ColorBox Cat’s Eye Queues Print

by | August 17th, 2015 | 1


Hi Clearsnap fans! Dana Tatar here today sharing an 8.5×11 inch print that I made with ColorBox® Cat’s Eye® Queues and a sheet of adhesive-backed Rustic Cherry BARC Wood from Arc Crafts. I frequently find inspiration on Pinterest, especially for home decor pieces. I found a fantastic print created by Katie Harris. The first thought I had after how amazing her design was, was how the colorful shapes looked like impressions made with a ColorBox® Cat’s Eyes® Queue. Rather than getting out a ruler and compass and spending time drawing lines and circles, I decided to create a free form print using the fantastic shape of the Queues as a guide.

I used a fun mix of bright, jewel tone and metallic Queues for this piece. I carefully pressed the individual Cat’s Eye ink pads onto a sheet of 12×12 inch Rustic Cherry BARC Wood, alternating the color and direction of the ink pad across the paper. Once the paper was two-thirds colored, I dried the ink with a heat gun and trimmed the sheet down to 8.5×11 inches. I then peeled the protective backing off of the BARC sheet and pressed it onto a piece of thin cardboard. I’m planning on picking up a metallic frame for this piece so I can proudly display my new work of art.

The ColorBox Cat’s Eye® Queues of themed hues helped to take the guess work out of color coordination so I could design with more confidence.

There are dozens of ColorBox® Cat’s Eye® Queues available with a variety of different ink formulas. What stack of Cat’s Eye® Queue® ink pads feature your go-to color palette?
