Happy cat !

Hello everyone,

It is my turn on Roc's blog today but I am a day early because tomorrow (1st of May) there is something exciting happening ! Watch this space !
Anyway, I have a postcard to share,  I hope you like it !

This background was lying around. I love making backgrounds and I collect them all in a little file for when I have not much time of don't feel like getting the paints and inks out... 
This one was made with Brusho's. I came out quite nice I think. I used a flower stencil and sprayed water through it and then mopped up the water with some kitchen paper. Isn't this effect cool? I think Dyan Reavely calls it ghosting and she does it with her Dylusions inks. 
I didn't do much more to the background as I liked it like this. I did add some paper (a page out of a book that I coloured with a copic marker) at the bottom and some washitape over that paper and in the top left corner. White paint splatters and a white line around the card finished off the background. 
I then stamped the cat and the bird, coloured them with Copic markers, cut them out and adhered to the postcard. For the sentiment I stamped 'i'm a happy camper' partly ie.  happy and from the word 'camper' just the first two letters, I then drew the 't' myself to spell 'Happy Cat'. 

I used three of Roc's fabulous stamps:
