I just couldn't wait for my Mini Bird Crazy and Crazy Cats stamps to arrive because I just HAD to get them inked up A.S.A.P.! I already had this idea in my head.
L-o-v-e the new mini stencils! This plus sign reminded me of a Red Cross so it's perfect for a get well card. With the stencil in place I lightly drew around part of a few plus signs then took a regular waterbrush and lightly filled in the space with water, again allowing natural wicking/shading to take place.
On a watercolor cardstock scrap I stamped the 3 sentiments (2 from Brett Wedele's 'Mister Meow Meow and Tweets McGee' and the other from Repeat Impressions) in Jet Black Archival ink. I traced around a Claudine Hellmuth 'Chit Chat' stencil with a black Micron pen. After the sentiments were cut out I smudged brown and gray distress inks on the lower left corner for dimension and shading. A bit of dimensional tape was applied to them before adhering them to the card front. The card was placed on black cardstock then a bright pink card.
These two new sets, along with the larger version of Bird Crazy, are definitely going to get a lot of use! I have so many ideas...I don't know where to start!
