I recently got this stamp set from Taylored Expressions. It's called Party Grumplings. Freakin HILARIOUS!
The grumpy cat is colored with Spectrum Noir Markers:
- Balloon - DR2, CR5, PP3
- Cat - EB6, EB1, IG10, IG8, IG4, IG2
- Shadow - IG1, IG2, Blender
The background is a technique I call "Speckled Watercolor Wash Background." Not sure if that's an official technique name, but it fits for what I did. I used my Spectrum Aqua Markers to paint with.
Doesn't that background look like one of those giant jaw breakers? Like an explosion of yummy on paper! I applied a wash of light blue to the watercolor cardstock panel. After it dried (Confession: I dried it with my heat gun..cause I was impatient!) I flicked other colors on...making sure each color was dry before moving on to the next.
The Spectrum Aqua Marker used for the watercolored background:
- Wash - Teal
- Flicked Colors - Navy, Bud Green, Gold
It's hard to see, but I did paint on some clear shimmer on the balloon before covering with dimensional glaze. I also added glaze to the cats nose.
I can't wait to color more of these fun "grumpy" critters!
Have a creative day,
