One-Layer Scene with Catitude and Thinking of You

Hello, again!  It’s Andrea back with you, and I’m super excited to share today’s project, which combines one of the cute kitties from Catitude with the gorgeous flowers from Thinking of You Always.

I love creating scene cards and knew I had to make one with these sets.  The trick with one-layer scenes is to stamp the image(s) you want to be in the front first and then, after masking that, stamp the other images.  It’s all about working in layers.  I started with the floral bunch in the center of my garden.  I created a mask for it by stamping the image onto masking paper (post-it notes also work) and cutting it out with my scissors.  I was able to use just one mask by moving it before stamping additional images.  Once everything was stamped, I removed the masks and colored the panel with Copics.

To create my sky, I masked the kitty and ink-blended with Tumbled Glass distress ink.  As the ink is so light and I knew I wanted to fade it near the floral border, I didn’t bother to mask the flowers.  After removing the mask, I die-cut the panel with the Stitched Rectangles Set 1 Dies and adhered it to a white card.

Onto a strip of black cardstock, I white heat-embossed a sentiment from Catitude.  I used my scissors to “flag” one end of the strip and popped it up with foam tape onto my card.  I added some highlights to the kitty with a white gel pen and finished with some clear Nuvo Drops.

Have a wonderful day!
