Zinski Cat Card by Nikki Acton


Hi everyone. I treated myself recently to a couple of the new PaperArtsy Zinski Mini stamps. I don’t normally do cute but I couldn’t resist the little cat and dog stamps.

I started this card with a painted background using DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylics – randomly painted in blues and greens (colours below). I added some stencilling with Tim Holtz Splotches layering stencil and That’s Crafty! Circles Dinky stencil and some random background stamping. No great plan here just building up a background.

I stamped (black Archival) the cat over the painted surface and then coloured in with markers. As I was working on top of a green background my colours are a little muted – next time I might paint him or fussy cut to get a little more impact and colour.

I added a little Tim Holtz Design tape and some random doodling with Posca Pens. The circles and Happy Birthday are from Emma Godfreys Birthday stamp set (EEG18).
