Hello all in blog land. Cathy here to show you how I did my Cheshire Cat
This was a great card to do.
Items you will need for this, photo paper, Distress Oxide ink, baby wipes, soft cloth, stencil, black ink pad, verafine ink and white paper.
Here is some of the stuff you need for it.
Here is what the photo paper looks likes after you do the smooching technique with the Distress Oxide inks. I did one color at a time. Dried in-between colors. *note always move heat gun* The heat gun will damage the photo paper if you keep it in one spot for to long.
I hope you can see it is cloudy in looks.
Next you take the soft cloth and buff the cloudiness away. (the Oxide ) You can see me start it in the corner here.
Here it is done after the buff. The paper has a shiny/glossy look to it. At this point you can leave it here and got on to stamping. Not me though. See that darker spot on the paper. This is where I too my baby wipe to get rid of the darker spot. (sometimes you will get streaks just keep wiping it till they go away)
After the baby wipe.
Next you just have to stamp your image on the photo paper. Me I chose the Cheshire Cat
. I then I stamped it on white paper and cut out the eyes and fangs and glued them on the front of the image. It makes it pop I think. Cut the image out and layered on white cardstock.
For the stencil background I took a stencil (one from Tim's Halloween last year) and used my Versafine ink through the stencil.
