You’ve Cat To Be Kitten Me! – Ink Blending to Ground An Image

October 5, 2018

Hey Roadies! It’s Ashlea and today I’m sharing this super adorable and punny cat card using the Purr Babies stamp set. I wanted to stay true to my clean and simple style but I knew I wanted a nice pop of color. Fall is finally here and that means we’ll probably be using a muted and cozy color palette for the remainder of the year, so I wanted to bring in a nice bright color to brighten up the blog!

I’m a Roadie so I obviously chose pink and black. I stamped the cat and box in Momento Tuxedo Black ink and colored it in with Copic Markers. For the white fur look on the cat, I used C3 and C1 as shadow colors where there would be a cast shadow on the car and then used the colorless blended “0” to blend it all out. This gives the appearance of white fur but adds a bit on dimension to shaded areas of the cat. I also colored in the box and made sure to add shadows where I thought they would be cast from the kitty. After I was done, I fussy cut it out and kept it to the side until I was ready to adhere it to my card front.

Because I knew I’d need to ground the cat-in-the-box, I decided pretty early on that I’d use that for my pop of color. I decided where I’d want my cat image and masked off anything above it on a piece of 4″ x 5 1/4″ card stock using full sticky back post it notes. Using It’s A Girl ink by Catherine Pooler, I blended until I was happy with the saturation and how it blended out into the white of the card. After removing the post it note masking, I was left with a nice space to adhere my kitten to that would ground the image so it wouldn’t look as if it were floating. I stamped the “You’ve Cat To Be Kitten Me” sentiment in Versafine Onyx Black Ink, adhered the cat with foam tape and added some sequins to make it a little sparkly. For the matted background I used a piece of 4 1/8″ x 5 3/8″ white card stock and blended Its A Girl once more around the edges to make it appear as if it were colored card stock. And it matches the color on my card front perfectly! Win, Win!

I hope that you’ve enjoyed learning a bit about how I created this card and how I created my own colored card stock. Let me know what you think of the clean and simple style! I’ll see you soon 🙂
