Nice Normal Family by Eret

Hi! It's Eret here. Today I want to share a simple and fun card made with Sparkle N Sprinkle Chicken Run Stamp Set #761 and Stampendous stamp named Whiskers

For a start I smudged some Distress Inks (Tea Dye, Vintage Photo, Hickory Smoke) to the craft mat, spritzed them with water and placed piece of watercolor cardstock in to it. I dried the CS and placed back to the ink. After I was happy with the background and it was totally dry, I took the Whiskers  stamp, inked it with Versamark ink and stamped the image on top of the background. Image was heat embossed with Coffee Embossing Powder. I added some shading to the cats with same Distress inks and watercolor brush. Darker shadows was colored with Gray marker. Background of the cats is colored with Mother of Pearl Nuvo Embellishment Mousse and waterbrush. 
Cats eyes are colored with White Gel Pen and Citrus Green Embellishment Mousse.  

Cats eyeballs needed a bit more so I covered them with Apple Sour Nuvo Glow Drops. Because I didn't want their eyes to be dimensional, I added Glow Drops with small paintbrush. Nuvo Glow Drops makes their eyes to glow in the dark. Of course the glow would had been more intense If I had added bigger drops, but it is cool like this too. After Glow Drops was dried, I draw a little dot back in center of their eyeballs with Black marker.

Sentiment is from Chicken Run stamp set. Love how well it goes together with Whiskers  stamp. Sentiment is stamped with Versamark ink to the Black Cardstock and it's heat embossed with White Detail Embossing Powder. Pattern on some of the cats was covered with Dimensional Glue and Elephant Flocking.

Edges of the matting layer behind the cats are covered with 1/4" Double Sided Tear-ific Tape and Black Ice Glitter. Edges of the card base are covered with 1/2" Double Sided Tear-ific Tape. Half of the tape is covered with Sterling Microfine Glitter and rest is covered with Elephant Flocking.

Really love how you used the pearl drop color for their eyes, what an affect! Love cats anyway. The card stamp I truly love and the sentiment makes it that more special. Great tips

Eret – This is so pretty! I love all the cats, and what you did to their bodies and eyes. The matting is really pretty too. Gorgeous!
