! I am outnumbered! Help!
