Yesterday was my daughter Fiona's birthday, and I made her card using some of the Katzelkraft stamps that she bought me earlier this year.
First I stamped the cat, and then masked it and stamped the water over the top. Then with the mask still in place I created a "mock bokeh" effect by using a very small round blending sponge and several shades of blue and grey ink. How hard you dab the sponge on the paper determines not only the intensity of the colour, but also the diameter of the circle. The cat is coloured in with Promarkers. Various papers from my stash formed the layers, with a sentiment that I think sums all cats up perfectly, from a Dylusions set. The clouds are die cut using a die from the docrafts X-cut "New Baby Icons" set, with a little grey added with Promarkers.
