Fluffy Cat Photographer and Some Stenciling for Stamping Sensations Mid Month

Hello and welcome! It's the 18th of the month and that means it's time for some midmonth inspiration at the Stamping Sensations challenge blog where this month our theme is "I Love....". Still plenty of time to join us for a chance to win a wonderful Penny Black prize. 

And here is what I made:


If you've been following my blog for some time then you know that I love cats, not only my real life critters but also Penny Black's cat stamps :-) This one is called "Snap Shot". I also love stenciling, my DSLR camera and hobby photography (I'm a novice, I just enjoy doing it), as well as my new butterflies die set

I started out by stenciling the design on Bristol Vellum paper using my Penny Black Hypnotic stencil. The cat was stamped on Canson Montval paper then watercolored using my Zig Clean Color brush pens and Zig Detailer watercolor brush (which btw. I both also love) I fussy cut this and then glued onto the stenciled card front. I didn't bother fussy cutting around the bird and whiskers, instead I simply stamped the image directly onto the card front first.

I cut a line of grass using an inked piece of card stock and my scissors. The quote was typed on the computer and printed out. Butterflies were done with my new favorite butterfly die set Soaring by Penny Black. 


Thanks so much for visiting! Remember you can still join us until the end of April and up to 3 times with a different creation.

  4. I didn't realise photography was one of your hobbies Ellie, I missed that somewhere. I try but my shaky hands don't lend themselves to it and with one son being a professional photographer for Nat Geo there's too much to live up to.

    A great card for the theme and perfect quotes togo with it.
