Two black cats and a sparkly sun

Perfect for a wedding card, anniversary, Valentine, or just to say hello to a friend. This is another of the projects from my Caturday Live event.

To create the shiny sun background, we began with the 'smoosh technique' on some watercolour paper. This is how...

  1. Spritz a piece of watercolour paper with water
  2. Take one of your clear stamping blocks and press into an ink pad, then 'smoosh' it onto the wet paper
  3. Take a clean, dry block and repeat with another colour
  4. Allow to dry (or speed up with the heat gun) then die-cut your circle
  5. Ink it all over with Versamark and then emboss with a mixture of clear embossing powder and Dazzling Diamonds glitter. 
The result is a no-mess glitter effect. Hurrah!
