There's a very basic mistake on my card and I totally blame that the flu I have had has turned my brain to mush.
I wanted to use a Crazy cat from Tim Holtz stamps and decided to use the Simon Says Stamp Falling Rain Background stamp. Using Ranger Clear Embossing Powder and a Clear Embossing Inkpad I stamp and embossed my rain.
Then I used a Ranger Mini Inkpad in Tumbled Glass on a bit of plastic, added water and a large paintbrush painted across the rain drops. I placed this to one side to dry and concentrated on my crazy cat.
I actually used some more mini inkpad and the blending tool to colour my cat, I think they were Spiced Marmalade, Ripe Persimmonn and Rusty Hinge. I cut out four layers, his tail, body, front legs and head. I wasn't bothered that the blended ink went over his eye because I cut them out of a non coloured image to make them stand.
Now my cat is looking up and I decided he needed to look at something so that was why I got out the Simon Says Stamp Cloudy Skies to use the clouds and then I saw the birds so had to use them too.
To finish I used a sentiment that was with the Cloudy Skies and thought it was perfect.
The basic mistake, I should of coloured wash first and stamp with the inkpad, then embossed because my rain is white and looks like snow!
So now it's YOUR turn. Happy Crafting
