BIRTHDAY CAT by Fran Chalmers

 Hi everyone

I'm more of a dog person than a cat person, but I do love this stamp of a singing cat playing guitar! 


Firstly, I made the background by brayering two colours of distress oxides onto my 4" round gelli plate, then splashing with water drops (I put the gelli plate onto a large acrylic block so I can place it onto the card and see what I am getting!). I rarely get a perfect circle but I'm not bothered about that!



I then stamped the cat with Versafine Clair (Nocturne) onto card and embossed it with clear embossing powder, and then cut it out.  I put some musical washy tape on the card base for it to sit on, and also a bit to go under the sentiment.


After stamping the sentiment, I edged it with blue and mounted it on sticky pads to make it pop.



Lastly, I added splodges with a black posca pen (hitting it with a heavy ruler!) to add a bit of texture.

Hope you like it!
