This little image is so adorable - I just had to have it! I picked it up last month at Peddler's Den when I was there teaching a Tombow Dual Brush Pen Techniques class. It was only fitting that I use that technique the first time I used the image. :o)
- Rub anti static bag over water color paper. Ink up image with black ink, stamp onto watercolor paper, sprinkle with embossing powder and heat set.
- Add color to the image with markers. Start with lightest shades and cover the largest area within an embossed area, then spread with water brush. Allow to dry. Color the next shade covering less area, then spread with water brush. Allow to dry. Color with the darkest shade covering a small area and spread color with water brush. Allow to dry.
- Repeat for the rest of the areas to color. NOTE: for the kitten - after I colored him light yellow, I drew slightly darker yellow lines vertically for his fur, then lightly ran the waterbrush along the lines.
- Adhere all layers.
- Stamp small kitten into corner of A2 size card stock. color with markers. Use a white pencil for his face. I turned the design paper over for a smooth yellow surface. Trim 1/4 " off top and off one side. Adhere to inside.
- Be sure to sign your little piece of art!
