Meet Hamish...the Scottish Hipster Cat...

Hi folks...I've been itching to get inky with the fabulous Hipster set of stamps from Tim Holtz and Stampers Anonymous and decided to use them along with Brushstrokes both shipping now to a craft store near you. I had a hard time choosing which image to ink first but decided to go with the Cool Cat. As he now lives in Scotland and has been christened Hamish by the cubbyhole crew...we decided he needed a nice Harris Tweed jacket to keep him warm.
But first I stamped one of the Brushstroke images on to Ranger Watercolor Card with Forest Moss Distress Ink and tapped Ranger's Scraper tool into Candied Apple Distress Paint to create the red threads...adding a little bit of water/paint flicking and splattering to create a co-ordinating background...
I die cut a Sizzix/Tim Holtz Stitched Oval from watercolor card and stamped "Hamish" in the centre...coloured with Distress Markers and used the fine tip of the markers to create the plaid look on his cosy Harris Tweed jacket.
I stamped him again on to watercolor card...cut out his tie and glasses and popped them on to 3D foam to create dimension...added Glossy Accents to his glasses and created shading around the image with Forest Moss and Ground Espresso Distress Inks.

stamped the sentiments from the set with Black Archival and added Small Talk Label Stickers.
I wonder who will be next ...the goat perhaps...he looks like a laid-back kind of dude.
Toodle-oo for now from Hamish and the cubbyhole crew

Well, damn...that's one cool cat you've got there, Kath. I think Tim would be amazed to see what you've created! He's a bit stern isn't he but I guess that's because he's a hipster lol.

Tremendous job...I think he's my favorite character of all the stamps & I'm mad for plaid which you made using my absolute most cherished Tim Holtz color forest moss.
