Knit Happens Kitty

I had so much fun masking the ball of yarn.

 I knew I wanted to make a big pile of yarn balls so I stamped a bunch of balls onto some copy paper and cut them out. I started stamping the solid balls  but took off the piece of yarn that extended beyond the ball.  After inking each one, I wiped the extra piece of yarn off the stamp using my damp absorber cloth. I stamped all of the solid balls of yarn and placed a mask over each one. I continued stamping balls of yarn and masking as needed. 

I filled in any open gaps with a Copic Liner and colored the pile of yarn with Copic Markers. I stamped, drew in a little extra detail for the kitty's stripes, and colored my kitty with Copic Markers. I fussy cut both the kitty and the pile of yarn. I cut around the kitty's paws to slide his bottom half behind the pile of yarn. I drew in the wooden floor, masked it off and sponged some Tim Holtz Distress Inks over it. I also scored in the baseboard.  I popped up the kitty and pile of yarn onto my card base.
