I stamped the kitty and then stamped a second one on a Post-it note to use as a mask. Then I stamped the books over the mask so that the kitty is sitting on the pile of books. I don't remember masking before so this was my first time. It was easier than I thought! I coloured the image with Prismacolor pencils and proceeded to cut or die-cut all the shapes needed for the sketch and then layered them together.
Here's the Mojo Monday sketch:
Here are the dies used:
- MFT Jumbo Fishtail Banner Stax
- Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangles
- Simon Says Stamp Stitched Squares
- Stitched Line from Simon Says Stamp Bundle of Stitched Shapes
I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set in Versafine Smokey Grey and finished off the card with some star-shaped gems.
