Cat stamp bookmark


stamp image & sentiments: Tim Holtz Snarky Cats
others: Mijello Mission Gold watercolour, TH distress ink pad (Broken China, Mustard Seed), stencil, stencil blending brush

Stamped the image on watercolour paper, coloured it with Mijello watercolour and then fussy cut the image and adhered to the bookmark.

On a piece of cardstock, I use honeycomb stencil and inked the background using distress ink pad with blending brush tool. It was therapeutic for me, able to create such background with simple tools.
