Hello my Artsy Friends! Today, I would like to share with you my Kitty Cat banner. I am a cat person (as you can tell) and thought it would be fun to play with some of the great cat stamps that RubberMoon has in their store.
I had a lot of fun with this banner and used my beloved cat Miss Blue, who is a pure bred blue point rag doll, as my inspiration for the stamps and the sentiments. I used various colors of ink to achieve my background, and have a short tutorial below to show how I achieved the look.
After I was happy with the watercolor look of the inks, I used various RubberMoon stamps in the background to finish off the look before I stamped on my focal images of the cats.
Here is my banner put together and complete....
I used my Pentel watercolor pen and some colorful inks in various colors. First I dipped my brush in the inks and did random areas of the Inchie Art Squares Tile. I really love these tiles, they really are super sturdy and make for a great base for my banner.
After I had added all my colors it was time to stamp my images.
I have used a very non-conventional item to put my stamped image on...toilet tissue! Yes, that's right, I have used some ordinary toilet tissue. I love the effect it gives! I wanted the Cat stamps to stand out from the background stamping I did and this was a great way to achieve the look. The tissue took the stamp great and then I fussy cut it out and mod podged it onto the art square. The finished result is something different and fun!
I hope you have enjoyed taking a peek into my studio today, and will try out some of these techniques and sweet kitty cat stamps from RubberMoon, they are just purrrfect!
