Billy’s Summer Garden

Hi again! Wow we are spoiling you with inspiration today!!!

Up next is Jane Tyrrell with a superb project featuring our awesome Curious Cats stamps…

A while back I shared a sneak peek of the Visible Image Designer 3D challenge feature for Craft Stamper Magazine. This piece is also very relevant inspiration for the “dimension” challenge running over in the Visible Image Facebook group. All the details and links for this will be at the end of this post.

As you may know, my garden is a constant source for my crafting inspiration. Billy my cat is also a constant shadow out there and he really loves the summer months when we spend many pleasant hours outside.

Billy has a friend called Blackie who visits, so when it came to choosing a set of stamps to work with for my project, I did not hesitate to chose this one…

the amazing Curious Cats set…

I used a Visible Image MDF Monolith and added some die cuts for initial texture

and gave it some colour using these “garden inspired” PaperArsty fresco paints.

I also added some texture paste through my dots and floral stencil.

To give me this base.

I added some shading and the fun paw prints from the set

I stamped my Cat face and carefully applied it.

I then stamped a small dragonfly from the Live in the Moment set

I stamped, embossed and fussy cut out the small cats and die cut some floral elements

It was then time to put on my creative hat..

and here is my finished ‘Billy’s Summer Garden’ Monolith

and a few close ups…

I made a picket fence from coffee stirrers and added a texture paste path

and Glossy Accents to his eyes and his sweet pink nose….?

and to prove that Billy really has a friend called Blackie who visits I took this snap last week..

Thanks so much for stopping by today and for the very kind comments that you take the time to leave. Thank you also for all the lovely messages, texts and emails sent to me after seeing the Create and Craft show too. I love finding out that I can inspire people in their own crafting. I am happy to share my knowledge and techniques.. sharing is caring in my books and we are all on a fun creative journey.

Back soon.
Bye for now,
