Welcome to my stop on the Colorado Craft Company bloghop! So glad you’re here for a sweet kitten project….she’s made you some chocolate chip cookies, but watch out for a few stray cat hairs when you try one ;0)

This stamp set is called Bake Me Happy – and you simply need to get it not just because it’s adorable – but so you can come join me for a free Zoom call and we’ll paint it together! Read on for more.

Tutorial: Watercoloring a Stamped Kitten (with dot card)

Watch the video below and scroll to the end to leave comments or questions — or click HERE to watch it on YouTube and leave comments over there. I read both dutifully!

Adapt this design!

To stamp the images, I floated the cat above the bowl to leave room for contents; when stamping the utensils, I only added ink onto the outside edges so they disappear into the cookie dough.

This is painted with a dot card but try it with your own watercolors. And if you want to have the ability to make that line under the kitten disappear without masking, use a light ink; this one is tan, no longer available, but any light color can do.

Try making your cookie dough into flour by just some white shading; but be careful to either mask out or cover the straight line under her chin. White gouache can help with that, but be aware it’s whiter than most watercolor papers.

 

You’re invited to ZOOM!

I’ll be on Zoom with a version of the piggie card; since I’d like to squeeze in a second version too, simplifying it from this a little will likely be in order. If you RSVP I’ll send out the color list and instructions to have your paper stamped before that day. It’s a couple weeks away so don’t panic yet; I’ll send that out a few days ahead.

For updated details like, oh, that whole date/time thing, you can go to Artventure and check the Events tab. It’ll show the correct time and date in your zone.

    I’ve watched your video twice and so far! The stamp set is just adorable! I love the way you created such cute scenes with the stamps–leaving empty space for the dough in the bowl was genius! I can’t wait to Zoom with you and friends and see you create more cuteness with the set!
