Be Awesome at Christmas by Donna Gray


Hello everyone, 

Donna here today with a new Dinky stencil and some new stamps from Katzelkraft too. I love these cat one’s, the expressions are exactly like how my cat acts….especially when you see the grumpy one in the set! Yes the little mouse does come with the cat too.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Here’s What To Do:

 
 
Take some white card, the Christmas Tree Dinky Stencil and pounce some Distress Ink through it, I used Mowed Lawn for this.
 
 
Stamp the little mouse directly above the tree and colour very lightly with some Spectrum Noir pencils.
 
 
For the cat, stamp the image onto a Gelli print using black Archival ink. The original Gelli print was made using DecoArt paints and just had a piece of bubble wrap scrunched onto the paint surface, this makes a fab background.
 
 
Cut the cat out, adhere it to the card with Cosmic Shimmer glue, add a Tim Holtz sentiment, mount onto black card and then your cardstock.
  
 
There you have a slightly alternative or quirky Christmas card ;)

 

 

Supplies Used:


 

Hope you like it
