The Other Cat's Out Of The Bag

     Another cat card, again safely delivered and free to be blogged. I made this one at the same time as the Happy Birthday one but this does differ slightly.

      I started by placing the media plate on the stamp press and inking it up with Izink dye inks, three colours all blended with the brayer.
     I stamped the white card, used the brayer again, no more ink, and stamped again just to get a good covering. 
     With just a little more ink dabbed on around the edge of the media plate, using a blending egg, inking the oval was finished. The media plate was cleaned off gently with a soft cloth to remove excess ink.
      For this next technique the image panel must be completely dry. Using a different stencil I used Versamark to make the pattern on the media plate  and stamped this sticky pattern on to the inked oval.
     The next step was to cover the Versamark with pearl mica powder to create a pattern that will change depending on the angle of the light hitting the card.
     Using the same cat but a different greeting I stamped them onto the image panel as before and again added a purple layer between the black and white layers. Just to fix the mica I gave it a light spray of inexpensive hairspray, which doesn't seem to affect the ink or stamping.
