Feline Fine!!

Feline Fine!!

I'm sure you've heard of the Tiger that came to Tea in that well known childrens book? Well how about the Tiger that came to chill in the Pool!! Not quite the same ring to it but he's relaxing there never the less...



I placed him in a paddling pool from an Avery Elle stamp set by using selective inking and masking like this...



First I stamped the tiger image but left part of the swim ring un-inked and then stamped the same image again on scrap paper to make a mask. I then stamped the paddling pool whilst the tiger was masked.... remember you have to cut across the uninked area of the mask so the pool will stamp correctly...



I used the same technique for the ball and then coloured with Polychrome Pencils. I cut around the image with scissors and left a strip attached for the sentiment. I blended Squeezed Lemonade and Mustard Seed Distress oxide onto a card base leaving a lighter strip across the centre and then used the darker of the two inks to stamp leaves and flowers along both top and bottom edges and brush splatters in the pale areas.



Once I'd attached the pool I added a parasol and a couple of green leaves to complete the scene.... doesn't he look so content, a cool pool is just what you need in the weather we've been having!!


Thanks for stopping by, catch you next week :)
