Donna here today with my favourite grumpy cat stamp and one of the fab new shrines from That’s Crafty! which was showcased at the Stitches trade show a couple of weeks ago.
What to do:
As I used Dylusions paint for this I didn’t need to use Gesso, which I normally would on MDF. As it was so pink I edged it with a little black Distress ink just to tone it down a bit!
Next stamp the Tim Holtz fish bone stamp over the front, inner and sides with black Archival ink.
Stamp grumpy cat and his tie onto on a piece of Strathmore Mixed Media Paper and colour in with diluted Distress markers, fussy cut out and put to one side. Stamp the word happy and the little heart from one of That’s Crafty! clear stamp sets and adhere to the background.
Take grumpy cat and pop him into the booth on a couple of foam pads to make him stand out more. Add a little bit of muslin to represent a little curtain, and then add some Tim Holtz sentiments.
Use some letters also from Tim Holtz to make the words up on the shrine, add a little bit of bling with some shimmery beads and glittery pens. Then assemble all together, using a clear glue to hold it all in place.
I did do the back as well with a little MDF heart on it but rather stupidly forgot to take a picture of it!
Poor grumpy cat, I wonder if he got any ‘customers’ even though it was free ;)
