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.
