To celebrate the fact that we purchased a new printer (DH brought it for his legal work, but when he doesn't use it, it is MINE!!) I made this card. Love this cat..especially his grin! :D
The image was there, now I needed the sketch. Jaya came to the rescue with a bonus sketch for her challenge blog, and I loved it. And it is summertime at Simon Says Challenge blog :D. What is better than a cool cat!!
There's not much to explain in this card..except for the white lines on the sentiment. Those are cat-scratches made by this cat while sighing in happiness (are you hearing that nasty sound of nails being scratched on the blackboard? I'm sure you are..and you are welcome) :D
Image colored with watercolor pencils, and As usual, my black sharpie and white gel pen. And those rounded corners on the image are made with Shilpi's cut -n-tuc rounded square template.
The sentiment in printed (of course) and says "Purr-fect".The fur-font was purr-fect for this card!
I'm so happy to see, everyone's cards are having this glue and gloss. So my tutorial wasn't entirely funny!! It did help some people. And speaking about Glue and gloss, Shalini and I discovered through trial and error, that this will smear your sketch pens, especially your Faber-Castell. So learn from our mistakes, don't make your own!!
And another experiment that I tried was using it as a tacky glue (temporary adhesive) on my unmounted rubber stamps (even the nylon ones). It works. Not so great, but enough that you can stamp the image. It will stick to CD cases, your acrylic blocks. Just apply glue and gloss to the back of your unmounted stamp, just like with the images, let it dry overnight and use it on your block. One tip, press a little hard on the stamp to stick it before you ink it up. Though I still want sheets of EZmount, till I get those, these will work better than double sided tapes! And if you want to remove this glue, scratch it off and it comes off very easily. No harm to your stamps! Try and let me know.
P.S. did you notice the little butterfly on the top, where my blog address is displayed? :D
