Ink Smooshing with Purrfect Digi Stamps

Hello lovely peeps

This is another one of the cards I had published in Creative Stamping magazine, made with the Purrfect set from Simply Sweet Stamps.

I used the ink smooshing technique for this one. First I dabbed Wilted Violet and Picked Raspberry Distress Oxides onto my craft mat and spritzed them with water before dragging an A5 piece of 160gsm cartridge paper through the ink. I dried and repeated the process a couple of times to build up interest.

After drying and flattening the paper I printed some of the cats onto it and then cut them out (chopping off the whiskers and tails). I coloured in the spots on the small cat with some more Picked Raspberry DO.

Other ingredients:
5x7” landscape card blank from Anna Marie Designs
Just Hatched digi paper from Nitwit
Autumn Branches die by Sheena Douglass
Santoro Willow A4 Paper Pad
Flower Mini Craft Punch from Hobbycraft
Black Enamel Accents from Ranger
Simply The Best White Card 250gsm from Limetree Crafts
Sakura Pigma Black Micron Fineliner .005
Black cotton sewing thread
