Return of the Glitter Cats
My plan was to have the cats silhouetted against a moon, and I achieved this with a post it note mask cut level with the top of the wall, a few shades of Blue Distress ink pads and my shaving brush blender brushes.
As well as masking for the moon, I cut a Post it in half to protect the level of the wall, although I've had an idea for that now, so it wont matter.
Post its in place, I chose 3 colours of Distress ink, Stormy Sky, Faded Jeans and Chipped Sapphire.
Stormy Sky, as the lightest of the three went on first................
followed by Faded Jeans.
Chipped Sapphire went on last.
Then I thought some bare tree branches outlined against the moon would look good, and for this I'm using one of a set from Chocolate Baroque,
called Design a tree, which is four A6 size stamps of different shaped trees, along with leaf & blossom stamps for each one.
This particular tree is the Woodland one. Its stamped in Versafine Onyx Black, and word of caution here- on this card, Double sided Silk coated, by Clarity Cards, the Versafine doesn't dry very quickly, so handle with care, or give it a blast with the heat gun.
I have a bit of a pale patch in the sky on this one, I think I had some baby wipe liquid on my finger. I shall be trying to hide it with the tree!
I've got three done so far, and I'm thinking about adding some shrubbery along the base & sides of the wall. That sounds very Monty Python,lol. Probably add some DI's in Old Paper & Tea Dye to the area first to tone down the white.
