Mama Elephant

Cats and … more cats postcard

It’s been a while since I’ve joined in with the Postcard Art swap just because I’ve had so much going on… but this month I’m back in the gang and the theme was Cats or Dogs.I went for cats for my postcard though and used my Cats meow Mama Elephant stamps. I just adore these clustered group big stamps (I’ve got the dog and snowman one too!)I stamped it and masked it and added a few more kitties to the back of the crowd including one with a sign saying hi! Then I watercoloured them using a mix of distress inks.The distress inks I used I had pressed onto my glass mat and then sprayed water onto it and smoothed another piece of water colour card onto it to create the background…. a great way of keeping the colours the same!I then added the meow words on the background and edged the panel. The top panel I trimmed down a bit so it would be smaller than the base to show the inky background and edged that too.Once I had adhered it I then added glossy accents to some elements like the sign, the heart, the monacle. This gives them a raised and glossy finish.Love how this came out and how cute these kitties are!Happy crafting!Catherine
