Watercolour Wednesday Cheerful Basket

 Are you a dog or a cat person? Me I love dogs πŸ• . Cats do nothing for me but saying that I'm not immune to their cuteness or their antics. But dogs win out for me πŸ˜‰. Which is why I was surprised to gind my self drawn to this oh so cute kitty in the Cheerful Basket stamp set !!!

I started by stamping the kitty onto a piece of masking paper and fussy cut him out. When doing this type of mask I always cut on the stamped outline. I think this gives the best results especially when you are wanting the colour around the image to be as close as possible. I then stamped my kitty onto a card mat. I didn't use watercolour paper as I knew that this was going to be a dryish watercolour wash.

Now the masking paper I used isn't designed for use with water. But it stood up well enough for the quick wash of watercolour I painted over it. I did it in several layers and dried between each one so that the mask didn't get too wet nore stayed wet for too long.

Once I had a watercolour wash I was happy with I kept the mask in place and splattered some grey splodges over top of the piece. I then made sure they were dry and carefully removed my mask.

My cute kitty was revealed in all its white glory.  I decided to use the grey colour to colour him in with tiny touches of very pale pink in his ears.

Whilst waiting for the watercolour to dry I made my card base and cut a mat of pattern paper. I also stamped and cut up my sentiment.  I then found some white twine and iridescent rhinestones to embellish the card.

Once the watercolour mat was dry I also stamped the little butterfly just to add even more cuteness!
