An Expressive and Innovative Mixed Media Art Ezine for Paper Crafters, Collage and Assemblage Artists

Absolute Purrr-fection

By Chris / CS Designs
This Art Trading card was created using one of my new Postage Stamp digital designs. It's a rather whimsical design with a bit of an attitude. The main focal point has been colored with Prismacolor pencils and blended with odorless turpentine using paper stumps. 

The script in the background is from my Digital Engravings line. The red and yellow is a handmade piece of background I made some time ago and use on another project. I created the strip by wrinkling white glossy card stock and then applying layers of yellow and red ink. Where the paper was the most wrinkled the in soaked in to the crevices creating a webbed and distressed look.
For more information on the brass coils around the stamp refer to the Wire Elements Tutorial in this issue
