Debby's Doodles

Hello, Debby Hughes here. In today’s video, I’m taking a very rough sketch, filling it out into a plan and taking it to a finished card using the Christmas Kitties set from Simon Says Stamp.

STEP BY STEP INSTRUCTIONS

  • Create a rough sketch in a notebook/on the corner of a piece of paper/whatever is to hand at the time.
  • Cut a piece of scratch paper to size and expand the sketch. Planning out in pencil and a light ink the placement of elements.
  • Cut a piece of watercolour card to size and pencil a border around the edges.
  • Stack the plan on top of the card and place in a Misti.
  • Align the cat stamp according to the sketch. Lift the sketch paper and stamp the cat in Antique Linen Distress Ink.
  • Use a Nested Circle die to draw in pencil a crescent moon according to the placement planned out in the sketch.
  • Tape the card to a board and fully cover the wide border.
  • Watercolour. I used Daniel Smith paints.
  • Lift the Painter’s Tape and place the card back in the Misti.
  • Treat with Anti-Static Powder and stamp a greeting in Versamark ink before heat embossing Simon Says Stamp White Embossing Powder.
  • If the edges of the paint have bled, trim the panel and attach to another piece of watercolour card with foam tape.
  • Use a Faber Castell Polychromo pencil to deepen the shadows.
  • Use white gouache and a paintbrush to add stars randomly over the background.
  • Attach the panel to a card base cut and scored from Ivory card.

Well, that’s me for this month. I hope you enjoyed this tutorial. Thanks for joining me and I hope to see you next time for Doodling With Debby.
