Brutus Monroe has a ton of fun stamps, and for this card I used the Rockstar Pets set. There's this fun hipster cat along with a dog wearing headphones and several really fun sentiments.
This cat had so much personality he was just dying to be stamped out and watercolored! The rest of the card is super clean and simple, to let the cat stand out.
First, the cat was stamped out using the Misti and some Raven Detail Ink. Then, before the ink dried, I used clear embossing powder and embossed the image.
Then, using Distress Ink Pumice Stone, Hickory Smoke, and Festive Berries, I added color to the cat. Embossing the lines always seems to help with watercoloring- it creates a barrier that helps hold the color in the lines.
The very last thing to do was stamp and emboss the sentiment, as well, and then add a little Glossy Accents to the glasses to make it look like real lenses!
Hope this gives you a better close up look at this stamp set! Don't forget to check out the store over at Brutus Monroe for not only this set, but a ton more!
