I saw some beautiful cards today over on the Blog of KT FIT KITTY and I was busting to try her technique out... so off I went.
Well - it all went a bit 'snafu' on me but I carried on and made some cards with my results anyways :-(
Here's what I ended up with.
Now, I don't know whether my watercolour paper was too thick or I was using the wrong sort of inks, but it didn't do what I wanted. I know I had the paper wet enough cuz I had to hang it out on the line to dry off. The puss cats were stamped on but I had to go over this one with a marker as it didn't come out too well.
I used BoHo Chic papers from First Edition and flower buttons from my stash and copied Sketch #357 (inverted) from Sketch Saturday.
I tried this one using Stayzon but I think the watercolour paper is too bumpy for a good image.
Stripey paper is from my snippets box and the twine is part of a recent Prize and is from STAMPIN' UP .. 'In Colour Accessory Pack'.
I followed Sketch #235 for this one.
This one totally didn't really work because I blobbed it with Tim Holtz alcohol dies - and of course, they don't go with water !!! :-( I wuite like the effect, so I used it anyway.
The papers are bits from my snippets box and I don't know who they are by. The kitties on these cards are from De-Stempelwinkel - Cherry Pie range. This one uses Sketch #340 (rotated).
Since I semi-failed at this I decided to have a go with bleach on coloured card and I made these.....
The Puss cat is from TLC Creations and the other two are from The Graphics Fairy.
With these, I bleached the red card using a mister containing ordinary household bleach and a little water and then dried it with my heat gun.
I then printed the images onto it - having lined them up, added sentiments and then test printed them first.
I made two little cards and a kitty ATC with a tiny cat brad embellie :-D
I added my own sentiment to the Cow card and she is placed on a backing paper that says 'Hello' in lots of different languages :-)
So - I got lovely inky fingers and had a pretty good time today. :-D
It's no good.... I shall just have to fly over to see KT FIT KITTY for some lessons :-D hee hee
