Le Chat Bleu Card

by Linda Phinney

This card started out as a play on George Rodrigue's Blue Dog, and ended up having a desert evening kind of vibe.  This how most of my projects end up.

As described on Tuesday in the Coloring Corner post, spritz cold press water color paper with water then with Adirondack Color Wash in Denim and Sailboat Blue, and Glimmer Mist in Jazz Blue and Blue Skies.

Stamp Frantic Stamper Cling-Mounted Rubber Stamp - Lg Sitting Short Hair cat on paper created above three times with Colorbox Pigment Ink in Black and sprinkle and emboss with Judikins Detail EP in black. cut out one cat, one cat front (head and legs),  and one cat head.

Highlight cat's chest fur on cat front and tips of ears on cat head with Adirondack Color Wash in Wild Plum.  Highlight chin, cheeks, and bridge of cat's nose on cat head with white pigment pen.

Mount cat front and extra head on base cat with foam tape.

Create background on grey card stock spritzing Crafter's Workshop Templates 6"x6" Zinnia with Adirondack Color Wash in Eggplant, Sailboat Blue and Glimmer Mist Jazz Blue, layer on black and then purple folded cardstock, also punch 2/14" circle out of this piece, layer on black cs (I used pinking shears on the black cardstock), mount on card.

Mount cat on card/background with foam tape.

Create sentiment with KaiserCraft - 2.25"x3" clear stamp - You're Simply the Best on the grey spritzed card stock, layer on black, mount on card.
