How-to Paintbrush Poe

Hello all in blog land. It is Cathy here with my paintbrush Poe.

This is how I made it.
First get a cheap paintbrush( I got my from Michael's)
I painted the handle and the bristles with white paint. Then I painted the frame white.

Next I added black paint to the frame when it was still wet so it turned gray in spots.
Then I added black to my paint bristles. Then I rubbed some black paint in spots on the frame. Next I took some purple paint and added it to the bristles. When That was drying I took some gold and rubbed it oh so lightly over the frame to add a hint of gold to it. Then I added it to the bristles. I did add paint to the front and back of the brush and bristles.
So while that was all drying I stamped out my Goth Poe from the new stamps at Lost Coast. Colored it with Copic markers. When the frame was dry I traced the inside oval so I could cut out and add it to the frame.
The last thing I did was glue it all together. It was a fun altered paintbrush to do.

 Thanks for looking. Enjoy

New Collar How-to

Hi it's Cathy here and I have a fast and fun card make.

First I started with a Kraft color cardstock and I embossed it with a embossing folder. I had one with crazy lines over it. It reminded me of how a cat would chase a toy.
Next I stamped the Happy Cat  on Copic friendly paper and colored her in cool grays.
 ( I had a cat the same color when I was a kid)
Then I fussy cut her out. As I was looking at her and seeing that smile on her I thought she needed a collar. So I made her a collar.
This is how I made the collar. Took some velvet ribbon and ran a strip of tape down the back side and the I folded it over. Next I added a bright shinny gold bell. Glued the collar on the cat and the stuck foam squares to rise the cat up. Then I saw I had a fish bone die and added that to the card
Last  I edged the card with some brown ink.
Told you it was fast and fun.
