A Thank You for Kat Scrappiness

Distress Ink Blending with several Layers of Masking
I have to say good bye, good bye to a great team and an amazing experience. This is my last post for the Kat Scrappiness Design Team. The half year is already over. Sometimes it’s scary how fast time passes by. But I’m not gone forever. You can still follow me on my blog and stay in contact with me through social media.

This card just had to be a thank you card for Kat and Deb. Thanks to them I was allowed to join a great team and share my love for with you. I thought that a little word game might be funny, so I used a scrappy cat stamp for the Kat Scrappiness thank you card πŸ˜›

As you know I love messing around with Distress Inks, so I decided to create several layers with masked off hearts. I used the two smallest heart dies to create the masks from Inkadinkado masking paper.

Then I applied the first layer of ink (Twisted Citron) and placed the first mask so it sat between the sentiment and the scrappy cat.

With the first mask in place, I added another layer of Twisted Citron Distress Ink and splattered a little water on top.

Now I switched colors and added another layer of Distress Ink on top. After every new color, I added a new mask and sometimes splattered some water on top.

I finished after I added some more Cracked Pistachio, Mowed Lawn, Crushed Olive and Peacock Feathers and removed all the masks to reveal the beauty underneath.

To create a pretty frame, I ran the panel through my die cut machine with the new stitched fancy scalloped rectangle die.

It was time to color the scrappy cat πŸ˜› As you can see I was very precise with coloring it. I used Copic markers in warm gray and then fuzzy cut it.

Next up, I die cut the thank you with Kat’s Thank You die and heat embossed it with black Nuvo embossing powder.

A few sequins later, I adhered the sentiment and the cat to the panel and all to the card base.

What do you think? A thank you card worthy for Kat, Deb and the Kat Scrappiness Design team? πŸ˜€

Thanks for joining us. I can’t wait to see what the new design team comes up with!

    What a great card! I love the distressed background you created! I finally got some of those distress inks for Christmas, but haven’t used them for blending backgrounds yet. I plan on doing so very soon!
