Cat with Attitude by Tracy Scott

Cat with Attitude by Tracy ScottStep 1: For my project I chose a 5×7 acrylic board and started by taking a scrap of the Tim Holtz tissue paper, adhering with gel matte medium.

Cat with Attitude by Tracy ScottStep 2: I had a scrap of tin foil that I had been picking up excess paint on from other projects and tore this into a couple of pieces to adhere to my board. I like that it has some of the silver foil showing through.

Cat with Attitude by Tracy ScottStep 5: Continuing with the Blackberry Violet and the blending sponge I rubbed the excess paint into the board filling in some more of the white spaces and blending colours together.

Cat with Attitude by Tracy ScottStep 6: I then added some texture with the fabulous Dina Gears stencil (I think this is my favourite stencil of the moment!!) and some Ranger Texture Paste and allow to dry.

Cat with Attitude by Tracy ScottStep 7: Using Dina’s Lime Acrylic Paint I painted in a couple of the triangle of the stencil and rubbed some in randomly to the background to tie the colours together.

Cat with Attitude by Tracy ScottStep 9: I love the Ranger Gold Dabber and love the effect it gives when lightly rubbed over the top of Texture Paste. Here I rubbed it over the gears and added a small amount to the board, going over the same areas again with the Ground Espresso paint to grunge up the board a little, including the edges.

Cat with Attitude by Tracy ScottStep 10: For my final touch I used some of Dina’s White Acrylic Paint and both dabbed it on with my finger to create dots and used the side of a palette knife to create thin white lines.

Cat with Attitude by Tracy ScottStep 11: I stamped one of Tim’s cute crazy cats onto smooth white card and chose the following distress paint colours….Festive Berries, Twisted Citron, Evergreen Bough, Salty Ocean, Cracked Pistachio

Cat with Attitude by Tracy ScottStep 12: Starting with the cracked Pistachio and a small paintbrush I covered the stamped image. I moved on to Evergreen Bough and used this around the edges of the image to create a shadow. I then used the Twisted Citron to add some highlights to the body.

Cat with Attitude by Tracy ScottStep 13: Next, I added some of the Salty Ocean Paint around the edges of the image to add a darker shadow and to finish the painting a little of the Festive Berries (I added this randomly to create some interest). I then went around the whole of the image with a black pencil to add some extra dark shading to create some depth.

Cat with Attitude by Tracy ScottStep 14: I cut out my image and attached to my board using foam tape so that it stood off the board slightly. I then went in with the black Stabilo Aquarellable watercolour pencil to give my cat something to stand on (I couldn’t have him floating in mid-air now could I!!)

Cat with Attitude by Tracy ScottStep 15: I continued with the black Stabilo pencil and added some dark shading all around the edge of my board activating the pencil with water to blend.

Cat with Attitude by Tracy ScottStep 16: I love Dyan’s quotes and always seem to be able to find one that is perfect for the project I am working on, I stamped onto smooth white card and cut out, each piece was then mounted onto the board with foam tape to give some extra dimension.
