Dreamweaver Challenge for February: Going Green or St. Patty's Day
For today's post I wanted to keep it simple, because I just got my art room back and I've been busy setting up. I decided to use the Retro Sitting Kitty (LL3020) and the Big Dot Background (LX 7011). I dry embossed the kitty on white card stock by running it through my big shot and I did the Big dots in the same manner on green card stock. I then added color to the kitty by placing the stencil over the embossed image and using a small stenciling brush I brushed in Adirondack's Willow, once done with that I added Citrus in to areas where I wanted shading. Then sliding a cross stitch screen (SC) underneath I added Adirondack Lettuce just on the tummy, the top of the head and the back leg and base of the tail. The big dot background was done the same way with the same colors only using a 1/2 in stencil brush. I added some twine and a button for my embellishments and to green rhinestones for the eyes.
